Hey everyone !
I have a confession to make……
I make hundreds of things , from painting to sewing , cooking to gardening I am always beavering away … and I NEVER remember to blog any of them ! I am terrible at it…. I had no idea how many things I haven’t shared in the past few months , until I had lot’s of comments on a social media photo , and I realised I haven’t shared any of my lockdown projects…. and there are a LOT of them !
So , I am turning over a new leaf … while they are starting to fall off the trees anyhoo !
Introducing…… The Rainbow Garden !
I love Gardening , I’ve been growing my own veg for years now , but this year I decided to take on a little cut flower patch for use in the new house.
We moved in August 2019 , and the back garden was… well… brown…. My least favourite colour in the whole world….
So in lockdown I slapped a rainbow on it… ! Getting hold of paint in lockdown was tricky so with a little careful mixing here and there I managed to get a pastel coloured fence rainbow that I could paint over if need be when we leave here. There’s still some painting to do , but the weathers so hit and miss !
I made a rainbow heart hanging from some chopped wood I found in the woodland behind and left over paint.
So easy ! Just bleach your wood so it doesn’t split , then cut to a template , paint and string it onto a top piece. It’s held up so well over summer and through all the recent storms.
I painted these super cute tin planters I found on amazon , lined them with cardboard so not to burn the plant roots in the hot sun , and planted them with my favourite lavenders I use for making heat bags in the winter 🙂
Have you been out in the garden this year ?
