A tiny little garden post

Hello my dears, Today I worked the whole day in the garden and lay completely flat on the couch! The bad thing is that in our garden every day several buckets of weeds can rip out and the next day it sprouts again everywhere! In our sandstone bed, the herbs grow with the Bux to the bet! Our rhododendrons have moved from the winter quarters in the vaulted…

A raised bed for elementary school (#DANKEsaid thanks)

According to a study published by DANKE * on the occasion of its 30th anniversary, 70% of Germans are happy to contribute to environmental protection. Since last week, it is at least 0.00001% more, because I have built a raised bed in the elementary school of my daughter with the children of the afternoon care. This was great fun and the mini-gardeners have learned a little more about…

A new bed in the garden

Finally I can look forward to single corners in our garden! It’s still pretty chaotic here, but while chaos has spread all over the garden in the last few weeks, it’s now limited to only half where the carport will soon be. Well, that’s something! In March, I pre-buttoned the completely neglected lawn in front of my studio, dug up everything, set grass stones and planted shadow plants.…

The last day of vacation comes to an end, from tomorrow we have the everyday life again! We were on the weekend with the motorhome on the road and enjoyed the great weather with friends at the campsite. A really nice little holiday on the lake, although we were not 20 minutes away from home (very convenient, there are no “When are we finally there?” – questions from…

A coffee party in the garden

* This post contains advertising and was developed in cooperation with Senseo Our outdoor kitchen has become the center of our garden. Here is grilled, set up buffets and drinks in the sink on ice. Finally, there is also coffee, which I have always lacked in gardening (because of course, I’m usually too lazy to walk up). And I could have come up with that earlier: I’ve had…

A balcony temporary

We are in the process of redesigning our balcony, as there is still a gaping hole in the barn wall about which I told you recently. Nevertheless, I tried to make it a bit cozy and improvised a bit. At the weekend comes the new wooden paneling (hopefully it will not rain, but it should, right?) And then I can start with new plants, a new table and…

DIY - Planters for the herb bed

Heidewitzka, did I not show myself here for two weeks? For me are just a variety of balcony and garden projects, all almost, but not really done (pictures follow of course). Also, you may have noticed on instagram that we have three wonderful kittens in the house who keep me busy! Today I show you a little DIY project for the garden of baby glasses, of which I…

Autumn decoration on the balcony

I used the nice weather of the last days to decorate the balcony autumn. The garden is due next, but I did not really know where to start, as overgrown as it is right now. So start with the beautiful things;). I love sitting in a cozy blanket in the fall, sitting outside in the evenings with a cup of hot cider and some candles (ok, now it’s…
