Soon we will have a new Central Heating kettle.

Goodmorning everybody!

Still good weather here, we even had a little bit of rain yesterday morning. I don;t think it was really enough for the garden, but it helps.
This whole week should still be good weather with temps around 22C, perhaps here and there a little rainshower.
So I think we shouldn;t complain right now.

Last friday I had the plumber over to look at our central heating kettle(which provides us warmth and also hot water), that desparately needs to be changed. And the last couple of days it even started to make some funny noises at times as I use the hot water. So I am real happy that in two weeks the plumber will replace the kettle for a new one and hopefully a lot of trouble we had with the old one will be history. Now just cross fingers that the old one will hold on for another two weeks.

In a few days my friend Heidi will be back from holiday, and it will be good to see her again. I hope we can meet somewhere next week.
So I just have to go to her home 2 or 3 times more to feed the fish and see, if the garden needs some watering and to collect the mail.
Then tomorrow  have another appointment for my dentals, I will also be glad when that will be finished, needs some more weeks.

I promised you already two times or so some new photos from the garden. It is hard to get an overview of it, but i tried. Perhaps it is a bit too light, but difficult to get a good photograph with that light contrast of sunny side and shade. But perhaps you get an idea. This was made about two weeks ago.
Then  have a lovely hydrangea that is blooming now, at the time I made the photo it kind of started now it is in full glory and I love the color.
And here a kind of "giant"lilly. The flower is enormous!

I wasn't very busy at the computer lately, I must admit. During the day I am doing things in the house, or grocerie shopping, or some reading under the parasol in the garden and enjoying the birds.
So the only time I do some designing is in the morning when I check my mail, but then I don;t have always great inspiration.
But I almost finished a new kit, so I am still a bit happy with myself.
Today I have the clusters for you from Arlene, made with the Behind the Attic door kit.
Have a wonderful day and week.

Oh my Kyra, your garden is just lovely. Your rhododendrons are gorgeous. It must be lovely to sit out there and relax.

It's good to hear that your heater will be replaced soon. It's best to do it now so that you will be warm during the winter. It's always something when you have a home, isn't it? But I guess it helps to keep us busy.

You have a wonderful day, my friend. Hugs, Edna B.

They are lovely as usual. And you have a great looking garden. Is there a niche out there to see in the shade and read amidst the beautiful smells?
