This weeks How Does Your Garden Grow photos were taken in my mothers garden at the weekend. It’s one of my favourite places to take photos because it’s always changing, full of such diversity of plants and is like my mum. You know that old saying about dogs looking like their owners? It’s a bit like that only more of a reflection of my mum and her loves. The vintage pots, the country garden vibe, it’s hard to explain but her garden is like her in garden form. I really hope that one day I have a garden that reflects me (or maybe the mud-fest of building mayhem reflects me nicely!?) 

Do you know someone who’s garden reflects them as a person perfectly? Does yours?

Just outside my mums front door is this seat / table arrangement. I love how there's always something different on here to see

Outside the summerhouse stand various succulents in coloured ceramic pots. The colour really pops out against the cream of the walls

More succulents, that plant pot on the right seems really familiar - maybe one my mum has had for many years?
