Eye Spy.... something beautiful in my backyard

This weeks theme is Eye Spy something beautiful in my backyard

So this is my new backyard..... it's certainly not everyone's idea of a beautiful backyard, but to me, it's absolutely perfect.

When I was looking for houses, it was extremely difficult to find one with a tiny no maintenance garden. This is just about the ultimate low maintenance garden - some pavers, and a patch of dirt with a few weeds growing through.

As I can't garden myself, this eliminates the need for me to rely on anyone else for help, which certainly takes a load off my shoulders...... and leaves more time for crafting!

For more Eye Spy backyard beauties, head on over to Bug and Pop.

Oh, this made me smile!! Beauty is indeed in the eye of the beholder.
I would cry if I had no tropical, out-of-control jungle surrounding me, but you are so happy with the potential a no-garden offers. (They are enomous time-consumers I will admit.)
Oh happy, happy days for you Cam and your craft-friendly new garden!!
Love this post :)

oh love tiny spaces...and low maintence would be lovely...we need a ride-on to get around ours...
but i can see that you do need a dab of colour some coloured gravel on that dirt (lots of black plastic down first) so the weeds don't grow throw...and a couple of "statement"pots in funky curlypop colours...a couple of comfy chairs and wow!!! your done...

Ooh, I like the mosaic idea. Or... you could dig it all out and have a REALLY BIG fishpond! How fun would it be to have a pond full of big goldfish right on your doorstep instead of a lawn?

Whatever you do with it, have fun!!

mmm, my kind of garden too. I have very similar grass- until puppy started digging in it, now it is holes. But very easy to maintain, and water saving too!

I also like low maintenance but something that I can do something with every now and then when I am in the mood for planting. I planted some daisies a couple of months ago - still alive - very good.

When it comes to yards, bigger certainly does not mean better, does it! Nice to meet you.

Warm wishes...

oh, that's crying out for one day having a little fountain, loose white stones covering the ground, and a couple of french style chairs with a little table, for you to sit while you enjoy a tea break from crafting ;)

one day... for the time being it's perfect!
