Frost and Rain Flowers

Standard

During my visit in Germany now in February

it was cold and frosty.

I took pictures of the frosty flowers in the morning.

I love the frost on the leaves, looked like little crystals.

Then the rained…

It creates a different effect on flowers, rather beautiful

when you look closely.

How those raindrops stick to the plant,

before they get to heavy and drop.

Keep warm and enjoy the beauty!

 

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:

all from my Strawberry Alley

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.
