❤️This is a throw back to the little idea I had last year to try and build a little garden for me and my 4 year old son. My idea of our garden included colourful plants that would attract wildlife in to our dull city garden. I wanted a peaceful haven, A cut off from the outside world ☮️ I also wanted to have little veg plot to educate myself and my son a little more on how to grow our own and be a little more sustainable. I had no budget so everything had to be begged, borrowed or brought back to life from the reduced shelves in supermarkets or garden centre's!!🌱 I had very little money, but the first thing I did was buy a smallish green house. And then came the seeds...! Planting seeds with my son was so much fun😆 watching them grow and flourish in to edible food was even better🥀🍅🥔🥒 I was also lucky enough to find an old steel drum bbq in a local park. It had been dumped so I took it home and drilled a few holes in to it and planted it with new life. The fusica which is planted in there I inherited off my grandma and its one of my favourite along with her blue hydrangea 😊🌼🌷 From the second we got our first ripened tomatoe we were hooked and our guarding journey began!🌱🍎 Our garden today is full of colourful flowers, pots, recycled raised beds, fruit and veg and wildlife🍓🌶️🐞🕷️ The obsession has even taken over the house a bit too ✌️🌵 #throwback#mygarden#inthegardentoday#gardensofinstagram#recycledgarden#growyourown#sustainableliving#ilovemygarden#citygarden#stokeontrent#upcycle#bbq#greenhouse#growingwildandfree @lucievictoria87
🌿One last shot of our tunnel before the frost. Yeah, it was supposed to frost last week but we squeaked by some how. Now Friday looks like the day. We'll see. Either way it is getting chilly. The plants aren't really growing at this point. There's always the green house. It kind of eases us into the winter. When everything is dead and brown outside at least we can walk in there and see some green and get some sun on our faces. Swipe left for an inside pick of the tunnel.😘
P.S. My sign has been over taken by the vines! Can you see it peeking through?
