Today the Gwundergarten was waiting for a woman from the garden magazine "Schweizer Garten", who wished to make a garden portrait. Once we already had to postpone the appointment because of bad weather and today too it wasn't sure whether it would rain or not.
But it worked. At least half of the garden could be photographed before rain started. Hui, I tell you, I was nervous like parents who show their newborn to their family. Hoping that nobody says: "Booooah, how unsightly."
But my fear was unfounded. Mrs Hofer was a very kind woman and I soon recognized that we work in a similar. I didn't have to feel ashamed of the rose foliage that have been humiliated by the leaf roll wasp... that's pure nature whether I find it funny or not.
In about a year the article will be in the magazine... I'm really curious about it. Thank you, Mrs Hofer, that you've visited the Gwundergarten!
By the way my serious talk with the Winchester Cathedral rose wasn't successful. Stubborn as she is, she produced again pink blossoms in my white border. Well, she won that fight and I accept it.
Because she was so kind to produce some white flowers too.
I wish I could send you the fragrance of the rose Penelope... it's gorgeous.
But at the moment my absolute favorite rose is Munstead Wood. I love its color and its smell. She has a very dark color which is hard to catch on a photo.
A new rose too, is Glamis Castle. I put it in a pot and it is still small but a beauty, don't you think so? I just had to have it because it is named after the beautiful castle in Scotland, which I liked very much. So its full of good memories.
Und wenn wir schon mal bei den Engländerinnen sind: Das ist Princesse Anne. Sie macht riesige Blüten und hat kräftige Triebe... ein Träumchen.
Talking about English roses, here's another one: Princesse Anne. She makes big flowers and has got very strong shots... just a beauty.
This is our little pond which we call mud hole. It's often full of seaweed, but salamander, frogs, dragon flies and water snails are living in it. So better not making a face mask out of this mud :o).
This rose growing on our fence is called "Tausendschön". It needed 5 years to become big and to hide the fence.
Next to"Tausendschön" the clematis "Pink Fantasy" (photo) and Silver Moon are growing.
The first fuchsia blossom has appeared to... yipiiii... its season has started.
Die Rippeldecke ist zwar noch nicht fertig, aber den Besitzer hat sie bereits gewechselt. Wann immer Noah im Haus ist, nimmt er sie gleich in Beschlag... egal, ob Frau gerade daran häkelt oder nicht. Fragt bitte nicht, wie viele Fäden er schon rausgezogen hat, noch bevor die Decke fertig ist :o). Jaaaaa, was duldet doch die Liebe nicht alles.
You may be wondering how I get along with my crochet blanket. Ehm, yes... I'm not finished yet, but it has already changed its owner. Whenever Noah is in the house, he occupies this blanket, whether I'm just crocheting on it or not. And don't ask how many thread he has already torn out... yes, I really do love this little guy.
This little Pansie is a little "Thank you" for all my friends who had crossed their fingers so that the photo shooting for the magazine could have been done. You all are just wonderful. And I like to thank all of you who are leaving here always so lovely comments... I'm always thrilled about them.
Häbet's guet u en liebe Gruess / Take care
