Goodmorning to you after a sunny weekend! And today the sun is visiting us again!
Where to start to tell about the weekend? Not that we did a lot, LOL, but for starters I have some pictures for you.Finally. The first one is taken a few days ago, showing Jan's seedlings, still rather small but growing and enjoying some time in the sun!
Then I made a picture of another part of the terrace, that day, you see a lovely hydrangea I bought and at the back also an azalea. Then an overview of the garden with not all tulips blooming yet. You can see the daffodils, at the end of their blooming, so I pinched out the flowerheads this weekend, to let the bulbs get some energy again, and hopefully they will bloom again next year.
And in the back of the garden I also have an azalea and trhe flower buds are colouring and within perhaps a few days they should open. And I noticed that some of my Columbies start showing their flower buds! I just love Columbines. You should always have some in a garden, I would have for sure some more, there are so many varieties in it, amazing!
While we were at times busy with the plants, Brodski just enjoyed the warmth of the sunshine, and only moved when one of us passed him very closely, then he started to roll over the ground and almost screaming, yeah, to get our attention LOL!
While walking to the market we passeda "childrens farm"as we call it. There they keep some sheep, cows, rabbits, pigs etc. that children can visit and even touch. And I made a portrait of a real Ducth cow for you, grin!
Well, that are the pictures for now.
I do have to make a bit of promotion for Minky again. She renewed one of her blogs, specially started to help raise some funds for the Starchildren project. And oh whee, what a marvellous job she did on it. You really should take a look there and she has made several pages, so click all of them to see all the beautiful things she is offering. At the moment she also has some special offerings, so certainly worth the visit ! And there are also some freebies to snatch! I'll give you the link and if you visit leave her a little message, she deserves it, cause she worked very hard to get it ready and it is soooo beautiful!
Yesterday we just enjoyed our garden, sat outside a bit, reading and Jan making some crosswords, really it was a lazy Sunday. Oh, something weird also happened yesterday. I was busy in the kitchen when Jan called me, to take a look at something. He told me, that he was hearing a strange sound all the time, not paying attention to it first, but then was puzzled by it. So he went on a search and finally found it! He showed me the big watering-can we have in the garden and told me to take a look inside. And what did I see?????
There was a little toad sitting in it, making that wierd squeeking noise, he couldn;t get out of it! I wonder how he got inside at the first place! So Jan held the watering can upside down, shook it a bit and there he fell out, our toad! Now is jumping free and happy around in the garden again.!
So today definately I have to do some work around here, my washing machine is filled, and the good thing is that I can dry the laundry outside now, so it will take in some of the smell of the spring air, wonderful!
And there are more of the usual tasks waiting to be done, but I don;t mind it so much, as long as the sun is shining and the temperatures are still going up, I am much more in the mood to do those things.
We start today with a daily download again, at the end of the 6 downloads I think you will have collected a nice kit! It's named : "Shabby Roses".
Time for me to take a walk in the garden and then get busy.
Have a lovely day and try to be happy, just small things already can make you feel happy at times!
