How Does Your Garden Grow? - Week 23

This weekend we have focused on our abandoned front garden.

We have had so many jobs to do in the back it really had been neglected! Therefore we had enormous weeds They were getting so big we were getting quite embarrassed by it!

On Sunday the hubby tacked the weeds and has done a great job! We now have cleared flower beds ready to fill with bedding plants!

We have a willow in the front which is due a drastic trim at the end of the year. When I saw how curious the children were around it I grabs the secateurs and cut them a little door way so that they can play underneath it.

This is how our garden has grown this week...

Helping Daddy cut the grass
This is a plant that we were given. We are not too sure what
it is but think it may be a Lily.
Our mint is thriving after a harsh trim last year.
As the Elderflower is blooming I took some time harvesting flowers
and made some delicious cordial.
The children's Willow den.
We have buds coming on the Hydrangea.
The pretty purple Geraniums are starting to open.
They have been covered in pretty bees.
Next week my How Does Your Garden Grow will not be focusing on our garden. Tomorrow we are going to the Gardeners World Live show so I will be sharing our day and plenty of photographs of the displays!

As always I am sharing how our garden has grown with Mammasaurus - How Does Your Garden Grow?
