the buds of spring at home...

Our Garden, or lack there of is only new. We started with a blank canvas about 5 months ago when we moved into our first ever brand new home. We have been planning and thinking and planning on how we will lay out the landscape to feature all the thing we desire for our growing little family.

As you have read, the list was, and still is long, but we are working to the time we have spare, & of course to a budget...

We have a few trees & shrubs planted already to try to get some greenery around us & to help with the general layout. It's trickier than you may think.

One of my most favourite trees that we have already planted is the Forest Pansy or Cercis canadensis. It is stunning against all the green of the gum trees & bushland that surrounds us, and I have been eagerly watching it's growth as the months have past and I would love to show you it's beauty so far...

If you like what you see, check out more about it here or over at this wonderful blog I just stumbled upon.

These images are of one of ours, we have 2 planted as feature plants beside some steps up to the higher side of the garden.

Aren't you just loving it??? I think it is my current favourite to date.
Watch this space & I will keep you updated with it's visual beauty!

Grab yourself a cuppa *smile*
