Psst... not so loud, the red guy is still asleep... he had a busy night. Let's got outside.
The bunnies are already up and enjoying breakfast.
Some were wearing flowers in their hair, my bunny Emma wears parsley in her snout. And no... don't get so nasty thoughts like a roasting pan and an oven... else she is even getting paler as she already is.
Would you like to see how the Gwundergarten is getting awake? Then follow me.
I had to hang up the bird feeding station up into the tree, because our little head gardener has found a new hiding place: the big hosta leaves. He waited down there until a bird landed near to his snout. But this has to be stopped and the birds are safe again.
Miss Bateman squints into the morning light.
The yellow of this peony starts to fade.
This is how it looked some days ago. Sadly I can't remember its name.
The wild garlic has a severe halitosis... well, this can happen in the morning.
But here it smells lovely. The honeysuckle smells as if it just had a nice long shower.
Elke, das ist eine alte Bekannte von Dir. Ich freu mich schon wie blöd auf die Blüte. Das Röschen hat mächtig an Höhe gewonnen und hat überall Blüten angesetzt *freu*.
Elke, do you remember that sweetheart? I can't wait to see its flowers. It has gained much in height and is full of buds *hurra*.
This is quite a typical construct by Mrs Gwundergarten: on those three dead thujas were growing now the rambler rose Long John Silver, a climbing hydrangea and an ivy, which I can't convince to grow somewhere else (we really had quite a discussion about that).
The sun hasn't arrived at the terrace yet... this let the rose Harlow Carr even look nicer. Last year it was very close in ending up in the compost. It grew so weak and looked desastrous, but now it's a joy for the eye and the nose. Sometimes one should be a bit more patience.
Poppy Patty's plum. I searched sooooooo long after it, finally I found them in a garden centre, then the slugs fell over them and destroyed all, then again I searched sooooooo long, found it again and this time I planted them first into a pot... safe from the Slugs. And when they are bigger, they will be planted out into the garden.
Morning view from the terrace.
The white border... I give up... again some blue has sneaked in and I really haven't planted those columbines.
Ein Ärgernis für mein Mann, der Rasen mähen muss, aber Frau Gwundergarten mag ihre "Schlüfwägli".
A bit of an annoyance for my hubby, who mows the lawn, but Mrs Gwundegarten loves the way trees and roses are hanging down into the paths. It gives the garden a romantic touch.
Haven't looked after it but found it anyway: a lilac. After ten years I smelled a lovely fragrance between a hazelnut and a prunus cerasifera. My gaze wandered up and saw a lilac in full flower... this happened last year. This year it hasn't bloomed yet. It's hard to understand how I could have missed a big tree like this in my garden... well, I guess you can imagine now, how wild the Gwundergarten really is.
A bit further on in this hedge I found another honeysuckle, which I haven't planted but is very welcome too.
Oh, Rose Fimbriate blinks into the morning light too. Good Morning!
Just beside it, a wild geranium stretches its weary limbs.
So, und nu lass ich mal die Sonne die Beleuchtung übernehmen und quatsche nicht mehr dazwischen:
And now I won't talk that much anymore and let the sun take over the light effects:
The sun really know her job, don't you think so?
This columbine is a very dark one. It nearly looks black when the sun doesn't shine on it directly.
First Iris in flower :o).
And now we are back at the start. Let's have a look whether Mr. Tomcat has finally got up or not.
Well... not really. He plays dead cat.
Gooooooood moooooooorniiiiiing, Noah :o).
Oh well, a good morning looks a bit different, I guess.
A bit of stretching and now I'm ready, Mrs Gwundergarten. Let's go into the garden.
Usually it looks like this, when I walk through the garden. But anyway, I didn't have to enjoy my garden tour alone this morning, because you, dear blog reader, accompanied me. Thank you very much for that.
Ja, ich weiss, ich soll froh sein, ist niemand zu schaden gekommen, ist ja nur Blech und das kann man reparieren... alles klar und trotzdem ärgerlich... zumal wir uns im Büro schon darüber lustig gemacht hatten,wer wohl zuerst in den Zaun hineinfahren würde... räusper... das wäre dann wohl ich gewesen... wie peinlich. Aber ich trage es, wie wir Frauen das immer tragen: mit einem breiten Lächeln im Gesicht.
Less fun was yesterdays mishap. I just say watch out those nasty wooden fences, which tend to jump right into your car. Yes, they are really mean and sneaky... and such a fence kiss can become rather expensive, as I have learnt today *sigh*. I'm really happy to have a car insurance. I know, it's just a thing and it can be repaired...but it's annoying anyway. It happened when I came out of the office and guess what: we already talked about that fence a long while ago in the office and made fun of it, who would be the first one to drive into it... well, that would be me, I guess... how embarassing. But I take it as women do take such things... with a big smile.
Und mit diesem "Knaller" beende ich den heutigen Post und wünsche Euch allen noch eine gute Woche.
And with this bump I end this very long post and wish you all a lovely week.
En liebe Gruess / Take care
