A New Blank Canvas!!!

I have just moved to a new house, new garden and the garden is literally a blank canvas 1.2 acres!!!  I am now feeling a little bit overwhelmed by the whole experience!!!  When I first saw and fell in love with the garden and house, all the lawn was neatly mowed but now alot of it is like a meadow!!!  As the garden is so big I think I will leave some areas on the back hill wild and meadowy!  The only down side to this is all the seed heads will blow unto my new flower beds - interesting challenge.   The back garden backs onto a forest!!!

I still have to buy a lawn mower, the back is quite steep so I think a self propelled petrol mower will do the job!!! Ha ha says she with her fingers crossed!

I started to dig my first flower bed with my mum on Sunday and it was tough work, may have to look at a rotavator or a garden digging party, I will supply the wine beer and chinese takeaway!!!!  I have taken a lot of divisions and cuttings from my last garden and am dying to get them into the ground!!!!

I am excited and a bit nervous about the new challenge but hopefully as you watch this space you will see some colour appear.

Looking forward to seeing you all on the 6th!!!  Sorry I won't have plants to share this time but next time I will!!!!
