Welcome back, summer!

September 18th, 2014

I admit I was wearing winter clothes in August, the whole package: boots, hat, wool pants, cashmere sweater and coat…depressing right? Well it were two weeks of freezing 15 and less degrees in the Netherlands (I wasn’t surprised that much) but now I am. Summer is back in September and I really regret not having any fruit trees in my hot garden, it gets up to 30˚C in the sun…and we have brick walls…so extra warm weather here. I am getting back to blogging after a month of holiday and I also will go back to the normal routine, non-gardening stuff and into the depths of life basically. For the moment the last pics of my garden which turned out pretty well I think. Another cleaning and it should be done for this year.

French Garden Roses

No posts lately as I have been out gardening a lot. With all that inspiration I got from Monty Don’s travel videos I grabbed my idea of a French garden and now it starts taking shape. There will be a pottage (in mini version), a sitting area with roses and a herb garden are already visible…
