My life in a nutshell. Mostly mildly interesting waffling about my husband, my work, our new house and the endless joy of DIY whether we want to or not.

Garden looking good
I promised some pictures and since the sun decided to shine almost all day today even though they said it wouldnt i went out and took some pictures.
This one is of the front side of the new deck with roses and dahlias. I love my pots this year, Zinnias in a dark pink and mums double petunias. Lovely!
This is our vegetable garden showing how well it is doing at the moment with house and new deck
We are growing runner beans along those poles since we didn't manage to fill the bed with flowers i thought it could be nice with some climbing plant and decided on runner beans and some lilac French beans that really have a nice deep lilac coloured flower. The beans themselves are deep lilac but turn green after boiling.
This is our new project along the hedge towards our street. Just a shady spot for various shade lovers. Plan is to do a little wooden pier instead of a grass walkway between the house and hedge. I got a picture in my head you see where ferns and grasses grow over the boards and there are larger bushes to make it a bit like a mini woodland. Am not sure what to do closest to the house though, it has to be something that can manage without extra water so we don't need to water close to the house
