10 creative ideas on how to decorate your garden, by recycling.

Summer is the most celebrated season, because summer it is more associated with life, birth and rebirth when plants blossom, and animal life reassumes activity and nature feels alive again. We are now halfway through summer and then autumn will come, to refresh us with its crisp air and dreamy nature.

All seasons are magnificent but autumn is the most wonderful season of all. The temperature is just perfect, streets turn into colourful pictures as people drive to work, and the leaves into a melancholic and romantic reminder of another season gone by. What do I think when I hear the word autumn? I think of crisp refreshing air, mountains full of warm colours and people walking on a sea of leaves. Trees don’t hold hands anymore but seem to march in a melancholic solitude when we drive past them. Leaves change from green to orange, and from red to yellow. It is still a great season to enjoy and decorate your garden and celebrate the beauty of life.

If you are a lover of both summer and autumn, follow me below with some garden decorations tips for this summer and autumn.

1. Lantern with flowers

Decorate your old lantern with flowers when having friends over for breakfast, lunch or tea. 


2. Make a vertical garden out of an old pallet
