Hi everyone, It feels good to be back! Two busy weeks ended with the birthday of a friend yesterday afternoon. In the morning we had an hour left to spend in the garden.
When we rented our allotment garden three years ago, we were told that the equestrian centre that was situated behind our garden, would disappear soon to make room for houses.
Everything stayed the same for nearly three years, but when we approached our garden this weekend the centre was suddenly gone. Not only the horses and stables had disappeared, but the old willow trees behind our garden house as well. How I miss it all. I know there are far worse things in the world, but at that moment I felt sad.
Dark thoughts made room for bright ideas. Perhaps we could place a wire screen and plant Clematis Montana against it. I can already see the screen covered in little pink flowers next spring. The trees having gone has one big advantage: we have more sunlight! That means a wider range of choice in flowers to plant!!
The garden itself has changed as well. The crocusses made room for daffodils, scilla, hyacints and grape hyacints. The trees are full of blossoms in the prettiest shades of pink and white. It looks so beautiful against a blue sky! I bought some bright pink Primula's and a Magnolia tree to put in the garden and I made my first garden bouquet. It is tiny, but that doesn't matter. It looks very sweet and it makes me happy.
I decided to join Jane's 'What's blooming in your house today', actually it is more 'What's blooming in my garden'. Sorry Jane!
I wish you blue skies and sun for this week. Enjoy!
Lieve groet, Madelief x
