Teeny weeny flowers pop up everywhere! Bluebells, sweet woodruff, forget-me-nots, Geraniums, Jacob's ladder and many more. In between this floral prettiness, we celebrated a birthday party. Right until the end it was uncertain if the weather would hold. We had a hazy start, but while we were eating cakes and sipping tea, the sun came out. I am sure we must have had a bit of help from above. It was difficult, but lovely as well, to celebrate in the garden.
A special thank you to my sister in law Anne and to my friend Ilse, who helped me bake. A big hug to my brother, who took lots of old scaffolding boards with him. They will be used to repair the raised beds in the cutting garden. Thank you to Theo too, for fastening the roof of the garden house, so that it will not fly away with the next storm.
Thank you too, for having a look at my blog now an then and leave comments. They always make me smile :-)
If you live in Rotterdam, Amsterdam, Haarlem, The Hague, Elburg, Groningen, Leeuwarden or Tilburg, it may be interesting to visit one of the Open Jewish Houses this weekend. The houses belonged to Jewish inhabitants, who were deported during the second world war. Survivors, children, neighbours, historians, will tell about their family, friends and some well known people, who once lived in one of these houses. I think it's a beautiful way to commemorate those who lost their lives. I will be working as a volunteer in Rotterdam, so perhaps we will meet! Please have a look at the website of Open Joodse Huizen, if you would like to know more.
A Happy weekend!
