Weekly Inspiration No 32 – Enjoyment again and again

Standard

I really enjoyed Spring with its’ wonderful blossom

This post showed how beautiful Spring blossom was.

Now in August we can reap the fruits…

I harvested pears from a small tree

and made pear jam out of it.

That is only from the first kilo.

I shall do more in a minute.

Nature gives us so much to enjoy!

Make the most of it!

Much love

from me!

Weekly Inspiration No 27 – Take care

Standard

Life is like a flower

If you don’t take care of it,

it will fade.”

 

I bought some reduced, dry and almost dying plants at the local DIY shop.

I wanted to nurture them and give them life again.

First they got greener with water,

then they started blooming.

 

 

Now they show me how thankful they are with many colouful blooms,

I am grateful too!

 

I enjoy them every day and take care of them.

They give me smiles every day!

 

Take care of things to enjoy!

Also take care of yourself !

Much love

from me!

Strawberry Alley

Standard

As you know I have strawberry plants in my garden

and harvested some last year.

This year however my harvest was even better.


This year I had rather big strawberries

 

and lots of them.

My harvest filled big plates like this:

and this:

 

all from my Strawberry Alley

you can see on the left of my garden!

They tasted wonderful! Yum Yum

 

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 smile went bigger this week

I had collected seeds from different Palm trees and

Hoping they grow big and strong for me

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.
