Not for seamstresses

We have a few old singer sewing machine tables in our garden. As my husband is a minimalist at heart, he wanted to take the things apart to make them appear a bit lighter. This means that there are several spear parts that look rather good on their own. The round ones are just perfect as garden stepping stones!

It runs in the family

My mum loved to decorate, both at home and in the garden. I am just like her and all her decorations are in use in my home and garden. A case in point are three metal ampels that mum used to have flowers in. As it is really windy in Vårkulla I decided to decorate the ampels with mum's little metal birds and some of the fake chrystals that used to hang in her living room ceiling light.

If you have nothing to do

We happy garden owners always have lots to do. Today we did a general clean up in the garden and everything looks rather great.



And even some of the parts of the yard where we haven't yet done any gardening look great, too.

Busy month

Everything happens at once. First it was really cold and nothing grew. Now it's too hot to be in the garden and everything flowers at the same time. This is the time I worry there will be nothing left in August but there always is, of course.

What a difference a little rain makes

In four days our garden has grown into a jungle! I love it but feel that I should have been here to witness every step of the miracle. Now I just see the results. A gardener is never satisfied.

Summer opening

The first poppy started flowering today. For me this means that the summer has (finally) begun. There are (and have been) a lot of other flowers already but for some reason poppies do it for me.
