A Modern and Mediterranean garden

New look garden 3

Tilly our Cockapoo, has certainly made her mark in our garden. The lawn laid in the autumn looks very dog tired, so a new approach was needed.
All the cottage style plants have been relocated to the front garden and a modern, mediterranean feel with simple planting of dog friendly herbs are the way forward.

The greenhouse has been obscured by a black moroccan style screen, I am loving the patterns created in the shadow.

The apples trees have been replaced by an single olive tree and the lawn will be replaced next week with dog friendly artificial grass.

All the leaves are brown

autumn-leaf-dscl-resizedThe way I look at Autumn has changed as I have got older. When I was younger it signalled the end of the summer and back to school, but now I see it through different eyes. Not just the fading of summer flowers, plants dying back and falling leaves, but as a most beautiful season with it’s own special charm.img_5139img_5134

Although my love of Autumn is a quite recent, collecting conkers has always been a big thing with me – I can not walk past a conker on the ground without picking it up.originalphoto-465464040-512128originalphoto-465464427-079369
