I will have to keep it rather short today, because Jan and I will go actually to the Japanese Garden in a beautiful park. The "Japanese garden isn;t really very big, but I just know it will be beautiful. And if we still have energy we can take a bit of time walking in the park around it.
Pity it is rather far away,so we first will take a part of the way the tram, (ours isn;t riding all the way to that area), and then we will walk the rest of the way. That will take about half an hour, or.......we could take a bus that stops not far from the parc. Depends a bit on how we feel I guess LOL.
Best will be I think, to take the walk and then when we want to return home, we can take the bus and tram.
Weather looks gorgeous for this walk, it is sunny with not too much wind, and temperatures should go up during the day to about 66 F ( 19 C). Lovely!
Yesterdaymorning I had a quick visit from my friend Heidi, who brought me some Aquilegia, I had before but lost somehow. We had, of course, a quick look at my garden but then she had to leave for an appointment.
This Aquilegia is such a beautiful one, it has a double flower head, is about 80 cm hiegh full grown and in flowering, likes a place lightly shadowed(although they also do well in sunny spots).
Found a picture on the net of it:
So yes, I took it home. It is variaty named Acer Palmatum Orange Dream, I found you a pic of it on the net, first is the spring colors and second colors in fall. Isn;t it gorgeous???
So in the afternoon I was busy first digging out a big fern to make place for this beauty, (gosh, the fern was heavy, but I managed and found another good place for it) and then could plant the acer. I placed it not far from the little chair with the Buddha, thought it was fitting nice. Now it only will take some time, before it will reach a decent height and width.
Freebie for today is a kit named Breathless, I splitted it into 2 downloads, so now you will have part one, next week second part and also beauties from Arlene!
Have a wonderful day and weekend!
