EASTER TREE

Soon it will be Easter ! I love Easter as it is the beginning of a new gardening season and…..easter eggs. Hiding easter eggs for the grandchildren and watching them enjoying looking for the eggs and finding some…they are 4,5 and 2.5 and they just don’t understand what is happening and I love to see their happy faces each time they find a chocolate egg !!!

I just finished decorating my easter tree.

WHITE FLOWERING PIERIS

There are more blooms in my garden at the moment but I’ll show them next time. Everything is growing  so fast, especially the weeds, so there is a lot of work to do in the garden at the moment, I don’t know where to start as all jobs are urgent ! That’s cos of the beautiful weather we have had and still have. It is such a joy to be able to eat on the terrace again with view on the garden, the warmth of the sun, the bee’s buzzing….

Guess what I am going to do today !?

I hope you’ll all have a great Sunday ! Enjoy your garden !
