My garden changed again

Standard

My small garden needed some more care.

After the new fence was done,

I decided to have some decking down to hide a grey concrete floor.

We worked hard to get it all done.

We made it very quick really.

but now it needed rearranging….

so I moved pots, potted new plants, and changed things around.

I am happy with this now!

You can see the left side is my “Strawberry Field”

Through an inspiration from Sartenata’s Blog,

I used some old shoes to pot plants in.

Also I made a planter from an old pallet and painted it.

Now there is parsley and mint on one side and petunias on the other.

I do love my tea cups in the garden too!

 

Here is more detail in the slideshow.

My special walk

Standard

I heard from Steffi that WordPress is doing this special walk wwwp5k .

A 5k run/walk is approximately 3.1 miles long. That is roughly equal to:

  • Twelve laps around a track.

  • Approximately 6,000-7,500 steps.

  • Approximately 50-60 minutes of brisk walking.

It was any time between Monday, September 19th to Sunday, September 25th, lace up your running/walking/hiking/hopping shoes and join us for the 5k blogged about around the world!

 I participated and here is my post

I made it a mindful walk on my own.

My impressions from my walk:

and now for the count:

That was a lovely mindful walk,

Why not try a mindful walk yourself,

being fully present,

notice the beauty around you,

enjoy every step you do,

… and you don’t even notice how far you go!

 

 

Holiday time

Standard

In August I went on holiday to different places for short periods.

( Mallorca- Spain and Germany)

In Mallorca the palm trees were my favourite, ( see here)

In Germany the lakes for swimming were super.

This is the dress I bought in Mallorca.

With Spanish temperatures in Bavaria I could wear it again.

Here is the proof….. I went into this lake too….

yes, I did go deeper and swam, it was so refreshing.

What a view of the blue sky …… under the shade of a tree.

The flowers with all the different vibrant colours always bring a spectacular show.

I also have learnt how to make the best latte or cappuccino, with frothy milk.

Yummy.

Goes really well with a slice of Black Forest Gateau.sst

 

Life is good!

Enjoy every moment!

I do!

Piece of Paradise

Standard

As you can read on my last post a beach makes me happy.

That is mainly because – for me – a beach has to have palm trees and I loooove them.

I have had the great opportunity to go to a beach in the north of Mallorca.

I saw many palm trees , all different ones:

short palm trees

My Garden Heaven

Standard

Come with me in my little garden.

Small but so enjoyable and beautiful.

Enjoy the small things and see the beauty in it.

My strawberries are coming so lovely this year.

GARDEN jUNE2016 (1)

 

They are bigger in size, as we had lots of rain,

still not quite red as we do not have enough sun, but…..

All things grow with love!

Slowly they are getting red though, see for yourself:

I love my garden and am very grateful for this little oasis.

Almost any garden,

if you see it at just the right moment,

can be confused with paradise.

Birthday and Rainforest

Standard

I have been away to celebrate my mum’s 90th birthday.

My mum deserved a great Birthday Party.

She is doing well and could enjoy everything to the full.

We had a lovely celebration, great food ,

lovely company and everyone was happy.

Never forget to tell your loved ones that you love them.

❤ ❤ ❤

While we were there, we visited the Rainforest there too.

Urahcer Wasserfall (1)

Yes, it was in Germany,

still we walked through the forest

and it rained heavily. 🙂

At the end of the walk we were rewarded

with the view of the local waterfall.

Urahcer Wasserfall (3)

The Uracher Wasserfall

falls 37 meters down and had lots of water as it had rained a lot before.

Urahcer Wasserfall (10)

 

You cannot drive to the waterfall but have to walk as there is a conservation area around it. It is beautiful to walk through the forest, and only hear the birds, the splashing of the little stream next to you and then the tossing of the waterfall.

As it is June everything is beautifully lush and green.

Here 2 pictures from my mum’s garden, I particularly like.

What a perfect rose!
