My Little Garden

Hello everyone, I told one of my followers (Vera), that I would post some photos of my little garden. It is being worked on right now, to get it to the planting stage. Last year my yard was re landscaped or regraded ( I didn’t think they did a good job). They also put in a tall fence. They planted grass on about half of my yard, I asked them to remove it last year as I don’t want to cut grass every week (re: buy a lawn mower for 2.5 to 3 meters of grass, no thanks). I kept all of my concrete sidewalk blocks so I had to put back 2 and a half rows of blocks in the last 2 weeks (my brother helped me). I still have a few edging blocks to install, but that won’t  take long. Next week I will get some organic fertilizer or compost, to get the garden up to growing standard. I will also ad some peat moss. My yard is very small, only about 12 x 15 feet. It will keep me busy.

  Well now you know what my little garden looks like. The perennials are coming up and also some weeds that I need to remove. but otherwise the garden is starting to look like a garden, rather than a construction site. By for now.


  1. The header photo is gorgeous Horst! Your garden is lovely!

  2. A little garden can give you a lot of satisfaction and pleasure.

  3. This is a garden that would suit me fine.

  4. Hard work, but very rewarding in the end.

  5. How nice, it looks like a peaceful garden and will look even lovelier later. You sure have a green thumb!

  6. Oh That garden will look lovely when finished Horst Look forward to seeing the finished project love to see it.
    Your header is a dream so very pretty. Enjoy your week.
    Best Wishes Sheila

  7. Spring is finally here ... lovely, isn't it? Just came back from Europe ... they are about a month ahead of us, maybe more ... you wouldn't believe the yellow rapeseed fields i saw and the wheat stands high, still green though ... be well. eh? Nice to hear from you, Horst. Love, cat.

  8. I used to have a garden of a similar size, and it was very quaint and sweet once I got it sorted out. I look forward to seeing how your new garden grows over time, and to be quite honest with you, I would not mind having something similar here....somewhere I can sit without having chickens, geese, and dogs, romping around me!

  9. i think it will look very nice when you are finished:)You arew soo lucky to have your little spot you can grow what you like and sit there in peaceful times and enjoy it :)Nice to see your blog agaain Horst :)

  10. Your garden is looking great Horst! I think it can be very satisfying to see a "non-garden" develop from that status stage by stage to become whole new world of garden :) And gardens are so important to our wildlife too. It will be interesting to see what is attracted to your garden...besides yourself of course!

  11. So nice to see your little gardenplace :) I think it will turn out just great!

    and Thankyou for your allways so kindly comments on my blog :D

    Επίσης είδα όλες τις φωτογραφίες σου από τους κήπους. Τι όμορφες φωτογραφίες με την καινούργια σου φωτογραφική!!!
