June has passed. My two Gch is
showing the Birdie Stitchery
for June.

Thought you might like a
close-up,so here it is:-)

The new grass is growing. Some of the flowers are blooming.
Welcome to a short visit from my garden,mind you we have
a very small garden,so short it will be... lol:

Quick lunch just eaten. All the 3 numbers of Leanne`s Vignette
Magazines have arrived. Nice to be reading about Norway in her
no 3. "I was there" as I went to workclasses which she and Gail
held here. Lovely memo quilt she has made! And I`m still
reading the Distant Hours by Kate Morton. She is such an
interesting author. And waiting for the Norwegian "Quilte-
magasinet",due to arrive today.

Yes, "lovely" dirty hands!
It is great digging in the

A good scrub makes my
hands perfect for
sewing later on :-)

The pots you see with my herbs are from Holland.
My Mother bought them ages ago,nice to be useing.
I think they suit my herbs!! The chives are looking a bit
peckish,so I`ll better check the soil.

Great colour this, first time ever that I have bought the Cosoms
plant. My cousin always keeps the seeds from one year to another.
So I will try.
By the calender it is soon mid summer.
Soon our holiday is coming up. Same place as last year,
renting a little cottage down south of Oslo.
New month,new possibilities and my DH`s birthday on the 12th.
.....I think I`ll take him for a nice meal at an outdoor place
at Aker Brygge. This is a lovely place down town Oslo,by the
sea with various different places to eat.
I had a good tidying up the other day. Lots of lovely projects
crying for attention. ... I store a lot ... and enjoy the
variety! LOL

Till next time,all the best to you from me

Så koselig terrasse du har, og hage...... De hollanske krukkene er vakre og passer flott til urtehage :o)

Great post, Grethe. Your herb garden looks pretty in those pots. We have a very small deck, and about half of it is covered with pots of herbs and flowers. It sounds like you're having a busy, fun summer!

Yvette said...

Your garden is just beautiful! If you think it is small, I need to show you mine. LOL!

I love your co-ordinating pots. Blue and white look so good with the green of plants. Happy reading planting and sewing in the sun. I hope your husband has a lovely birthday.
