A took some photos in the backyard the other day. Normally, I take most of the photos so it's welcome to see something familiar through a slightly different perspective. I tend to lose myself in all the details, whereas A is good at activity photos. The flower details in this post are mine, the rest are A's. We all like to be in the backyard, but when we are down there all of us, and we actually want to get something done, and not just play with the kids, it's sometimes more chaotic than quiet.
It's growing down there!
The flower in the top photo is a favourite this year – it's a sage with tiny flowers in douce rose.
We are getting more and more happy with the backyard (pretending it's a real garden, I guess). It's so good to be outside and still at home
Look at the summer flowers we sowed in the backyard less than 2 weeks ago. You know that I'm still dreaming of a house at the countryside with a big garden. What we do in the backyard is very limited and simple - but still a little wonder each year. And the Vietnamese pho-soup is with the basil from the windowsill that has now come up for real.
Grow my first ever veg garden for city kids looks like a nice project.
Hope your weekend was good!
