Garden update

End of May the never ending autumny spring turned into Summer, creating lots of green to grow and colours to emerge. Some of it has come and gone already, but right now the honey bees (and some solitary (bumble)bees are feasting in our garden. Currently we’re at peak roses (some of which we didn’t cut in time and therefore decorate the apple tree). In contrast to last year, when there was no rain for weeks and weeks in Spring, the new plants are growing and blooming (and of course completely forgot the names of the plants).

Two baby coots

The coots (assuming it’s the same pair occupying ‘our’ waterway) have their second go at raising offspring this season. They failed two months earlier as the reed hadn’t grown yet, providing shelter for the little ones. Nature skipped Spring and plunged us all into Summer a few weeks ago. The reed is fully grown now so I guess at least one of these two will successfully grow up.

A proper Mother’s Day

Ingredients:
– artwork by Daughter
– another piece of art by Daughter
– wrapped in gift paper designed by Daughter
– pain au chocolat for breakfast
– 24°C just for one day
– installing hammock in garden seconds before rain (and knowing it will only provide pleasure for today)
– enjoying an hour in the hammock
– sowing the gifted seeds in the garden just before more rain

And other regular Sunday stuff like clearing Daughter’s play area, listening to a fun episode of Science Vs and eating lunch and dinner.

What a difference a week makes

No snow. No ice. Sunshine and 17°C instead. Daughter came down this morning wearing her bathing suit and swimming vest. A tad optimistic, though I totally admire her anticipation of what’s around the corner.
