springtime!

The winter is now officinally over even though this year we didn't really had much of a winter I think we had barely 3 nights with frost. Even my perannials of last summer survived outside and started to bloom in February!!  Amazing nature. 

Hydrangea, hortensia

Peaony, Pioenroos

Childrens part of the garden " way" back from the house on the hill

I has been very quiet here lately, and I must admit it is due to all kind of factors in my life. All my creativity is gone, but slowly coming back. 

I can enjoy my garden again, sow flowers for ecoprinting get as many for as low costs. 

zaaien, plantjes

Tagetes and  Anthirrrinum majus, (for the kids) 

2 weeks ago I had a special evening : a group of people  whom want to make something floral everytime, no one is teacher, just to think of something else in the floral field and keep updated. 

The theme was floral light and i wil show you a small detail of it. 

viltalakim, floral , weaving,

Enjoy your day and I hope to post more regular from now on again.

Spring

Finally a new post.. a  busy time lately. Today I started with a  walk in my garden with my camera, making pictures of the different flowers I saw. Trying not to see all the tasks I still need to do in the garden, hihihi    

It always amazes me how fast nature awakens sometimes.. I love it!

Amazing

Nature

One of my colleagues took some branches along which are a piece of art I think.

plant, takken,

Ever seen this ? It is called Euonymus phellomanus  or Kardinaalshoed  in Dutch.

Found on the net: First collected as seed from China in 1894, Euonymus phellomanus has small inconspicuous flowers in spring, followed by vivid lipstick-pink fruit in autumn, which split to reveal conspicuous orange seeds.
Another notable feature is the corky, winged stems which are particularly eye-catching once the leaves fall in in winter. Euonymus phellomanus will fruit reliably as a single, specimen plant even when quite young. A superb, ornamental garden plant!

The structures are amazing don’t you think?

My pictures don’t do justice to it, but hope you will get the idea

For today this is my workspace:

viltalakim, felting, vilten, wool, wol, buiten, tuin

It feels so good to be working outside…  end the feeling gets even better when I hear this  at the radio:” the weather today will be grey , cloudy but in Limburg (my area)  sometimes sun… ” well to be honest I had sunshine all day :)

At my 2 terrace tables  ca 1 kg of carded Swedish Gotland wool… placed them in 2 layers.. raw wool will follow soon after I picked up the kids from school

viltalakim, kim nijsten, ruwe wol, rawwool, wol, lente

Feeling a super lucky girl.. ahum woman, hihihi

Fingers crossed I  will be able to  finish with placing the wools, before darkness.. the wetting part will be a task for tomorrow I think…  let’s hope I can finish this huge piece on my own..
