I just love the summer, don’t you?
I have slowly been having a sort out in the garden as many things have lost their colour or rotted, the bin was full last week! The tulips are looking great, many spread about all round the garden, how clever of me, I did not even know I had done that LOL.
I also got round to painting the gate, I think I have had the paint sitting in a cupboard for about two years, I don’t like to rush! I am pleased with the grey colour though, I just need something bright and colourful to hang on it now.
I got these three crates during the winter so gave them a coat of paint while I was in the mood and the paint was out. I could sit down and do these so that was better for my back. I brightened them up by doing the insides pink. The plan for them is, one for all my camera accessories for taking flat-lay pictures, one for painting stuff for when I am away in the camper and no plans yet for the third one.
I do need to touch up the grey at the top of one of them, I get a bit impatient waiting for the paint to dry.
I can feel a trip to the garden centre coming on as need to fill some pots so they are all looking nice and colourful.
What are your favourite flowers? Mine is freesia’s, roses, carnations and lilies.

    I agree, I’m loving the grey look in the garden and in the house this year.

    Beautiful Karen! I especially like the grey/pink crates and the gorgeous gate. It all looks so fresh uplifting. It’s amazing what a bit of paint and a bunch of ingenuity can do😀
