Signs of Spring, Week 7...

Oh boy oh boy, just look at all the color in our back yard at the moment! 

We've had two perfect Spring weekends in a row and the garden is so thankful. (and so was I!) The vegetable patch has been turned and most of our veggies have been planted. Some as starts (red cabbage, beets, leeks, onions, garlic) and some as seeds. (corn, radishes, beans)

The grass was cut twice this week because it was growing like crazy. I did some edging with a shovel and some weeding of course. In between all that I sat on our patio and did some actual sunbathing! Perfect Spring Break weather!  {smile!}

Today is Monday again and guess who's back? Mr. Rain of course, but that's ok. Now I actually feel like cleaning up the house a bit and do some more sewing etc. (those things always get left by the curbside when the sun comes out)

Oh, and a short note on yesterday's post: yes, that was indeed a 'colibri' Monica. We have them here year around to my big surprise. They do sound like a tiny jet plane and I always duck for cover when I hear their sound. I don't think I've ever seen one in Holland before...

PS Have you guys discovered PicMonkey yet???? It is the new Picnic photo program it has very many fabulous features: so much fun!!!
(I think I may be a bit late on the bandwagon here, but I've been busy with all that Photoshop stuff of course...)  <wink>


  1. Oh wat heerlijk dat je eindelijk hebt kunnen zonnebaden! Het lijkt hier alweer zolang geleden! :) Ik hoop dat het straks in Portugal wél zonnig is, want hier is het echt huilen met de pet op!

  2. Thank you for enlightening me about the colibri! It must be fantastic to have them around! I have onley seen them in pictures.
    To judge from your pictures you already have summer. Now we are far behind.
    Kram, Monica

  3. All the pictures are so good and nice and it's like you already have summer! Lucky you! We don't. It's raining spicks and specks and it's cold and terrible. But you just wait!!!!


How wonderful to hear from you!

Flooded waters...

With all the recent rainfall and snow melting in the mountains, some flooding occurred once again in our valley. Yesterday, whils...
