Never ever would I have thought to make photos of myself from a pro. I prefer to stay behind and not in front of the camera... with good reason. But the selfies in my author portrait didn't look professional and so I had a little fight with myself and finally found the courage to do it the right way: with make-up artist and professional photographer.
Im Nachhinein muss ich sagen, dass ich mir die schlaflose Nacht hätte sparen können, denn es war alles halb so wild. Das lag vermutlich an den beiden Profis, die einfach wussten was sie taten. Wer eine tolle Fotografin sucht, wende sich einfach an Carole Fleischmann... bei ihr ist man gut aufgehoben.
I can't remember why I was so nervouse about it, photographer and make-up artist really did know their business and I had nothing else to do than standing/sitting there and smile. :o) Thank you so much Carole Fleischmann. At the end you were right, Carole: it was fun.
But pssst... I still prefer to work in my garden. Did you know, that I never wanted snake's head (Fritillaria meleagris) in my garden. I didn't like them at all... must have been because of their name, now I find them rather sweet.
Also the bishop's hat (Epimedium) are cute... so small but such beauties.
The Helleborus are still in flower...
... I've got one or the other in my garden :o).
No, I'm not searching for oil. That's the new way of weeding.
It may look dangerous, but you don't need a weapon licence for it.
Yes, I confess it's my favorite garden tool at the moment.
Sorry, this is no adventours foot bath. It's nothing less than a survival camp for tadpoles.
Rescued in the last second from hungry Salamanders, dozens of tadpoles swim now in the blue sea (well, we don't have to tell them, that it is only an old cat toilet they are swimming in, don't we). I hope, we somehow bring them all up, so that we can let them free in our pond.
Spring time, isn't it always gorgeous? The fragrance, the sun, the flowers, the birds... birds?
Huuuaaargh, dear Mr woodpecker, the landing has looked better, in other occations.
Well, but the take off is quite beautiful. Well done.
And this stinky heap was my job for today. I know, it doesn't look very impressive, but when you have to carry it away by yourself and spread it over the borders in your garden, the heap is massive. Seems as if I have aged last winter, outch.
Topped lavender... ou, didn't I say lately, that I wouldn't buy this lavender any more because it isn't hardy? That's the bonus of age: I can't remember :o). And at the moment it looks rather nice on our terrace.
Those sweet little worms belong to a fern. I love their show of rolling out. This alone is a good reason to plant fern in everyone's garden.
Oha, Mr. Woodpecker is back and has spotted me.
With this beauty I wish you all a great Sunday and a good start into a new adventorous week. Take care.
