The one major thing I miss about living back with my mum, apart from her obviously, is a garden. Recently I have started to fill the flat with plants and flowers, which is actually brightening my mood.
Most are from the reduced section in Homebase and they have flourished with some nutritious soil and we at least 70% less than the RRP - forever bargain hunting.
The pots on the kitchen windowsill are the cheapest pots I could find and painted with samples of pastel coloured paints. Possibly one of my favourite DIYs, I should have taken photos for a blog post. Even better the blue vase was only £2 in the Homebase clearance!
