We’re still busy taking down the garden wall (you can read more about our latest efforts here). If you’re thinking it’s taking a ridiculous amount of time – you’re probably right. But in our defense, we’re only really working on it when the weather is good.
We’ve not been as lazy as it may seem though. As you all already know, we’re attempting to sort out as much of the garden as possible this year. Last week we already cut back the enormous buddleja bushes in our front garden.
I’m sure that they’ll be huge again by midsummer, but it’s definitely a huge improvement for now.
The only problem with cutting back the plants, is that it’s highlighted our rather sad looking fence.
Well, not any longer! This is our fence now.
What an amazing difference a bit of paint and a few hours of work can make. I wish all makeovers were as quick and easy as this!
I totally get that black fence paint isn’t for everyone, but we think the dark colour will be a good backdrop for the plants. What do you think of our fence colour?
