Summer Garden Wishlist.

With summer just around the corner, I think it's about time that I start making some sort of plan for our overly messy garden! We moved to this house in November, and as I've mentioned before, the house needs a lot of work doing to it, I'm still not even a quarter of a way through the work that needs doing to it yet!

As the weather was colder back then, I didn't even think about the garden, however now we've had a few days of nice sunshine recently, it got me thinking about all the memories we will once have from this garden, but just like the house, the garden needs a lot of work doing to it too!

First, there are about four fence panels when there should be about 17 (six either side of my garden and three at the back!), one of my neighbours has a see-through thin wire fence up, it's like something you see on a building site and something that doesn't separate the privacy of the two gardens at all!

Then there's the broken and potentially unsafe patio, I'm not sure who laid it prior to us living here, but I'm either guessing they didn't know what they were doing, or it's become in such a state over the years. Then there's a big massive dip where a pond once laid apparently, it's not been filled in properly, that's for sure, I can imagine it is quite an expensive and time-consuming job - let's forget about that for now!

What I do need to think of though, is the garden I have, so with help from family and friends, we've been slowly and tiredly been sorting out as much as the garden as we can, there are bushes and over growing grass everywhere, there are weeds coming through the pavement, and out of control rose bushes (with no roses!).

To keep my motivation going, I've left my younger brother and his friend outside, so I could come in and write this post, writing is a safe haven, and a place where I can escape, it's also a great place for me to do a wish list too, isn't it?

Whilst loads of you have had a BBQ this year already, we've had BBQ type food, only it was oven cooked as we have no BBQ, so a nice little BBQ, like the one featured above for a great price of £39 from Asda, would be brilliant! I also need that picnic basket in my life, just because it's pretty and white and would be great to hold our garden picnic food in!

I couldn't decide between the three colour choices of the jugs and cups available to buy from, so I may just need them all in my life at some point! Well, you do get more thirsty in the summer, don't you!? Searching for garden floodlights wasn't that hard at all, I thought I wouldn't know what I was looking for, but I found one at a brilliant price, it's just for that extra bit of security, to make me feel safer!

Last but not least, the lean over garden/sun parasol, I've wanted one ever since my big brother Paul purchased his about two years ago! Only me and Spud was in a flat back then, and of course, had no use for one! Now we have our very own garden, it's the perfect excuse is it not!?

What's on your wishlist for a perfect summer garden?
