Blossom in the garden

I hope you had a nice day.These days i have been working outside in the garden.
My little garden is now bigger, i have added one more part.There are three more parts left to do. Today i  did not do any gardening, but...Ironing.Not my favorite but it has to be done.It has been a hot sunny day today, this morning  while i was driving to go shopping, i saw the trees in blossom ,the yellow colza fields. Soon we will have the blue flax fields, here it's the speciality of our region"linen" , i love linen clothes they are  nice to wear in summer.I went to a linen clothes shop today and i saw some beautiful colors! dresses long skirts... Next time i try to get some pictures!
I added a pale yellow honeysuckle.
Before,  i painted all the "claustras" (but you can't see any color, because i wanted them to stay in a light color)
As you can see it is longer now, when i finish, i will sow some grass just in front of the garden.
This is a cherry-tree.Ilove the pink color, but unfortunately it does not stay long in blossom.
We call it " black eyed Suzane"
I hope you enjoyed the little tour of my garden.

Hello Catherine! I LOVE your garden and that little fence in the front of's beautiful. You've done a lot of work making it bigger but it's worth it for all the beautiful flowers you've added. I wondered if that was flax in the field in one of the pictures you had posted before...I LOVE the blue when it's in bloom! I'll be looking forward to seeing pictures of the linen clothes in that shop...oooo la la!!! Have a wonderful evening my friend....Maura:)

Oh my oh my, sweet Catherine, today I received your Giveaway box. Thank you so so much for all the splendid treasures! Your lilac frames are so so sweet, still thinking about the perfect spot for these two lovelies. The pretty tags, the gorgeous bag, the baking set, the baking form, everything is really gorgeous. Thank you once again from the bottom of my heart, I'm still smiling ear-to-ear. You keep an eye on your mailbox next week, I will send you a little bit of happiness from the Netherlands to thank you for all your sweetness.

Now about your post, I love cherrie blossom and I love Suzanne, in the Netherlands we call it also 'Anne met de mooie ogen' {Anne with the beautiful eyes}

Wishing you a bon soir et un splendide Mercredi! xxxx

What a beautiful garden you have! Love the flowers, and the cherry tree is gorgeous as well. Just lovely! Thank you for sharing. We are in a rainy season again. Sunshine today & tomorrow, then rain for at least four days after that. So weary of wet weather, but I'll enjoy sunshine while we have it! -Tammy

I've been having so much fun looking around your Monde. Your garden is coming along much faster than mine and is very pretty - I don't even have dirt yet! (BUT, I DO have a stone wall.) I think it is wonderful that you are going to put the electric fence up to keep the baby bunnies safe. They must be bigger by now. Did it work? Are they eating your garden? I know that we must have wild bunnies but I've never seen any. Therefore, I keep my own to cuddle and love. Speaking of, I LOVE LOVE LOVE that series of Beatrix Potter "movies"!!!!

Your pictures of France are beautiful and I love the blue and white sea side post! Perfecto!

The photo of you as a little girl on the phone is precious and brilliant! Sweet and nostalgic and funny! Oh, I really enjoyed the post with the old fashioned gardening pastels. I just enjoyed looking around. We have so much in common. Thank you for spending time with me In The Sunny Spot!

Love, Katy Noelle

Lo encontré!!! muchas gracias Catherine por dedicarme siempre algún mensaje.
No he pensado nunca en hacer un blog,creo que no dispongo del tiempo necesario para hacerlo,mi niña es pequeñita todavía y quiero dedicarle ese tiempo a ella hasta que crezca,además no sé yo si estaría muy capacitada para hacerlo...quizás con el tiempo!!!Muchas gracias por acordarte de mí!!!
