Back in the garden...



This is impossible! Is it really more than two months ago that I was here? Time flies, that I know for sure!!
It was never the intention; it just happened. Spend some extra days in the office, dedicated time to some nice, new & challenging projects (will come back on that when the time is right!), holidays... Add the normal daily routine to it 'et volià', two months are gone before you know it!
 
But I hope to be back on a regular basis again.
 
Today I start with some garden pictures. Although it has been too cold lately, the last weeks there has been rain & sunshine... Perfect combination for the plants & flowers (and weeds!).
 
I actually only started working in the garden 2 weeks ago, before our holiday. Haven't been to the garden center nor any nursery yet... that is really exceptional! Never happened before :)
Last weekend I tried to clean the winter mess up... succeeded partly, still a lot of work to do.
But for now, I can show you some pictures:

 Tulips that I bought last year during my visit of the Keukenhof and
which I planted only end of January...


 
And what a coincidence... will be visiting the Keukenhof again this week. Very much looking forward to seeing all the beautiful flowers and colours.
 
Might be posting about it next week :)
 
Have a happy week & 'see' you soon again!

Gelukkig, je bent er weer! Leuk dat je naar de Keukenhof gaat, het is vast één bloemenzee en een prachtige mengeling van kleuren.

Veel plezier!

Lieve groet, Ingrid

Hello Chantal
How wonderful to live in Europe so you can visit the wonderful Keukenhof to see the tulips.
May be I will make it one day too.
Your Spring garden is blooming beautifully - can you tell me the name of the flower in your last image please?
I'm coming to France in June/July to see my daughter and granddaughters - I can't wait!

Wat fijn als je de Keukenhof zo dichtbij hebt. Zou ik ook eens heen willen en dan meteen de tulpenvelden daar bij jullie eens onder de loep nemen ook, moet fantastisch zijn. Benieuwd of je weer wat nieuwe soorten tulpen aanschaft?

Hoi Chantal,

Leuk dat je er weer bent! Je tuin staat er prima bij. Mooi de witte Rododendron. Bij ons staat deze nog niet in bloei.

Veel plezier in De Keukenhof!
