I left work early today to do some work in the garden. There is still so much to do before the gardening season starts. The veranda and terrace are full of branches that we have to make mulch of and there are still trees that we have to prune. I am always a sort of excited when I walk the path to our garden. How will it look like, will everything be ok, will there be something new in bloom? The best way to see it all is on your knees, with your nose just a few centimeters above the ground. I could see the pulmonaria pink haze, the blue crocusses and the white helleborus in bloom. The helleborus purpurascens and the daffodils won't be long. I could already see the buds. The leaves of the acquilegia's and the lady in the bath were just visible. I can't wait for it all to grow. While sitting there two long tailed tits came flying by and a treecreeper worked it's way up the big pine tree. How beautiful nature is!
While sitting in my garden house contemplating what would be my next gardening project I decided I might as wel stack some cups and plates to join Irma's Stapelen op vrijdag. I hope it won't be long before I can use it all again for a tea party. I plan to host one in May or June and perhaps invite some blogfriends who live nearby.
Today is the day that I would announce the winner of my giveaway. This time the book will be send to Germany, to Susi from Susi's gelbes Haus. Susi congratulations to you!! Will you please mail me your name and address so that I can send 'Bazaar Style' on it's way?!
All the other ladies thank you very much for taking part in my giveaway and leaving comments on my blog. Unfortunately I haven't been able to reply to you all. I am sorry about that, but I hope you will forgive me.
I wish you all a wonderful weekend!
Lieve groet, Madelief
