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[...]

Say what you will, but homegrown strawberries simply taste best. Period! As soon as the red fruits shine from the beds or pots, my mood rises immediately.

I know Covid has thwarted many of the plans we all had last year, and let's face it this year is still not back to normal yet. For example after a year of almost non-stop travelling in 2019 all those plans for more trips came to a screeching halt last March. And as much as it bothered me back then, looking back at the last 16 months spent at home, there are actually a ton of silver linings and good things that came out of the pandemic. (And I say that full well knowing that I am in an extremely priviledged situation with hav[...]

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. They add a much needed dose of color to every early spring garden and even though they look like sunshine, they actually don’t like hot weather but rather thrive in colder temperatures. (So I guess that’s a good thing about this week's weather forecast).Do you have daffodils in your garden or on your balcony? If yes, you may want to keep reading, because now that they[...]

Herb garden 101

Posted In: Garden
I usually don't sow herbs in spring. Mostly because I find it annoying to sow seeds and then wait days, weeks and months until I even see the slightest hint of green. However this year winter feels so long and never ending - dramatic much? - that I jumped over my own shadow, got myself a couple of terracotta pots, herb soil and seeds and started sowing. I even bought some water cress seeds just so I had one herb that has a shorter growing time than the usual basil, parsley and chives. Smart, right? I feel like gardening has[...]
