The Secret Garden

When we looked around this house we saw it once at night time and once in daylight. There is an area behind the conifers at the bottom that is an overgrown mess. We had no idea even in daylight that is was anything but mud and brambles. Upon moving in and exploring the garden (when it wasn't snowing) we still had no idea what was really underneath it til this past weekend. We saw what looked like piles of bricks and some pebbles in a pattern. We thought maybe there were a couple of raised beds. We weren't expecting what we found - a path was uncovered, leading round some shaped beds. Quite exciting! We are looking forward to attempting to restore the area!

On another note, I am amazed by the garden birds we get here and we are enjoying identifying them! Thank you Grandma and Grandpa for the booklet. We also just got a new wildlife book to help us too. :)

  1. That is so exciting, Laura. We moved to our last house because of the garden - the house was probably too small. But I loved getting to know that garden, and uncover everything in it. I can smell that damp earthy fragrance coming right out of my screen. xx

  4. Thank you all. It's so much fun - we found tiles and a whole load of rubble this weekend just gone. And more marble slabs. Very interesting to unearth what lies beneath! :) xx
