The Garden of My Dreams ♥

These days I always seem to spend my time wandering around gardens - whether it be my own, my parents or local gardens open to the public. My love of flowers and nature always has me wanting to get out and about, discovering new beauty spots and pretty plants and flowers to photograph.

I think it's so important to get some fresh air every day, especially for the little ones and as I'm now a mother of two very active and playful little boys, I think having a lovely outdoor space for them to enjoy is so important.

We currently live in a rented house with a pebble covered garden - not exactly ideal for little ones or very comfortable for sitting out in during the summer months, hence why I always prefer to go out to my parents huge garden on sunny days, it's beautiful out there and is very close to how I would envision my dream garden to be - very cottage inspired, full of flowers and lots of places to explore.

I've spoken on the blog before about how I'd love for us to grow our own fruit and vegetables as a family, so a greenhouse would be a key element in my dream garden. I'd also love a cosy seating area with a veranda on top, possibly to have wisteria growing on as I think that's such a beautiful flower and love how it hands down.

Although I would love some neat lawn in my dream garden too, I've also envision having a wildflower meadow of sorts too - perfect for me to gaze at and a perfect photo opportunity spot too. I think some quality landscape design would really help me create my vision.

I like gardens with a bit of chaos to them and love seeing a carpet of wild flowers with splashes of different colours in flowerbeds. My dream garden would have lots of poppies, giant daisies, lavender, crocuses, daffodils and hyacinths, all of which make for perfect photo opportunities in the different seasons, as well as being pretty to look at too.

So those are the things that would feature in the garden of my dreams. I hope one day when we have a house of our own that we can make all these things a reality and have an outdoor space that we can all enjoy.
