Garden Highlights


Hooray for spring. The tulips are staring to bloom everywhere, and so before I get started with my Garden for this year, I wanted to share some highlights of the Garden, from last year.

White picket fence: I had always wanted to live in a house with white picket fence. I think it just goes and creates that “homely” feel.

Yellow picket fence: I loved the picket fence in my front yard so much, that I installed it on our backyard as well. I did this, to place flowerpots along the borders and grow flowers along it. I painted this fence yellow, because I love colours, and yellow is a very happy colour for me. Plus, it attracts butterflies, birds and bees, and they are good for the garden.

Bottles: Remember the centrepieces for our wedding? That’s right, the bottles! Since I had put so much time and effort into it, I didn’t feel like throwing them away after the wedding. Hence, I used them as decorative accessories in our front yard. It actually makes people stop and look at it for a while. I love it that people would stop and admire our hard work and effort.

Bird Houses: I love birds and bees and butterflies. I also love cute, pretty, colourful things. Every time we went to the country side, I couldn’t help buying these birdhouses. I have hung them on my back fence and I put some bird feed inside it. So far I have only seen a squirrel on it. Come on Birdies, these are for you!

Scarecrow: More like Fun-crow or cute-crow, there is absolutely nothing scary about it, but it makes the garden pretty.

Wild Flowers: I loved the look of the wildflower meadow when I went to Lake Distrcit the first time. This inspired me to grow my own wildflower garden.

Sunflowers: My favourite in the world! I hope my garden will always, always have sunflowers in them.
