The garden in June, lots of flowers dispite the long very windy days.
The white poppies suffered the most from the wind.
My white foxclove developed an odd flower on the top, does anyone know why that happened?
Finally, this is where I spend the rest of my time in the garden.
Poppet has grown into a beautiful cat, she was found abandoned in the village, starving and covered in ticks and fleas 2 years ago. Just look at her now!
She is the sweetest cat.
A great mouser.
Comes in every night.
Is a daft as a brush, still a kitten at heart.
And makes me laugh every day!
When I try to get photos of finished quilts its usually the wind that hinders me.
This time Bobs took over.
and thought this was just for him.
Its a quilt I made from fabric I won last year in a journal quilt compitition.
The final shipment!
Britannia Lanes of Devon, britannialane.co.uk
Cant fault them, they were amazing, super fast, super efficiant, super helpful and everything single item arrived in perfect condition!
Then they were off to København.
This winter was long and harsh, the very strong winds blew the top of my thatched roof, it was a sorry state and leaked and the rain poured in around the chimeny stacks.
I tried to call the thatcher chap but after a couple of failed attemts asked my good friend Maria to call him for me as my Danish is poor.
A few days later he arrived with a truck load of thtach and wood. We got by using broken Danish, German and English.
It only took him a day and a half to finish the job!
I cant belive its done, I have been so worried when it rains and the water poured down the walls.
Wow, the roof has never looked this good.
The tulips were amazing this year.
I had to move them in the fall and was not sure how they would do.
I am lucky that the soil is light, sandy and well drained.
and the tulips seem to love it.
My sister, Susan and I visited the ARoS Aarhus art museum when she came for a short stay earlier this year.
Views from “Your Rainbow Panorama”
“Your Rainbow Panorama” runs all the way rount the roof of the building giving you wonderfully colourful views of Aarhus City.
I loved these sculptures made from plastic cutlery.
And this peaceful painting.
And this crazy huge fabric art!
I had a great time with my sister, I hope she comes to stay again soon.
These beautiful birds came to feed on the apples we put out for all the birds, they came several times to feed.
And another beautiful bird who came to visit.
I needed exta greenhouse space but could not afford a new big polytunnel and saw this one on Ebay, its 6 mtrs x 3 mtrs and it was half price with minamal shipping from the UK, it arrived 3 days after the order was placed!
I added extra posts to make sure it does not blow away with the high winds we get here and dug over the middle before I put the plactic cover on as it was easier to throw the turfs out the sides as I wanted to use them to secure the plastic cover later.
It was nice to see all the lovely snowdrops while I worked.
Once it was all dug and prepared I just popped the top on it was as easy as that! It has lots of velcro ties to secure it to the frame and I dug in the bottom flap to the soil for extra strengh.
I am very pleased with the result, its full of my summer flower seedlings at the moment. The cover in a green mesh covered with plastic that my sister says ends up a mass of holes in a few years but you can buy replacement covers for very little money from the company so I am not worried about that.
We took a trip to the north coast where the North Sea meets the Baltic.
William, Parnika and Alan.
It was a stormy day.
William used one of my quilts to keep warm.I always bundle a load of quilts into the car when we take a trip, you never know when you will need one.
Parnika braving the weather.
