Just a very quick interlude to show off some of the flowers springing into life around Wonderview. Over the nearly six years of owning this land, we’ve been steadily working on it, trying to turn it from a patch of scraggly grass, surrounded by acres of stunning natural forest and country fields, to a verdant, thriving, somewhat more refined garden, surrounded by acres of stunning natural forest and country fields. And we’re mostly succeeding (bar the still present scraggly grass, which is honestly the bane of our lives) but it’s definitely been slow going. So I am pretty proud of these tiny moments of floral life currently happening around the place.
This is the first year we’ve been able to grow flowers; in the past we were never here frequently enough or regularly enough to be able to give them the water and care they needed. It’s a learning curve! But a fun one.
Also, you can see we’ve got the outdoor furniture out, although cushions are still in storage most of the time. But we’re getting ready for summer up here and that is very exciting!
