i Need a lot of milk in my coffee...
(no sugar though)
spring finally is here,
in my garden:
pulsatilla and a small species of tulips
every year it is fun to watch the buds of the chestnut... my Kids planted it when they were Little (about 20 years ago), but as it is in the middle of shrub, is has not grown up to more than about 1,20 meters;) it doesn´t give up though:)
as i´m not too tidy at the front door also, i get joy each year from a hepatica in a cobblestone gap:
on my walk i see the
nature exploding... from one day to the next:
gazillions of pilewort
(did you know you can add their leaves to a salad, before they bloom - later on they are slightly poisonous)
and Wood anemones...
but my beloved beech trees are crying, literally:
after a Tornado last year lots of their branches were cut down
and all was left is this:
and of course the Wood workers did not Close the wounds,
so the spring Juices are running down the trunks, dripping really...
not sure if they will survive or bleed to death.
it is heartbreaking.
this is how they looked before the Tornado:
again, a Piece of Cloth which got the leftover paint from stamping and brayering on its surface, ended up free embroidered and sewn together to form a pouch ...
it will hold my travel guide for next week...
so: my next tuesday post will be in two weeks, on 19th
help me Keep fingers crossed... i had a nightmare: i dreamed my camera gave up working... i couldn´t click the button any more... Horror!! i think there will be a lot to see in Barcelona (i would have to buy a new camera there!!)
i´m in the midst of planning... if you have a good tip, feel free to share it in the comments:)
