Coco came to visit Pavlov or – you can also say – Eva and Olli came to visit us we had coffee and the two dogs played for hours, slept, played again and killed my bergenia field. Coco is a Great Dane and will soon be much bigger than Pavlov.
Incredibly great changes become visible when taking pictures of the same garden very early in the morning or after the rain. I’m always impressed how nature changes during the seasons or with light and weather.
After the rain
It’s still cold and we have frosty nights and mornings, but spring is coming undeniably!
Finally some snow! I would really love it unconditionally if I could trust car drivers to drive cautious and safely but I can’t. So I enjoy this light and silence while I am far away from roads. Here are some pictures from our garden and from a walk in the near forest.
My man got a wildlife camera for his birthday from his parents and now he is complaining that this is much more a present for me than for him 🙂 (In reality he is quite happy, that I deal with the crappy 90s interface of the thing).
So just for your inspiration: We have been nine people and everyone had to make a distribution for the three days together. Show the others something, invite them to create.
What a lush summer. The garden was so happy and green in August. And when the hazelnuts were ripe, Wolfgang and his squirrel-colleagues went crazy. Who finds the woodpecker in the pictures?
What you see on the first picture is a branchling of the long-eared owl (Waldohreulen-Ästling) which is a kind of a teenager owl who can already fly but still lives with its parents who feed it. We had three siblings of them in our pine trees and they made hell of a noise. When it starts getting dark they start screaming “iiiigh” every other second all over the night. I called them Ilona, Ingo and Ignaz. They are so cute and fluffy and they can turn their head 180 degrees!
What an abundance when everything starts to bloom and grow!
The tiny Japanese Cedar (Cryptomeria japonica) which I brought from the Azores and planted in October is still alive but it doesn’t (yet) grow.
Wonderfully arranged garden in the center of Furnas with a huge hot spring basin with naturally warm water. Bring your speedos!
