Progress in the walled garden.

I´m playing catch-up but I still wanted to say hi and share this picture of the walled garden. I finally decided on a color for the barn doors - it´s the same grey/blue I used on the front door of house. It is quite a funny color that can be a definite grey or a bright smurfy blue, depending on the light. I thought it would be nice to have some consistency with exterior colors, and I really like it so far. Also, some weeks ago I spent a weekend on my knees to scrape a layer of dirt and weeds off this very old brick path. I am so happy with how it turned out.

More progress is going to happen soon: I received a huge shipment of plants yesterday, all for the walled garden... stay tuned!

Happy Weekend.

This week has been difficult. Again. But! My weekend will bring some more gardening, some more painting, an overdue visit to the hairdresser and on Sunday evening, I´ll board a flight to Munich to see my family and friends for a few days. This shall be nice, yes? Yes.

Have a good weekend!

Spring in the garden. 

The huge cherry tree in our garden is blooming right now, and everything else is starting to become green and lush. I love this time of year. I also found a good spot to hang the hammock and maybe next weekend I´ll get the chance to spend more time in it. I´ve been insanely busy with painting the exterior of the house, and we now have a huge strawberry patch and a potatoe field! I´ll show you more pictures of the progress soon. Yay for gardening season!

Women, painted.

I discovered a few great Etsy artists lately... I am thinking about putting together an art wall just with portraits of women. Maybe in the bedroom? My treasury is here if you´re interested.

Happy Friday!
