Green Fingers?


Aloha Sprinklerinos,

I'm a homebird. I love to be in my house and think of it as my palace. I always feel safe and secure in it and spend hours mooching round websites looking at ways to improve my nest.

Something I have neglected for the past 3 years though is the garden. Matt cuts the grace but that's about it. We don't grow flowers, we don't paint fences, we don't build decking. It's really dismal.

Garden revamp

So, this year we're going into outdoors crackdown mode. I want to enjoy summer outside before I get rickets so we're revamping- on a shoestring! I can't bare to spend money on something so boring. With any luck, a bit of elbow grease and some borrowed tools is all we need.

Garden revamp

I let Baby Glitter come out with me whilst I wandered round deciding which things would be ripped out and where stuff would go and discovered that she LOVES being out in our garden. This has really made me want to make it a magical place for her. I have big plans!

Garden revamp


So, yep, that was a pretty mundane post but then life isn't always jaunts and excitement is it? Sometimes it's playing in the garden in your PJ's and wellies.

If you have garden tips or ideas, feel free to leave them below- I could do with the help!




Toodlepip!

  1. My mother is absolutely obsessed with creating a beautiful garden. Too bad for her nothing grows here in dry and hot California. It would be so amazing for your daughter to have a magical, stereotypical play area. Maybe one of those insanely realistic play houses. A castle? Oh well that's my suggestion.

  4. Lovely photos, as always! :) I agree that outside stuff is super boring but once you start adding special touches, it's not so bad. There's some really nice, colorful gardening gloves and flower pots available- I could definitely see you getting excited over that (I know I do). This year I'm taking baby steps and I've planted some wild flowers (hopefully they won't require much care- after all, they are "wild") and tomato plants. I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with your yard (er, I mean, garden, hehe).

  5. Darcy is so beautiful! Maybe you could have like a little vegetable patch and string christmas lights through trees to make it magical at night or have an outdoor seating place with candles and what not. Just a few cute ideas :D

  9. i think it'll be such an amazing experience for your family to do this together! i know Darcy is only two and making her do hard labor is wrong but there's just something about getting to dig up the dirt yourself and help plant flowers in your own home that just makes everybody's childhood a little better! haha you have such a cute family and i think you are going to do an amazing job with your home, Louise! I can definitely feel the warmth and love all around in your pictures.

  11. Darcy looks sooo cute Louise. I have a younger sister hehe. You should totally plant some flowers, I want to become a flourist when I am old and wrinkly, and pop a few slides and a swing set for Darcy :) + swings are always fun.

  12. Still a nice post!
    It always makes me feel happy to see Darcy's pictures on your blog or vlog :)

  13. Baby glitter looks adorable!!!!
    My advice for gardens is maybe avoid vegetable gardens - we've had one for a while now and after a few years the dirt loses all its nutrients and its hard to get stuff to grow.
    But definitely buy lots of colourful flowers and maybe a swing or a slide for Darcy :) Also maybe buy her a toy gardening set and a little patch to do so she feels like she helped :)
    Love your blogs

  14. Grow flowers! They're so easy to grow and do not need watering that much (because its generally wet in England anyway) and Darcy would love looking at them!

  15. A beautiful garden completes a home :) so nice having your own beautiful outdoor space to enjoy - without having to go anywhere.

  20. Would be so cute if Darcy would have her own playhouse. There are a few flowers for "beginners" which are easy to handle maybe you find some online.

