Is it really summer?

Hello! It's been a while since I last wrote anything on the blog. It's been one busy summer, if that's what we can call it?

The house renovation project is getting there, slowly but surely... The garden has made great progress although a huge way to go yet for a finished space & we've been busy planning our upcoming wedding too! And of course continuing to build my garden design business here in Norfolk with the support of you lovely lot. I don't know about you but I'm very much in need of a break soon, it's been one hell of a last year.

I'm going to fast forward a little bit so you don't see every single tedious stage we've gone through with the garden but to show you some more recent progress and triumphs and how we got there.

I don't think I'll ever quite get over this morning view. It really is quite stunning here in #norfolk

Above shows the garden starting to develop a backbone of structure, #Teaselslandscapes helped us to set out the design with mild steel edging which has rusted beautifully.

To the left is the main path running down the length of the garden, turning at an angle and then leading to the end of the garden which is also known as the 'productive garden'.

We built our own timber vegetable beds that are now in situ (and have been extremely full this last year) and relocated the greenhouse and old garage frame:

August 2020 - newly installed veg beds, sparkling clean greenhouse & revamped garage frame

And started to build the garden design office.. (well David the fab builder did.. )

September 2020 - my design office was built using left over bricks from our extension (fabulous)

The garage frame has been transformed into a timber clad large workshop come shed. We're both extremely happy with it.

Anyway they are some behind the scenes photos from last year, I'll fast forward now to show you where we're at now give or take a few weeks:

We have a lawn. This photo was taken late spring as I'd just planted up some of the borders, it's since filled out beautifully!

The office is looking great (bar no doors on the front just yet..) I've sourced a gorgeous galvanised tank that we are going to transform into a simple water feature next to the office. Still waiting to gravel the entire end of the garden but can't quite push that yet. The thornless blackberry is now going crazy with new growth too & the fig has soo many figlets on it now!

The most recent photo of a couple of the borders planted up and romping away, we absolutely adore it. It's out little piece of peace whilst the rest of our house progresses and still lots to do in the garden yet. But it's all coming together rather nicely, don't you think?

Please do let me know your thoughts. I would love to know where you're at with your home and garden? Comment below!
