We had some serious hailstones dropping from the sky last night. I didn’t take any photos of it as I was all nice cuddled up on/in my bed with my latest crochet project. Basically, I was too lazy to get up to get my camera downstairs. Plus I didn’t wanted to wake up Daan who more than once sabotaged my attempt to work on my blanket.
What I do like is that after all that rain the garden looks refreshed. I must say, it needed some sediment. This morning I spotted some sunshine so I took my camera and walked into the garden. It’s now filled with Columbine, which I so love. Every year I save the seeds and throw them all over the place, so we get more and more columbines. And I never know which colours they get, it’s every year a surprise. Some of them have now two colours in one flower. So pretty.There was a busy bee that wouldn’t stay put. He flew from flower to flower, very, very busy with doing his bee-business. I love bees, don’t you? They are funny little creatures, I think. The biggest discovery during this ‘walk’ were the passion flowers. Are these amazing, or what? And they are so big! I love that beautiful vibrant lilac-purple colour, it’s absolutely stunning.Early in Spring, when it’s too chilly to sit on the terrace, it’s often warm enough to sit in our arbour. Away from the wind, we have Sunday morning breakfast in here.Aahh, look at our re-filled flower basket. The petunia’s are very grateful for some water. Lovely they are.
Anyway, must move on now. I have some yarn in a basket, you see, cotton this time. And a crochet hook. You know what I mean, don’t you?
