Easy Ways to Brighten Your Garden this Spring

The weather is turning and like animals coming out from hibernation I’ve noticed my neighbours out in their gardens, starting to do the jobs they’ve been putting off and I am amongst them!

This year it looks like far more of the gardening will be falling on my shoulders so I have been eager to find a few things to make my life easier.

Our Child Friendly Water Feature

The one thing that I have always felt has been missing from our garden is a water feature. But with L I have to be careful over what I pick. It has to be a child friendly water feature. I have to have confidence it that. Of course I turned to Primrose, with such a wide range of stock they have never let me down.

We went for the Perth Square 4 Tier Solar Water Feature and Herb Planter by Solaray. At 42 x 39 cm it was big enough to make a statement in the garden but as it is currently on offer at £79.99 doesn’t break the bank.

As soon as his lovely Owl Bird Feeder arrived we had to go and fill it up to give the birds their tea. The feeder is best filled with peanuts or sunflower hearts, but all we had in the house was a mixed bird seed and L had decided the birds needed their tea right that second! Obviously there was a bit of spillage but it holds the mixed seed well.
