Sprucing the garden up


It’s been ideal weather for painting the garden furniture up. I have chosen Willow to paint the bench and the pergolas etc.but I have run out of paint. It’s impossible to get any more at the moment.

The next job I have planned is to Karcher the patios and spruce them up but the weather has changed and it is really cold here in Lincolnshire.

Willow is a lovely colour. You are getting the garden looking wonderful. Cold here today so much so I didn't even go out to do any gardening. Such a dramatic change from yesterday.
I love using the pressure washer but like homebird I look a bit splattered afterwards.

At the risk of being boring, I really like the willow colour - its calm and restful. Isn't it interesting how very different our gardens are from each other?

Beautiful garden, Marjorie! Everything looks immaculate. What a pity you couldn’t finish painting the bench seat, it’s a nice colour too. Love the ericas, look fab, lovely colour and spread too. All your pots are looking pristine. Lots of great spring colours! You’ve been very busy.

Gosh, Marjorie, if my paving looked as good as yours I would let the pressure washer have a year off! As soon as the weather warm up again I think there will be pressure washers splatters countrywide, I will be splattered that's for sure :-) Your garden looks lovely in the Spring sunshine, Marjorie, very inviting.
