Someone came at the door and asked if he perhaps could pollard our trees.
His 5 donkeys love to eat and play with willow twigs and we happen to love donkeys!
We'll visit them soon ☆

Today we visited Amsterdam to pick up some Ant chairs we bought on the internet.
Such a coincidence the seller lives in our favourite neighbourhood!

We were craving for some sun so we crashed at the "Cat in the Vineyard" terrace
(De Kat in de Wijngaert)

Of course we bought some food (pies) and beautiful flowers at the nearest market!

Fabulous Fleischeri

Such an, almost perfect, successful "joint venture" with the kenderman!
A couple of months ago I bought some, early and beautiful flowering,
dwarf bulbs of Crocus fleischeri and the kenderman planted
them in terracotta (coloured plastic) pots (big smile)

Placed on an sunny outside windowsill you can provide
colder temperatures, perfect alpine circumstances and
you'll have a close-up view from the inside.

A splash of colour on a grey winter's day... I made myself a tasty salad for lunch
