Lady Bug Says ... Sunshine Garden

Afternoon Ladies!
I decided to do a post that is a little different today. I have the day off work so have been lounging around in the garden soaking up the sun and admiring the garden. Now, my Mother will tell you that I am not a green fingered person, so I am very proud of my efforts!
When we moved into our house in November this is what we called our 'garden' or more commonly known as the mud pit!

7 months later this is what we have created! Now I cannot take all the credit, the Mr is responsible for shed building/deck laying/ flower bed construction/ lighting. But I did help with turfing and did alot of the planting.

Being a 'stick it in the ground and hope it grows' kinda person I am very proud of all the pretty growing things!

I grew lilies! From bulbs! and there are alive and pretty!

No idea what these are but thought they looked nice!

Hope you don't mind me sharing my little 'OMG I did that' moment with you all!


  1. Not at all! What an amazing difference you've made to it. I think it's harder to start with a totally blank canvas sometimes than make subtle changes to something that's already flourishing. You've done such a good job.

  2. wow what a nice little sun trap! Looks so nice!

  3. What an amazing job you've done. I find gardening so rewarding, I love to weed, prune or mow a bit then run upstairs to admire my handiwork.
    I recognise lillies and lupins but not sure what that pretty pink thing is.

  4. I think it looks so pretty and perfect for a home =) Isn't it nice when you accomplish something you had trouble believing you could do? I just love it.
    It is the perfect place to spend a day off, I think =)

  5. wow, well done! I wouldn't have a clue where to start with a garden! Nice decking xx

  6. Your garden is fab. Lovely place to sit outside in the sun.xx

  7. That's a gorgeous garden, you definitely should feel proud of it - well done!

  9. Wow, what a pretty garden. I'm terrible with identifying flowers but good at vegetables. You've done a great job in a short amount of time

  10. Holy crap that looks amazing!! I am happy you shared this with us, I am jealous and impressed!

  11. Wow, what a transformation!! You two have done so well, I love it! perfect garden.

  12. Oooh, check you! Such a pretty garden, it's hard to believe it used to look like the first picture! Lillies are my fave flower - they are so pretty! x
