The sun is out, the temperatures are going up and winter is definitely over. I know I usually write about all things related to interiors, but like many people, whether in the countryside or in the city, when the sun comes out, I start dreaming about having a beautiful garden, so I thought I should make an exception. Besides, in a way or gardens are an extension of our homes – even if they’re (especially in my case) not half as well kept. Anyway, I know we are relatively spoilt with many parks and large green areas, but it would nonetheless be rather nice to have my own little oasis. There is, however, a major flaw in my thinking: as far as gardening is concerned, I’m totally inept. I don’t have a green thumb, having to pull out weeds in my parents’ vegetable garden as a child has scarred me for life and I have the attention span of a fruit fly. None of these things help when it comes to establishing a lovely garden over time. But there might be a way to achieve something that comes at least close to my ideal outdoor space.
