FROZEN

Frost in the garden and a bit of sun, turns the garden into a Winter wonderland.

AUCUBA JAPONICA
REMAINS OF ROSA SEAGULL
SPINELESS HOLLY J.C.VAN TOL
DRIED FLOWER OF SEDUM SPECTABILE

When I was taking these pictures in my garden my puppy fell through the thin ice cover on the pond, lucky she was able to come out quickly. I wrapped her dry with a big towel and kept her with me wrapped in a fleece blanket. I was shocked as she is tiny (mini Maltese).

Have a great weekend all.

A PEEK IN MY GARDEN

Views from my world

So far we have one of the best Springs ever, it is 22 C° in the shade so everythings grows  and grows. We have been working in the garden a lot in the past weeks, on top of that we have the kids cos of the Easter holidays (2 weeks) so by the time it is evening I am total loss, out of it and so on….I am not a Spring chicken anymore and I can feel it ( I can also see that in the mirror ofcourse).

I took some pictures for you.
