Despite the terrible weather we have, we still like to try and make the most of the summer in our garden. We are lucky to have a large garden – we are on a corner plot, and have started making plans to get the garden ready for summer.
I love being outside and was so thrilled when Mummy put a water and sand table in the garden for me. I could play with it for hours in the sunshine (we just need more sunshine!) Mummy is also looking for a summer house for me, somewhere where I can still play outside, but have shelter for when it rains.
A garden gazebo would be good too, so Mummy could sit outside with me whilst I play in the shade, or (let’s be realistic) the rain!
For the garden itself, the jobs Mummy has to do are to edge the lawn, as the grass has grown into our flower borders and looks untidy. She would like them separate again and has seen some great, easy to use lawn edging which will do the job! Mummy then wants to plant some wild flower seeds in them. (The edging will also stop me stumbling into the flowers!)
We also need our yearly trim of the tree by the drive and a big holly bush we have in the back garden, they grow so quickly. Luckily my cousin and Grandad help us each year.
So here is our wish list for getting our garden ready for summer:
- Acorn Cottage for me. How cute is this little play house?
- Lawn edging . This looks very simple to use.
- A gazebo to protect us from the
sunrain 😉 Mummy has been browsing Pinterest – there are SO many amazing ideas.
- A new BBQ. A gas one, as Mummy is no good at all with lighting coals etc.
- A hedge cutter (for Grandad!) He would have to choose one as he knows far more about them than we do.
That is a pretty great list isn’t it? If we had our wish list we would be all set for summer. What would be on your wish list for getting the garden ready for summer?
