I am very lucky to live in a house with a decent size back and front outdoor spaces. Back in Gran Canaria, I would have to live in the countryside to have access to this green space, but here in London, almost every house has a garden. As you can see, I hardly have any plants going, just a few roses and lavender that have survived over the years, but this Summer, I am determined to learn how to take care of the garden. This whole thing is very challenging for me, as I don't have the knowledge, or the money to employ an expert, so I will have to do it on my own, with the help of my friends.
A visit to Charlene's house, has inspired me to create a wild garden, she has some tropical plants and very beautiful flowers in hers. With a very small budget, I have to get creative, my priority is to get rid of the grass, as it does affects me a lot, and cover it with gravel, any other suggestions? I will dig some beds around the edges for flowers and plants, and create a dining area, for dinners al fresco (when English weather allows). At this point I can only make small changes, but hopefully they will improve the space, and would make my life easier.
