Walled garden update. 

I am still insanely busy - we are gearing up for my husband´s big fat 40ieth birthday celebration this Saturday and I am feeling nauseous just by looking at my to-do-list - but the walled garden looked so good this evening that I ran to get the camera und took a few pictures. It´s been super dry around here (again, just like last year); not a drop of rain for four weeks now so it is definitly a challenge to keep the garden happy and thriving but I think so far I´ve managed it well in the walled garden. Everything is about to bloom in here, just a few more warm days and it will explode with color, but I think it´s lovely right now already with the restrained color palette of whites, blues and pinks.

Spot the dog?

See, I even managed to keep the lawn green-ish! 

I still think this Iris is the prettiest. 

Spot the cat?

Acquilegia, my love.

Ok this is not in the walled garden, but it´s still pretty. I got the idea for that line of chives on Pinterest and love how it turned out. So thank you Pinterest.

See you (hopefully) next week with a few pictures from the party and another book club post!

Glorious! On all levels, from ground to sky - I mean that photo looking at the back gate with the flower gardens and the trees in the background! Wowzer.

There's a glorious display of chives in one of our city gardens. It's definitely inspired me to do the same.

Are you hosting the party at your house? If so, the garden is going to be spectacular for it! Happy birthday to your husband. :-)
