In the garden, May 2017.

I think the garden is just heartbreakingly beautiful right now, so I took a bunch of pictures this evening. 

My white tulips are gone, but the pink and almost-black ones are still going strong.

I love this picture.

Look how big that white lilac in the corner is. I very clearly remember how I planted a very tiny plant in our first year here, with the hope that one day it would look like this. Good things come to those who wait.

I think this long border will be very pretty this summer.

We finished the tomato houses this weekend. I was worried that they would look odd with the greenhouse foil up, but I don´t mind it at all. Now imagine these filled with tomato plants and dahlias blooming in the borders! 

The veggie garden is coming along, but still looking a bit sparse. Red cabbage is always pretty though, and so is that lonely aquilegia that self-seeded in my strawberry patch. 

Bonus picture! "Am I pretty mom?" "You sure are my love."

PS: I´ll take a little blog break since we are going on a holiday next week! If anyone has recommendations for the Cotentin peninsula in Northern France, I´d very happy to hear them. We´ll be back after Pentecost. Have a good few weeks!
