Everybody needs a Happy Place... or two. Right? In meinem Fall ist mein Happy Place ganz eindeutig mein Garten zu Hause. Auch wenn er, wie jeder andere Garten auch, seine unschönen und weniger gepflegten Ecken hat (Gerümpelhaufen hinter der Hütte anyone?), und mir regelmäßig Rückenschmerzen bereitet, weil das Unkraut einfach immer schneller wächst als der Rest, weiß ich doch absolut zu schätzen was für ein großes Glück es ist, einen eigenen Garten zu haben.  Was aber tun, wenn man in einer Stadtwohnung nur[...]

DIY Flower Arranging – How to make your Peonies last

Posted In: Flowers | Garden
Believe it or not, but thanks to the cold and dreary weather we had in April, peony season is still going strong!! While the ones in my garden are unfortunately already withered this year (they are a very early variety) you can still get a bunch of peonies almost everywhere. Certainly at your local florist and I'm pretty sure also in super markets or grocery stores.  Should you be lucky enough to have a later blooming variety in your garden, or want to buy some in store, here are a few tips and tricks on how to make th[...]

Sunshine in the Flower Bed – Daffodils

Posted In: Flowers | Garden
Sending you some sunny flowers to brighten up this dreary Monday. Where did the sun go? Personally, I think daffodils are the happiest flowers out there.

Memories on paper

Posted In: Flowers | Lifestyle | Nature | Prints
Having spent a whole lot of time at home this season, I’ve been finding myself looking through old photos of places I've traveled to in previous years. These days, I’ve been exchanging my travels for long walks through the countryside and time spent in my garden, so having these photos is a real blessing.  I have loved photography for years. Be it shooting weddings and portraits, taking photos during travels or simply -and more recently- of the countryside and/or my garden. Having photos printed on expensive cotton[...]

Spring’s just around the corner

Posted In: Flowers | Nature
It's the end of January so even the smallest sign that spring is coming is very much welcomed. So now, that the freezing temps and the remaining snow are slowly but surely disappearing, I got myself some sping blooms from our local gardener and got to work.  It's not much but, at this point even some simple primroses and hyacinths make me very happy! I hope you enjoy them too.  Fun fact, there are about 400 different types of primroses and almost all of them are very resilient. Most can even be planted out into t[...]
