Inspiration..... Small Gardens and potted plants

Beautiful Small gravel garden with potted plants

So the world has got a little intense but as a hospital worker and mother my two main aims for the up coming months are to keep myself grounded and healthy and to protect my son from too much anxiety. But I also really am feeling the need to return to Moon to Moon to post some beautiful relaxing natural homes and gardens...... to create my own little pocket of the internet that is free from anxities.... I hope you will join me ;)
Potted plants for a small Natural garden

Todays post is inspired by my need to design my garden around a pesky (massive understatement) bamboo problem meaning grass is sadly out of the question........so remembering the beautiful gravel garden in the top photo a gravel based garden it is!! Im thinking gravel, potted plants, a compost heap and potentially a raised pond are the way forward for my tiny city garden, bringing in wildlife whilst remainng functional.... the ultimate place to chill....woo hoo!

What do you think?

I love the use of ferns to create a tropical effect in this small garden

Those are neat! I've been loving small gardens lately, especially container gardens. It's easy to move them around to take advantage of the light and shade, and you don't have to leave them behind if you move. And rocks make for such wonderful natural accents.

I love that. I plan to get my garden under control this year. We cannot keep grass in the back so this provides much inspiration. Stay safe.