  21. An old mirror to create an illusion of a secret garden, wind chimes, hidden fairies and her own watering can will make it a magical place for her :) x

    You're right, give it some elbow grease and youll get there xx

  23. I hope your little project goes well! Even just some potted plants on a patio can make your outside space so much more welcoming and calming. Try ferns and bamboo to get different textures for Darcy :)

  25. First off, Darcy is like a little angel - her skin is like porcelin & her eyes are so green :D beautiful

    You & Darcy can paint little plant pots as a fun little activity to do :)
    At B&Q they have some lovely outdoors patio sets for summer time :)
    plus they have this gorgeous pink, purple & mint colour shed - that is suitable for Darcy as a playhouse for her :) i swear i love it hehe :)
    Or or when she is older, a swing or play circuit thing you see in Argos catalogues sometimes :) i could go on but i'm sure you'll find inspiration & imagination to create a lovely garden :)

  27. You should think about giving your fence a nice coat of paint - that'll spruce up your garden very quickly (and it's not too expensive!). Since you love pastels so much, how about a pastel green? That'll look lovely! Painting a fence is a quick and easy way to spruce up any space :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. Get yourself a trampoline , Darcy will love it, i'm 15 and i still get exited about jumping on it :P

    ReplyDelete
  29. This is so cute. My one year old already stamps her feet when it is time to come in from the garden, she loves the grass, her sandpit, water table and slide.

    Here is a simple idea for hanging bird feeders, which I think would look pretty hanging from your trees. Darcy would have fun making them and watching the birds come to feed. Be warned Lard is messy and smelly so you can use an alternative.

    http://evans-crittens.blogspot.co.uk/2012/11/hanging-bird-cake-feeders-and-pinecone.html

    Also, I apologise for the photo layout in the post- I wrote it before I discovered Collage!

    I can also see you and Darcy planting sunflower seeds and watching your sunflowers grow. :-)

    Does Darcy have her own little table? If not plastic ones are only a few pound and can be dressed up with a table cloth, or paint an Ikea one with outdoor paint. I know how you love your jam jars in the Summer. My older girls always have a jar of wild flowers (OK weeds!) such as daisies on their little table and lay their tea set, it looks so pretty.

    Or using old pretty fabric, you could make a cute den for Darcy.

    Enjoy the sun!

    love

  58. I can definitely relate to you with this post - we've been in our house 2 years now and the garden is so boring to look at - we have grass, which, like you, my OH keeps on top of, but thats it. We have a few measly daffodils at the back that have reared their heads, that must have been from the previous occupiers, but thats as much colour as your gonna get. We really aren't avid gardeners but I want colour and prettiness, but like you I hate spending money on stuff for the garden (don't you think pots and plants are so expensive?!). My little tip what I'm about to do this weekend (and its good if you're garden shy) - any soil that you really can't be bothered to be weeding every other week throughout the summer - I'm gonna get a special 'blanket' as I like to call it, throw it over the soil (to stop the weeds growing through), get a few bags of white pebbles and scatter them where the soil was. I've found some rather large cheap 99p pots (from B&M) and I'm gonna plant some seeds in them, which will hopefully flourish into brightly coloured flowers (or not, if you're like me and forget to water them) and then space these pots out across the length of my pebbles. Ok, that was a bit long-winded but hope it makes sense! Also keep your eye out for those brightly coloured tin flower hanging pots that you can hang over your fence, they are really cheap and easy to do and add instant colour to your garden :-) x

    I still live with my parents and my garden has been exactly the same, my dad cuts and weeds it but that's about it. Every year we say we're going to plant some more flowers and have a little vegetable patch. One day we will get around to it!

    Could you imagine Baby Glitter picking raspberries and tomatoes? :D

  63. Aww Louise, your such a brilliant mum! Darcy is growing so big as well.

    Something I always love is having a vegetable patch, I know it sounds old fashioned and boring... but there is honestly nothing nicer than growing lettuce/potato then eating it for dinner! Even start small, strawberry plants, herbs and peas?

  70. Big tip from a new gardener: make sure to check whether flowers etc you are planting are annuals, semi-annuals etc. that way you'll know if they'll come up automatically on their own or not. I made the mistake of buying tulips (which are my favorite flower) when i hardly had any gardening experience and then found out they only bloom once a year after which i have to depot them and freeze the bulbs for a year and then replant them next spring - too much hassle!

