It was a good year to us, the year 2018. We are thankful for all the beauty, the friends, the joy and the happiness. Of course there were some sad things as well, but that's life, isn't it?
Spring has brought back color into the garden.
This year I had more vacation than in other years and so I could enjoy writing in the garden. It was not just my favorite place as you can see.
In April my fifth novel "Der Pub der guten Hoffnung" was published. Next spring it shall be released as an audiobook.
Im Mai besuchten wir die Chelsea Flower Show. Es war wie immer der Wahnsinn. Ich werde nie müde, die tollen Gärten zu bestaunen, die jeweils in so kurzer Zeit aus dem Boden gestampft werden.
In May we were at the Chelsea Flower Show. As always it was absolutely amazing what the gardeners and designers created in such short time.
Nun ja, der eigene Garten... nicht ganz so kreativ, aber zumindest grün :). Der diesjährige Tag der offenen Gartentür für Freunde und Bekannt im Juni habe ich sehr genossen.
Well, my own garden… not as creative but at least green :o). In June I enjoyed the open garden door for our friends and relatives very much.
We always found time to play and cuddle with our Noah. He is such a joy.
Sadly Gandalf passed away this June but I'm glad that he hadn't to suffer long. I hope that he and Emma are together again. I miss them both but I'm glad that I removed their enclosure quickly because else I would have been tempted to give some other bunnies a home. But to be honest: it's not a pleasure to muck out their stable in winter time.
This sight just made me sad and I was happy that soon something new changed it.
Roses and Hydrangeas were lovely this year.
After work, hang out with Noah.
Es war ein traumhafter Sommer, aber …
It was a summer to dream of, but ...
… much too dry. So we had to help out animals and plants with water.
Even Noah couldn't spot any rain cloud.
Another highlight were our holidays in the Golden Valley beneath the Black Mountains. It's the place where my heart feels at home.
Hehe, no my hubby doesn't belong to those who love to hug trees. He just made me a favour and showed how big this old tree is.
While his dad does the grocery, dogy takes a well deserved nap.
And then we had to say goodbye again… every time it is getting harder for me.
But a little piece of England entered my garden this fall. It is bigger than the bunnies' home before, but at least I don't have to muck it out and instead of carrots and salads, cookies and scones will be munched here.
And finally it is furnished. I'm looking forward to do my writing here.
Mittlerweile haben wir Winter. Hmm, zwar noch ohne Schnee, aber hin und wieder zumindest mit ein bisschen Frost.
Meanwhile it is winter. Well, without snow till now, but at least with some frost.
Ihr Lieben, ich wünsche Euch allen einen guten Rutsch in ein gesundes, spannendes, buntes, fröhliches und einfach zufriedenes 2019.
That's it, 2018. I wish you all a Happy New Year. Stay well and have a healthy, creative, exciting, funny and just content 2019.
