Ever since I've thoughtlessly committed our 'jungle' to an Open Garden(only for the villagers thank goodness) I've been obsessed with all things that may enhance whatever beauty could be lurking under the layers of neglect.
I've hit on a plan to cut some corners and use props.
In our very nomadic decade, when selling and buying houses was second nature to us, I've learnt that sometimes it is quicker to divert attention than to fix even a minor blip.
The smell of freshly brewed coffee,for example,makes people feel relaxed and instantly 'at home' in their surroundings just as the enticing aroma of baked cookies brings out the feeling of home comforts.
The tricks are endless and very effective,if I might say so myself after selling 12 houses in 16 years !!!!!
I suppose its understandable that I decided to apply those tried and tested methods to the looming event.
Wherever I go,whatever I read I'm compiling inspirational ideas in hope of using them in my garden to draw attention away from the sea of weeds that have yet to be tackled.
So here are some features I hope to replicate,modify and introduce at some point.
Yes, I'm aiming high.
Give me strength !
