    • Lush landscapes – Inspire us with your garden views and rich scenery
    • Chill out corners – Show us your peaceful spots, your haven of calm or maybe where you catch the last of the evening sun
    • Creative small spaces – Good things often come in small packages, show us your courtyard, balcony, window box, pots or planters
    • Homegrown goodness – Do you have a bumper crop of beans, a super-sized squash or some perfect peas?
