Finally nice weather!

Finally nice weather! I worked four days in the garden. The flower border is enlanrged so space is created for new plants. I hate shopping but I love to buy new plants for my flower garden.

We have a large lawn infront of the house and  I decided to let the gras grow. It will save a lot of time. I sowed some (wild) flower seeds and hope it will look like this next year.

My small herb garden is made in order. Actually I only needed to replace the rosemary because it did not survived the winter. I also planted stevia, the leaves can be used as a substitute for sugar in for instance desserts.

Below is a picture of a curry plant. I bought this plant just because I thought it was beautiful, but the twigs can be used as curry flavoring in soups.  Several lettuce plants are planted …  the long-awaited rain may come.

I knew for years we had owls around the house, in the night I heard the familiar calling …oehoe. Also I found their pellets in the yard. But I had no idea what kind of owl it was. Recently, during the day I started to hear a strange kind of cry. The cry remained a mystery until last week. A client came visiting our atelier and told me, I hear a long-eared owl in your yard.

He walked toward the sound and said yes a long-eared owl, there in that hawthorn, I see him! Meanwhile, I have seen two of them, so if all goes well there will be a long-eared owl family soon!
