What makes my garden special

So what makes my garden special?

When I look more closely at my garden I see what makes it magical…all these bits add up to a beautiful space and place to be. Not perfectly pristine and manicured and blooming but perfectly perfect as only nature can be.

Nature is pretty amazing isn’t it…. in all it’s forms.

Vibrant, vivacious and splashy


Dotty, red and teeny

what makes my garden special

Stylish, delicate and beginning


Wonderful, wishing and whimsical


Pretty, incredible and perfect


Artistic, nurturing and dedicated


Green, growing and giving.


I am so thankful for all this life that makes up my lovely (not perfect) perfect garden.

    And a great place just to sit and relax for a while. Has that ladybird gone wrong in the wash, all her spots are on her head?!

    Such a lovely post and I especially like the last photo. It reminds me that although my garden isn’t as I like it is still beautiful.

    Lovely pictures. I think if we all just slow down and look at some of the things around us that nature has provided it’s pretty damn special!

    It is so important to learn to love the space that you live in and your garden looks like it is full of interest and colours. Your little ladybird looks so unusual, it hardly has any spots – a very special one indeed x
