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”
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.
Now I can invite you in my garden
for a peaceful and happy time!
Oxford is a beautiful University city in England.
It has been a town since 9th century and has an ancient university.
My friends and I recently visited Oxford for a day out.
Here are my impressions:
We finished a wonderful day out in Oxford
with a traditional English Cream Tea.
Cream tea – refreshments
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.
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 can see jam coming up….. ❤
Here are some other shots of my garden.
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.
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.
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.
falls 37 meters down and had lots of water as it had rained a lot before.
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!
