It really is. Sunday was the first "barefoot in clogs in the garden" day of the season. Magical.
(Also, I still love the color of our chicken coop. Just saying.)
We´ve been working in the garden like maniacs. Among other projects we are re-inventing the vegetable garden - but more on that in another post.
Last year in autumn I was so garden-tired that I couldn´t be bothered to plant spring bulbs. Which of course I do regret now. The ones that are there make me super happy. So I´ll set aside some money to do a big planting session this autumn and I am making myself accountable by mentioning it here... I can do this.
Speaking of I can do this, I spent two (!) whole days on my knees cleaning up this little path in front of our barn. Scraping out weeds out of these gaps = no fun. I put it off last year and it looked terribly neglected all summer long. But look how nice it is now! All the hard work paid off. Alas, it will look this nice for about two seconds before the weeds return. Oh well.
Look, tulips! And the little old handcart that I saved from the neighbor´s junk pile (by now, I have a reputation for hoarding junk in this village). Anyway it is perfect here. I´ll paint it a bright blue, yes? Ah, spring. I like you.
