A Garden Room of One’s Own

It’s at this time of year particularly, that I wish I had a garden room. Nothing as grand as a conservatory. Just a small corner tucked away, with plenty of light, warmed by the spring sunshine and sheltered from the unforgiving winds. Not to mention the April showers.

A cosy little reading nook where I could hide and snooze. Watch the birds. Admire the blossoming garden and dream of summer days.

It would definitely have somewhere comfy to sit (or lie more like), deep windowsills for my flourishing (I’m definitely dreaming here) plant collection, a little table for my book and drink, and a place to potter with trowels and earth.

A few ‘essentials’.

    Ohhh that looks so cosy and warm. It’s getting colder here in Melbourne as we approach winter, sitting outside in the garden for breakfast will soon be too cold. You have inspired me to bring my garden indoors:)
    Thank you Carole, keep up the great work!

    I would really like a garden room too, to give the illusion of being outside when really I have to be inside doing work. Love these ideas.

    Absolutely, it would be gorgeous! I love that first image and would happily cosy up there to relax and unwind. I’ve been enjoying watching the birds out of the window today – there’s a sudden hive of activity, as the blackbirds are very busy collecting nesting materials.

    I am dreaming about a garden of my own. I guess we all want to get back to nature.

    Our garden is only small, so we don’t really have a “bottom” bit. But I can’t wait to get back out there any set up my office on the outdoor table and have the radio on…. Wouldn’t mind that wicker and metal chair in the Cuckooland image to sit on either! 🙂

      Ooh I’m very envious Karen. I’d like a girly shed at the end of the garden too 🙂
