This was the most coziest place!
A bed of moss surrounded by firs.
A soft light came through the branches.
The moss was so thick,
that when I stepped on it, my feet completely sank in.
No sound was hearable other than forest birds
and the cracking of moving trees.
Lily sent me this screen print on a shirt, that she made from one of my sketches! Such a lovely surprise!
A first lovely letter from a dear friend who also illustrates.
Happy mail from Sandra!
Katyha from Australia sent me this pretty package!
And last but not least, another wonderful letter from Agata!
Another garden update.
We had very hot temperatures lately, this garden year is still very tricky, lots of my plants died because the wind in combination with the strong sun dries them out completely, regardless of how much I water them and because it is so dry we have extremely many mice this year. They don't eat up the plants so much, but they pull them out while making their tunnels and then the roots suffer. Also lots of chockchafer grubs and greenflies this year. So the outside garden beds do not look very good, but inside the greenhouse it is much better, because plants are more protected from the winds.
So I was able to harvest a lot of mangold where I got seeds from Lily from lisbethsnotes and just now first raspberries are ripe and soon I can pick the first cucumber. For the rest I try to be some more patient. Let's see what the coming weeks will bring! For more pictures, feel free to have a look into Lotte's and my garden album on flickr.
Have a lovely day!
