I do just love the garden.
Last year, I gave the garden a bit of a makeover, and this year, we are reaping the benefits. The girls, of course, spend the vast majority of their time in their beloved little Hytte, and its a wonderful shady spot when the sun gets too hot. But me? I just like to be outside and soak up the sun with a good book and an ice-cold drink.
Of course, with two toddlers, sitting out with a cold drink and a good book happens very rarely! More often than not I'm on my hands and knees weeding, or picking up dropped bits of rice cake or breadstick, or pottering around prettifying our little green space... or watching from the kitchen window as I get on with some housework...
We're hoping to plant some onions in our vegetable patch this week. And if you've got a veg patch, you've got to have a scarecrow, right? He's also prooving to be pretty nifty at keeping the foxes away!
This has been the first year I can really get the girls involved in the gardening. Both girls planted sunflowers this year; Heidi's sadly was destroyed by the crazy hailstorm the other day, but Ava's is thriving, and she is dedicated in watering it, sometimes a little too enthusiastically, every day.
We are zealous examiners of our Creepy Crawly Hotel, and discovered a slug, a snail and a lot of earwigs last week!
So all in all, our garden is a lovely place to be at the moment! And this weather just makes it all the more wonderful...
