The blue-tits have young in the nestbox.
The parents are flying with lots of little caterpillars and other small creepy things.

Its poppy time. Everywhere they are out...!
Beautiful red dots on the verge of the roads.
These ones decided to grow between the tiles of my terrace.
I carefully protected them to be sure that they would make it.

You never know with poppy's.
I sowed them in my garden...lots of seeds.
Not one came, or yes some came up... but were eaten by the snails or slugs.
A while later they were all gone.

Coals out!

I was just in time.
I wanted to get something from behind the house 
and then suddenly I noticed that the young baby-coals were planning to go out!
I ran inside to grab my camera.

I saw the first one fly out, flying into a nearby tree,
and than the second peeking out...flying into the arch...
Then the third coal and so on and on.
one after another...
the photos explain the rest..
I was so happy to be witness of the all the little coals flying out!

The coals have young,
flying to and fro,
in and out,
back and forth
to the nest.

Arch of white

The clematis is twirling around the arch
and has made an amazing delightful view!
Even the fragrance of sweet vanille is filling the air.
Such beauty!

Unicorn 03

Continuing story Unicorn

One day Unicorn had come out of the pond.
He sat on a bench next to the pond enjoying the sunshine.
But what was more astounding he sat there knitting!

Bleu cloud

For days I am enjoying the shade of the Wisteria,(Blauwe regen)
Its rather warm these days and its lovely to find shelter in the shade of the Wisteria.
Its like sitting under a bleu cloud.
The fragrance of the flowers is mesmerising.
I am hearing a concert of buzzing sounds of Bees, Bumbles and other buzzing insects above my head...

02 Unicorn

Continuing Story Unicorn

It is quiet in the pond.
No movement in the water.
Unicorn did not show up.
For weeks he was hiding.

While eating at a restaurant near the sea with a friend,
we got company of those lovely bird-friends who loved to eat a little with us!

The grass in my garden needs some cutting.
But because of the crocus and snowdrops, the leaves have to die a bit before the grass can be cut.
The daisies and violets, dandelions and other flowers have a great time now.
