• Choosing a tree that is suitable for an urban garden

    If you have a garden that is big enough, it really is worth considering planting a tree or two. Doing so will enhance your garden as well as help the planet. But, you need to make sure that you buy the right kind. You wouldn’t want to for example plant a weeping willow in a small garden. A tree-like that has a huge root system that seeks out water. So, if you plant it within 50 foot of a drain or water main the chances are the roots will invade and break the pipe. An issue like that would cost thousands to sort out. To help you to avoid making a…

  • Garden furniture – dreaming of summer

    The cold weather is still here so kids spend a lot of time indoors and that can feel quite crowded sometimes, Toys everywhere and a lot of havoc…This is why I love the warmer weather when kids can run freely through the garden and spend a lot more time outdoors.  Spring is coming though – I like to think so, at least. Dreaming of it, craving for it, I decided to start thinking about how to arrange my outdoor space to enjoy it for pleasant moments of relaxation under the blue sky. My girls loving spending time outside too. They like spending time in our garden – despite the fact…

  • Enjoying Outdoors

    I am so happy that my daughters get to spend so much time outside and so close to their grandparents. A couple of days ago my mother was cutting the grass in the garden and my two were all over her! They loved to help their grandmother, touch the grass and smell its freshness of course.

These days she acts more like a little lady.…

    Spring is in my garden

    Spring is here now. Cold days , warm days , hot days..they alternate and I never know how should i dress myself or the girls. There are days when I am scared to take the girls out because I don’t want them to catch a cold again. Last time was pretty bad so don’t want the bad times to comeback. We had some really beautiful days when daddy was here though. Days when we went out to the BIG PARK ( you will hear about it soon ) and days when we just sat in the garden and watched the bees flying around and  pollinating the flowers. It’s what I see when…
