It was more than a week ago since I last visited my garden. While I have been enjoying a short break with my parents in Limburg, my middle daughter took care of the plants. She watered the tomatoes and cucumbers in the greenhouse and got rid of the worst weeds. According to her, the garden was no longer 'under control'.
While I walked up my garden path and had a good look around, I realised she was right. It looked a bit overgrown. We had some excessive rainfall the last two weeks, which made it virtually impossible to work. The garden being soaking wet. I probably told you before that my garden is in a polder, a few meters below sea level. So I think you know what I mean.
With renewed energy (that's what a couple of days in the country do with me) I set off to work: cleaning my cutting patch, mowing my grass (at last) and get rid of some long stems, which made it impossible for me to walk to my garden house without scratching my arms, legs or face. Before heading home, I cut some sweet peas. Probably the last of this season. I will miss the bright colours and sweet scent of the queen of annuals!
Wishing you a happy week! It's going to be sunny in The Netherlands. It will be lovely to have summer back. If only for a few days. Enjoy!
