May was such a good month in the garden. The walled garden looks stunning, if I may say so myself.
It´s just that right now, every bed looks really good - no gaps, mature plants, lovely colors. Very happy.
In other news, I painted the deck! Yep I am moving fast. I think it looks perfect. I still need to do some touch ups and then I´ll show you proper pictures.
The yellow climbing roses have exploded this year. This is exactly how I envisioned this space but I never thought it would look like this two mere years after planting the roses. Also I bought the nicest bench - from Amazon of all places, for not much moneys at all. It is a little on the small side but I think with the two large planters by each side it does work.
Ludwig says hi. He´s just the cutest these days.
The husband had a birthday this week so we invited some of the villagers over for a garden party. We decided to mix things up a bit and set the tables under the big trees in the rear part of our garden. It was really, really lovely. I hung lanterns in the trees (if you look closely you can see a few) and it looked magical at dusk.
Last but not least, this is a little bouquet that I got from one of our neighbours. Isn´t it the prettiest? Flowers are the best. And neighbours who can arrange them like this, obviously.