    ReplyDelete
  71. I love seeing cute pics of Darcy, her eyes are just stunning :) A good tip for the garden is to get some candles in a bamboo holder and plunge them into the grass and light them in the evening, they look so pretty and brighten up any garden. You can also put some jam jar candles on a sturdy string and hang them from tree to tree or fence to tree or anywhere and you could get Darcy to decorate the jam jars too :) Love your blog as always Louise :)

  73. It's the perfect time for dafodills a small patch of them brightens up any garden and they are so easy to get hold of a bag of bulbs and simply plant them. They grow quickly and are a great hands on thing for toddlers too!
    Also (perhaps more grown up) a rose arch or arch of any climbing flower variety roses are especially pretty though and with a weave of outdoor fairy lights through them would look so enchanted and make your garden a little secret one for Darcy to play in.
    Planting is a fun thing to do in the summer with kiddies and to 'lousieify' it you could collect more unique pots for planting e.g. jam jars, watering cans, or old tin cans.
    Not sure on the size of your garden but maybe a little summer house/wooden gazeebo? You can get small ones quite cheaply from eBay etc. and you can paint them pretty cream/pastel colours for a lovely spring/summer effect.
    You can pick up mini greenhouses too made of a small metal frame covered with a plastic coat to create the glass effect, these are great for little ones as you can plant small vegetables e.g. tomatoes instead of creating a whole vegetable patch which could be too ambitious for a budding gardener :) (budding hehe get it?)
    There are just a few ideas for you! I hope you enjoy them :) xx

  76. When I was little my mum made me a "fairy garden" it was just a few bricks layed down as pavers in the corner of our yard under some trees and we got lots of sparkly things to hang up and some fairy decorations, I loved it for the longest time!

    ReplyDelete
  77. Poundland sell seeds, you can't get more shoestring than than really. A great idea for doing things with Darcy is to grow your own herbs and vegetables. Mint is really easy to grow and smells lovely. You could have a go at decorating some ceramic pots or use old wellys as planters.

    ReplyDelete

  79. That's so exciting. My mom grows loads of stuff and even has a little greenhouse.

    I always used to go to my grandma and pluck strawberries and raspberries. Help with taking down apples and pears and me and my sister used to bring home a plastic jar full of cherries. We used to eat loads of fruit which is very healthy!

    At my moms we always pluck carrots and potatoes for lunchtime. And salad, tomatoes and cucumber. It's fun to grow your own stuff, and great for the environment too 'cause you don't have to buy stuff that's been shipped/driven to the store.

    Have fun in the garden!
    Wish I had one!

  108. My husband and I started our little garden by buying some cheap terracotta pots from the Eco Store (a second hand warehouse kind of place in New Zealand) and filled them with potting mix and planted flowers and veges in them which really got the garden started before we tackled digging over the actual ground and planting. We also bought lots of $1 plants from the clearance section of our local nursery which really brought the price down. Every few weeks I pop in and buy a couple of super cheap plants to add to the garden. Just a few ideas.... :)

    ReplyDelete
  109. Your photos are so gorgeous Louise! As is Darcy of course haha. I've always wanted a really nice garden etc. but I'm just not creatively that way inclined, perhaps when I have my own place it'll be a bit easier. Good luck with your garden! :)

  116. I haven't read through all the comments and all. So sorry if anyone suggested this already. But you should get her a playhouse if you got the space. We moved into a big house when I was 4, and it had a playhouse already in the garden which the dad of the family who lived here before built himself. I spent a lot of time in there! And now that I'm a tad bit too old for it, it works good as a shed to store summer things over winter (which also works when she uses it, since you're not really in there when it's snowy)! :)

  117. A secure, Homemade swing, not those overpriced climbing frames, unless you want, but you did say you dont want to spend lots of money on a "Boring garden" Maybe like an old car Tyre, maybe clean it for darcy if its abit grubby and attach on to a branch with some rope or even strong plastic wire and always supervise her, ahaha Im not a mum dont worry im not telling you what to do lol :) see Youuu
