Garden Flowers

One of the nice things about renting a house is inheriting the gardening successes of previous tenants or the owners. Like these lovely flowers that are blooming right now.

Lovely pink rose

Flowers and berries!

Many birds come to visit our yard and at least one bee always seems to be hanging out somewhere, buzzing around lazily.

I wish our thumbs were greener but we were smart enough to request someone come in for semi-annual caretaking of the garden. It meant an extra £10 a month but is totally worth it to keep things in good condition, or better condition than we can maintain. I still have to mow the lawn, but it is only a small patch and not a big effort. And the front garden has no grass, so no mowing!
