Well, we are having some real summer days here, so warm we even could leave the garden doors open yesterday till the time we went to bed.
But we had also some fierce rainshowers, most during the night, it seems that Saturday night there was even some thunder and lightning, according to Jan. I didn;t notice any of it LOL!
Friday Jan and I went to the market, it was such nice weather for it. We came home with strawberries, mini cucumber, some cheese, prunes and mandarines.
So we can take in a lot of vitamines!
With the rainshowers and warm and sunny days you almost can see changes in the garden every day.
Saturday when I was out for the newspaper, I couldn;t resist walking to the flowershop where they have lots of garden plants too. And I came back with some.
We have two cannisters, where Jan plated bulbs, but they don;t performe very well. Lots of leaves, but still no sign of a bud. So I wanted to change that into happy and colorfull cannisters.
We planted the bulbs in another one(cause you never know if still something lovely comes out of them ) and replanted the two, close to our sitting place at the patio.
Of course I;ve made a picture of one of them. We have a lupine in the middle, srrounded by little carnations. They have all sorts of candy like colors.
Then we are of full expectation still of the real tall ones we planted, about 80 cms. high and should have a BIG flower.
But here the photo of the 1st, not completely sharp, I think, but well enough to see how sweet it is.
We also enjoyed some great matches from our hockeyteams. They still have to do one match in the 1st round, but already are sure of a place int semi finals.
Also have to congratulate the American women team, doing great as well as the Australians, last one both men and women and the Belgian men team is doing very well too. So still exciting matches to come, to see which will reach the semi finals! Only the frist two of each pool wil go through.
We will certainly enjoy the summer day today, as for the rest of the week there will be some temperature dropdown(weather is still acting like a yoyo), although there will still enough sunshine to enjoy.
Today also is the birthday of my mother, who already passed away a long time ago, but I always put on a light at such days. Almost impossible to imagine that if she stayed alive till now she would have 98 years of age! That shows how quickly we grow old too LOL!
No. I am not really sad, it is life and it happened a long time ago, but no matter how long ago, she still is near to me, into my thoughts and heart, as well as my father.
And that is a good feeling.
Now time for the second part of the kit Summer Explosion. I am busy with another kit, almost ready, yeah, but must find a name for it. Hmmm, something will pop up when making the preview(I hope).
You all have a marvelous day, see you back on Wednesday, with Arlene's add-on, and that's super.
