Meandering Garden Diary: The First Tour

Last week I announced we had moved into our new home in Melbourne. We’re slowly settling in, and while doing so Felix and I made some time to go for a wander in our new garden.

I had said it was lovely. So lovely that it’s inspired me to take up gardening! Now I don’t consider my thumbs very green, and I’m already very busy with work and stuff. So my gardening will be small and my Garden Diary will be mostly pictures!

I haven’t started any gardening yet. But it’s early days – and I’d like to know where we started. So on that note, here is Morgan and Felix’s First Garden Tour!
