May it bring you some joy!

First and foremost, I hope you, your family and your beloved ones are all keeping well!

Most of us are in a situation of being secluded, more or less physically isolated from the outside world. Our social life is temporarily sacrificed. The Covid-19 pandemic is infiltrating every aspect of our life.

Fortunately, we live in an age where communicating with others is easy, thanks to all social networks.

That is why I would love to share with you today some pictures that show first signs of spring in our garden!

All pictures are taken by me, this afternoon.

We all need to find a way to keep ourselves busy, so Jan and me are planning to do a lot of work in our garden the next days, in preparation of summertime.

I do hope these pictures may bring you some joy.



Climbing Hydrangea at the front façade of our house, showing its fresh Spring leaves.

I so enjoyed the afternoon sun when walking along our garden path today.

Our pot planted apple trees showing first signs of blossom.

The Hellebore flowers showing their faded, but oh so beautiful colours.

What a gorgeous feeling it is to hear the birds singing their early Spring song!

Can’t wait to see our Aspirin roses growing!!!

Hydrangeas start to bloom.

Isn’t it just wonderful to notice these first signs of Spring?!

Let us enjoy the small things in life! Today more than ever!

I brought a few plum blossom branches from our orchard inside.


Dear friends, take care of yourself, your loved ones and those who need you.

Be mindful of the people around you. Be helpful to the people in need.

On my turn I will try to keep bringing you some colour in these gloomy times.

Together we’ll find a way through these difficult times.

Sending you all my warmest virtual hugs!

    It is so lovely to see the earth come alive. I enjoyed your pictures!!!

    Here in Iowa,USA everything is still dormant. I planted bulbs in the fall and they have not peeked through the ground. As we moved our house and added on to it last year, our gardens are not established. Currently we are not venturing out, except to get medication (from a drive up window) tomorrow. Our daughter is picking up a few groceries.

    Keep safe,

I just shared your blog on Facebook as I think everyone needs an uplift. Am looking at your gorgeous photos of your garden … what a wonderful and soothing tonic they are!

    Thanks again for all you do to make us whole!

    The blossoming spring reminds us that life is stronger, and even after a harsh winter it returns with full force. May we all have that strength too. Stay well, stay strong.
