Less "pet-baby sitting"to do!

Goodmorning everybody!

Though the weather is a bit unpredictable at the moment, in our part of Holland we are the lucky ones, with the most of the sunshine and not much rain. So in all it was a nice weekend. Yesterday afternoon we were at Heidi and danny's home to wish Danny a happy birthday. It was such nice weather we could sit in their garden. It was nice to see them again and have a little chat.
There is a little change in the pet baby sitting we will do for them during their holiday. We will only have the rabbit and the bird. The goldfish stays at home, because Danny bought a very small aquarim, with a few other fish in it too, so the goldfish isn;t lonely anymore. Now his parents, who live also close by, will take care of the fish.
I also sent away a little letter to Séverine to the scouting camp, told her mother about it and she was very happy to hear it and she told me, that a lot of people sent her a card or little letter, so whe will have today or tomorrow a lot of post!

I promised you some more pictures of the garden, here they are:
I thought I lost this Malva, but suddenly it came up again and blooms great!

This is a plant I love very much. It's called a "Heuchera"and there are lots of different colored ones. This one is a birght almost yellow and caramel colour, which is a great accent between all the green. And here's another one, dar red/brown:
And another even darker, aren;t they great?

A shot of my lavender:
And take a look at the tomatoe plants! They are huge and I made a close up of the first tomatoes showing up:
We also had a few strawberries, we need more plants to have a serious crop, but they taste real sweet. Not to compare to the ones you buy at the vegetable store! SOmething to think about for next year!

It's time for me to have another coffee and then get busy around here. So on to the freebie for today, a sweet little kit named: "at the Old Farm". Have fun with it. Oh, no, before I leave I will have to give you a link to a sweet blog from Mitzi, who is generously offering a lot of posers for free and she makes real nice ones! Take a moment to visit her blog Mitzi's Harem, you will not be disappointed! I used one of her posers in my blog layout.
Have a wonderful day, and happy 4th of July to my American friends!!

Hello!
You have green hands! Great photos of your garden. I love photos of garden because I live in an apartment downtown and I don't have a garden.
Thank you for the free kit.
