Our new garden {The Ordinary Moments 15} #10

We have been in our new house for over a month now and we really do feel settled, it’s amazing how quickly it has become ‘home’ I think that this is definitely in part to how quickly Arthur has settled in!

There are many things I love about our new house, but what I love most of all is our new garden!

In our old house we had no garden as such, in that the whole area was open, nothing fenced off.  There were only about 6 houses along the path but it meant that cars would come up and down.  This meant I could never fully relax with Arthur being out there once he could walk.  We really enjoyed being outside don’t get me wrong but as Arthur has got older it became a lot less practical!

In our new house, our garden is our own!  We are fenced in and so it’s really safe for Arthur!  We are all loving this space that he can run around and explore independently!

We have this lovely big tree which gives shade in the garden all day!  This is of course a huge bonus for us as without this there are definitely times of day where it’s just too hot to be outside!  This tree means he can always be out there any time of day!
There’s a lovely swing on there, and for when he’s a bit bigger a tree house.

The tree house.  Both of Arthur’s Grandads are VERY excited about this!  What is there right now is very basic and not really that safe!  I think they both have grand ideas about what they want to make it into!!!!

The branches of the tree mean that it really is perfect for a tree  house, they all go out at 90 degrees and then up 90 degrees again.  They’ve almost made a room themselves!!

We also have a couple of old tree stumps dotted around the garden that Arthur loves climbing up on to!

Growing in our garden we have a local tree called a Jamalack.  The fruit are kind of a mix between an apple and pear.
We’ve just planted chillis and our gardener has very kindly given us a lemon tree with fruit already on (here lemons are more like limes but smaller again and perfectly round they are good!) and also a little tiny grapefruit tree although that one is a long way of fruiting unfortunately!!
He has also promised us some banana plants yum yum!!

We are all really loving our new garden, it’s amazing how something so ordinary can make such a huge difference!!  We are spending more and more time outside! The paddling pool is getting more use then ever!  We even eat all our meals outside now as we have our dining table out on the veranda!

Basically, we love our new garden!!

  1. Oh how lovely to have a garden like that and that tree is just made for a treehouse – I hope the grandpas come up with something truly amazing!

  2. I think it’s so important that kids have a safe outside space that they can play in. I’m trying to find a way of getting a swing into our little garden and a tree house…my boys would love one to play in and I know my husband would love designing and building one! One day! Glad to hear you’re loving your new space.

  3. Your garden looks like the perfect place to get out and enjoy the beautifully warm weather. Arthur looks like he really likes his new play space and can’t wait to get big enough to build a better tree house with his granddads. I bet eating outdoors on the veranda each night is really relaxing. Thanks for linking up with Country Kids.

  4. It’s so brilliant to have a safe garden isn’t it? The first thing we did when we moved in to our new house was fence off an area of the garden. Our previous house didn’t have an enclosed area, so I can completely relate the stress of a walking toddler trying to escape! It’s so great to be able to let them run around independently 🙂 #CountryKids

    • It really does make the world of difference!!!
      Good idea to fence an area off yourself!!
      Glad you can relate haha it is definitely stressful haha! Xx

    • Thank you 🙂 it is really nice to be able to grow stuff like that here!!! The tree house is definitely exciting 🙂 xx

  5. A garden really does make a house a home. We miss being able to have our patio doors open during the winter months when it is cold because it feels like we’ve lost a whole room. Tin Box Dog and Tot love being able to roam free with the grass between their toes. Thank goodness summer is on its way! X #CountryKids
