Pity about the wind.

Goodmorning everybody!

Well, we had quite a nice weekend. What did we do on Friday?
I firts did a little of foodshopping and when I came home again, we first had something to drink and then we went to the market. It was rather nice weather, so a good time to do so.
We were in need of some fresh fruit, and the best place to buy is the market.
But.........I found a bargain there too! There was a stand with lots of trousers, so why not have a look? And I found two for Jan, that he liked too, and you know what? They were priced at only € 5,00 a piece! Unbelievable, isn;t it? You wouldn;t expect they were any good, but on the contrary, they were of good quality, really. Now Jan has enough good trousers for the whole year and longer. Such bargain finds make me happy!
We also bought a bit of fruit, and oh, the plant stand was there again!!!!
does it wonder you that we came home with a new plant? I don;t think so LOL!
It's a rose bush that will stay rather low, can grow about 23,6 inches high, but it is more a ground cover rose, that can spread around for about 40 inches. It is full of buds, and soon they will open. I will show you some photos when they will bloom.
The last couple of days there is some fierce wind, which makes it less agreable to be outside.
But Saturday we took a little walk, to a school not too far away from us, where a friend of us is working and they had their annual "party". It's more playing time for the kids and some attractions for them, but it was a good reaon to see our friend, and we even met with a couple of old aquantances, which was nice. We didn;t stay very long, because there was still a lot of wind, so returned home.

Yesterday is alreay was better, we were able to sit in the garden, and do nothing.
I watched for some time some little birds that came to the birdfeeder, and I love to do that.
I am glad there still are some birds around, because they don;t have as much room to make their nests as for some 10 or even 20 years ago. Lots of houses still have gardens, that isn;t the problem, but a lot of people just put tiles and terrasses in them and not much plants and trees anymore. Not good for the animal world in the cities.
But in our neighbourhhood still is some greenery so it is good to see that some species came back and now I can watch them in my garden.
When I was snailhunting yesterday night I saw that our little pond is used again. Yes, I saw a little frog in there, having a nap!

Today the weather conditions look already to be better, still a bit windy, but that will change too. They siad on the weather channel that the next few days wind will diminish and temperatures will rise, so we will see how long that will last.

Perhaps today is just the good day to do some ironing, and I should also shorten Jan;s new trousers.
Then I also have to finish the garden archive ledgers, put all articles on place etc. So enough things to do, and therefore I will finish now, to start a little bit in time.
I have a kit for you in French style, hopefully you can use some of it. It's is named "Paris √Čternel".
Have a nice day, and try to have a smile somewhere today!

What a pretty little kit! I love the colors. I agree that so many folks are using up more and more of the wildlife's space, and not leaving any green areas for the animals and birds. It is such a pleasure to sit out and listen to the birds and watch them at the feeder. Humankind is so greedy.

I hope you and Jan get to sit out more this week. It's wonderful that your little frog is back in the pond. I haven't seen any frogs for quite a long time now.

You have a wonderful day now, hugs, Edna B.

Hello dear, sorry late today, had a very busy weekend with my friend Jannette! Her eye surgery went well and we had a fun lunch after the follow up visit on Sunday! 2 round trips that put about 80 miles on my car, but it wasn't bad, just tiring!
I had real work to do today, but because we had storms with lightning until about 10:00 a.m. I did not turn my computer on until after they were all gone. Got some much needed rain, but WHEW the humidity climbed up with the 97F temps! I have been putting ice cubes in the birdbath and the cats drinking water outside for about a week now....! LOL!
Y'all have a great week and oh yes, thanks for the gifts, appreciate them so very, very much! Chat again on Wednesday! Hugs, Mat

Many thanks, as always! I'm looking forward to your new garden photos. I love the warm growing season and the nesting, singing birds.
