A new path

Today is the day...
First heavy groundwork...breaking up the old.
Removing the hills and valleys of the old path.

Today an impressing truck delivered the new bricks.
Tomorrow and the days coming creating new path to my house,
and a path where there never has been my front door.
It looks great!

Maybe he wants to come inside.

Queen out!

To my surprise one of butterfly's has come out of his cocoon...!
Maybe you remember from last year how I saved the caterpillars and later the cocoons of the Swallowtail butterfly (Koninginnepage),
otherwise click the link to the archives.

Today, or maybe yesterday he has come out.
I had stored the cocoons all winter upstairs, where it is cold.
Last week I stored them in the garage, because there it is colder now and more dark.
So that they would not come out to soon.

Well, this one is in my opinion too soon out of his cocoon,
but there is no option to go back into the cocoon....
So I let him out for a flight.


Bibi sees the neighbour cat, who is making his daily walk through my garden.
By their looks you can tell....both are on the alert.
Bibi thinks that this is not allowed and takes the first step to confront the intruder.

Yellow blur

Lovely spring weather,
birds tweeting, like the best!
flying everywhere around....seeking, mating, inspecting the birdhouses.

Then suddenly...the first butterfly!
A Common Brimstone, (Citroenvlinder) was hovering over my garden.
In a moment he was there, the second moment he was gone.
No camera around...
So I made an impression of the yellow blur.

Doing my grocery shopping today,
I found a shopping list in my cart.
I took it out and and along with me.
Curious to see what someone else is eating for over the weekend.

Rabbit 18

Rabbit was so happy with his new jacket that he jumped for sheer joy in the air.
He danced around Owl and Hedgehog
and gave them big hugs and a kiss on both cheeks.

Rabbit 17

(continuing story Rabbit and Owl)

'Hmmm...., nice too, but the other one fits much better' said Owl.
'Try the other one again' he said, 'I really liked the one with the stripes.'

They all agreed...The striped jacket was the one.
Rabbit could not believe his eyes, that he had such a beautiful jacket.
And they were in his favorite colors!

Rabbit 16

(continuing story Rabbit and Owl)

' Now try this one', said Hedgehog with a thoughtful look.
It was a green jacket with red dots.

Rabbit 15

(continuing story Rabbit and Owl)

Then Hedgehog took some jackets.
A green one and the one he just had made.
'Try these ones,' he said to Rabbit, who was looking with grand eyes to all what was happening.
It was so very exiting!

Rabbit put on a jacket.
It was a beautiful jacket with stripes in all different colors.
'What a beautiful jacket' he thought.
It fitted exactly.

first ladybird

This morning I noticed the first ladybird this year.
Later, doing some weeding n my garden,
I noticed the second, the third and even the fourth one.

So... ladybirds think springtime is here!
No more sleeping or hibernating.

This ladybird was going for a walk and sat for a while sunbathing.

Rabbit 14

(continuing story Rabbit and Owl)

'We like to have a nice jacket', said Owl, 'a jacket for Rabbit'.
Hedgehog took a ruler, and begun to measure Rabbit and wrote some numbers on a note.

Rabbit 13

(continuing story Rabbit and Owl)

A moment later they stepped outside.
To their surprise the rain had stopped and the sun had broken through the clouds.
Sparkling shiny waterdrops on the branches and shrubs glistened in the sun rays.

When they arrived at Hedgehogs place,
he was just busy making something.
He used his own pins as a needle
and he was making a jacket.
It seemed almost done.
