Our first year in the garden was rewarding beyond belief. 2018 was the year of the heatwave, creating the kitchen garden, a gorgeous glut of courgettes and vases filled with flowers from the garden.
A spark has been ignited in both Andrew and I, to continue the garden transformation, grow more food and focus on the idea of creating a sustainable do it yourself lifestyle around us, incorporating our new found loves of sewing and even more DIY renovation projects.
Also new for 2019 is a shop to sell handmade products and to share the spotlight on artisans from around Scotland with the same ethos.

Hello! My name is Diana, welcome to my garden!
I’ve always wanted a little green patch to call my own, somewhere to test out my green finger abilities or lack there of; a place to grow my own veggies that would eventually end up on the dinner table, and a space to grow beautiful flowers.
My husband Andrew is my gardening partner in crime. He really digs all types of hard landscaping (excuse the pun) oh and bonfires. You can expect to see him feature in posts every now and then too!
After living in rental properties for the last few years, we found a house we wanted to call home in May 2017. With the dream home came 2 overwhelming acres of garden; a woodland area, kitchen garden, established trees, rockeries and in autumn 4, 635 728 fallen leaves! Overwhelmed would be an understatement.
Our first summer in our new home was mostly spent making a dent in the longer than my arm list of interior restoration works required of an almost 240 year home. Fast forward to January 2018, and the only project Andrew and I want to get stuck in to this year is, you guessed it, the garden! So I thought, why not record the journey in a blog.
The blog will be a space to share the little and large projects, successes and likely failures and what we learn along the way. I’ll also be blogging about some of my other loves cooking, photography and lots of DIY. I am by no means a writer but do hope you enjoy what you read!
