Renovation project - Gardening on a budget

Renovation project - Gardening on a budget
The sun is shining and Huelgoat is looking at its best and we are enjoying time with friends. This actually feels quite unusual as normally we never go out, we are usually working on the house but that is not the case at the moment I am actually sitting at friends houses and enjoying the opportunity to socialise.
But today I am going to make my garden look lovely. I am not a gardener in any sense so the fact that we have the terraces and the stone patio is ideal, but we do need some colour in it and I also have my window boxes.
We have bought a selection of plants from Lidl of all places, we have realised that plants tend to be quite expensive here in Brittany, but Lidl had one of their offers on and we bought three trays for only five Euros.

It’s at this point I realise just how many plants you actually get in a try. The 5 boxes are filled with a variety.
The camellia has a ring of daisies and every other pot I can find gets a selection of bedding plants.

It’s just a case now of waiting for my wisteria to grow, it has already started to bud, so I am not in the same panic as last year when I bought it and had been convinced someone had sold me a dead twig!

Let’s just hope the sun stays

  2. It's looking good. The wisteria here on the Bassin D'Arcachon has just gone into full bloom this week, so yours probably won't be long now 😊. Enjoy the sun 😊.

    1. thank you, the problem with living so far north, but it is still a lot sunnier than northern England where we are from originally :)
