Daddy’s Garden


006Last week I spent a couple of days with my dad, on my own, child and husband free and it was bliss. My dad has recently undergone some surgery so I was keen to visit and ensure he was well. He lives a good four hours from us in a picturesque Hampshire village, which for my visit happened to be bathed in beautiful sunshine.

Once assured he was recovering well I was also keen to see the progress on the house he and his wife are having built. The plot is in the village and they lived in an unattractive 60’s flat roofed house on the site for some years before knocking it down at starting a fresh. What now stands in it’s place and is soon to be completed, is a marvelous modern and inspiring dwelling, I feel very excited for them both to have such an amazing new home which they’ve put so much of themselves into.

The plot had and still has a beautiful well established large garden, which I’m glad to say they are not in any way altering. It was wonderful to potter in the sunshine with my camera and snap away at the shoots and blooms. I can’t wait to return and stay in the new house over the summer, when the garden will still be offering an abundance of gems but for now here’s what I found last week..
