Down the end of my garden hidden out of sight by a large lavender bush is the little area you scan see below ..our secret garden.
This is absolutely one of my most favourite places to sit with a coffee in he quiet. I read or think or just close my eyes and be and the world of busy-ness feels far away.
my husband built this space over just one weekend and it was a complete triumph. You can see here how we went from magazine inspiration to completed project
Learning to love to cook is a fairly recent addition to my life and it has been enhanced by this little herb garden I created.
It is the one bit of our garden I take complete responsibility for and I just love it. The markers were simply made with stones and sharpies. When I come to replace them i shall use a clear varnish too. having a container like this has helped contain the herbs and the mint had to be removed it was running rampant. It now has it’s own little pot to play in!
