Spring is in the air where I live (with the occasional return to winter vibes with a gray and rainy day mixed in, of course). But the sunny days are getting longer and warmer, which makes me so eager to start exploring ideas for our new garden! It will be our first spring here, so it will be fun to look at the plants and trees and start dreaming about what we want to do with the space we have.
It’s not my house in the photo above, but it’s really cute, isn’t it? I love the whole vibe there, so I saved it in my inspiration folder. I’ll be sharing some posts about my own exterior and yard soon so you can see what we have to work with and of course I’ll be sharing some of our plans already!
If you were with me through the outer transformation (and all the drama, ups and downs!) of our side and our backyard in our last home, you probably remember how much I loved to create and watch these spaces come to life (see our courtyard and before and after photos here). You can also see photos of my old garden and house in my new book, A Lovely Life. This book will be released later this spring and offers inspiration for creating a beautiful life in every season!
We have similar dreams for our new house to add little gardens, doors and seating areas etc. like we did in our old house, but since this yard is much smaller to start with, it should be able to grow and reflect our vision more. quickly!
The impact of each change in a smaller property like the one we have now will be more apparent early on, which makes designing our yard even more exciting for me. Additionally we already have two porches/terraces as well as plans for a third so although the property itself is smaller than the last one there is plenty of space to work with. Like a lover of small garden spaces. I am excited to begin !
In the meantime, these photos give me all kinds of inspiration for spring and summer projects. Enjoy (and find links to lots more spring inspiration below).
