The garden looks lovely at the moment. All the touches of green, the pinks and whites of the blossoms and the blue of the grape hyacints and forget-me-nots. Even the buds on the trees look pretty. Some like they are made of silver. This weekend I planted some Dahlia tubers (different varieties), put the seeds of the Sweet Pea's (hierloom bicolour mixed & elegant ladies), Zinnia's (Green Envy, Purple Prince, and mixed colours), Cosmea and blue Delphiniums into the ground and started on my first big garden project this year.
Two years ago my husband bought an old metal garden set for next to nothing. We put it behind our garden house and never really used it. We simply could not find time to clean it up and paint it.
This weekend the time was right to make a start. As you can see on the photo's I made a mess of it. Even dropped the paint can! Pfff, luckily the paint ended up on the plastic and not on the terrace. I have still one more chair and a table to go, but I can already see how beautiful it will look once finished.
Wish you all a lovely day! I am off to my garden!
Lieve groet, Madelief x
