Two weeks ago we had a few warm and sunny autumn days in Holland. I already cleaned the outdoor kitchen and prepared the garden house for winter, but this was too good an opportunity to miss.....another beautiful day in the garden!
I invited my parents to enjoy part of the day with us, and have lunch together. Because the grass was soaking wet, we put the table on the decking, which my brother recently renewed. From this elevated position we had a good view of the garden; the colourful flowers, the little garden house, the old hazelnut tree, the leaves of the plants slowly turning red, the morning mist.... I soaked it all up. It will be a long five months before the first spring flowers appear. Wish it could be sooner!
At the end of the day we took the last vegetables home with us. Some red and green peppers, garlic, oak leaf lettuce and grapes. Now it's time to open up my garden books once more and start thinking of what lies ahead. Will I plant more flowers, get rid of the herbs and some blackberry bushes, what shall I do with the fig tree that's giving too much shade......?
A lovely weekend to you all!
