Not that I find it necessary to mention my new banner, really, BUT I knicked the spring-green picture (spring is finally here, I'm so happy!) from Wallcoo.net, where you can download free wallpaper-images.
Credit should be given when credit is due.
I did edit it into a banner myself, but still. It's a nice picture and I got it for free :-).
Talking about spring, this morning I had a walk around our courtyard garden with our gardener and I had an insight. I've long since wanted, longed for, dreamed about a garden, but since I live in a flat it's only a dream.
But really, I have a garden. A garden with professional gardeners at my service mind you. Not that I can pick the flowers I've planted in it (if people see me they might think I'm stealing them, since it's not commonly known to the other residents that I've planted all the tulips and daffodils...) but still. I'm the designer, I have pretty much free hands (within a strict budget), and I can walk around it every day if I like.
Here's my garden last year in may, when the Magnolia stellata was in bloom. It's not as pretty this year, since there is a load of work going on with us renovating the facades, and the plantings next to the house in front (that's the door to my house) are temporarily removed (and deposited as big piles of soil).
The spring bulbs are finally beginning to peep out of the soil now (that I bought for almost nothing last fall, and planted in the dusk in december), loads of tulips on their way, and the magnolia buds are begining to wake up. It's heart warming.
Speaking of which, I mailed the clothes I made to Julia and Ella today, I do hope they like them (nervous)!
