My Weekend

garden photos

What a lovely weekend I have just had.

I visited my parents and we all had the best time together. As I almost always do during these special visits, I took a stroll through the garden. It looks beyond amazing!

Of course, I took a few pictures for you to enjoy!

Garden Faces

I am sending you my warmest greetings from my Mom’s garden.

Yes…I am still here…house sitting for my parents…and it seems that it will last some more days.

If you wondered what I am actually doing here then I’d like to let you know that I am relaxing and enjoying every single minute of these days.

It’s so lovely and calm here.

Actually, it’s kind of a vacation for me – a couple of days being spent off my usual routine.
 
 

Yes, most of the time I look like this.

Then, when I feel like doing something more productive, I grab my camera and find myself a project to shoot and to show you.

This time I’ve decided to chronicle my Mom’s new addiction – recently she’s been really fond of acquiring various creatures with eyes for her garden.

And I love it.

Well, I’m her daughter.
 
 

I remember the times when my Mom used to say she never wanted to have things like these in her garden.

Ever!

But then, one special day, someone gave her one of these guys sand I suppose it pushed some major button in her brain that she didn’t even know existed and things started to happen really fast…
 
 

Every time I come to visit I find two or three new pieces of this rapidly growing collection.
 
 

Today I’ve found out that of all the animals or creatures frogs are most frequent here.
 
 

With mushrooms being a close second.
 
 

And snails – there’s a lot of those, too.
 
 

Look, another one.

Oh, I really love the attitude of the carried frendo.

Who knows where they’re going.
 
 

And this mole – he seems to be pretty pleased by having the opportunity to live in this garden as well.
 
 

Another pair of mushrooms.

They have already grown perfectly into this environment.
 
 

Mama frog and a baby frog.

Cute!
 
 

Don’t get scared.

It’s just a tree.

An old and smart tree.

It gives lectures every other day.

I sit and listen.
 
 

Dad likes to know everything about the weather by just looking out of the window.

Thanks to this helpful and colorful buddy, the direction of wind is clear.
 
 

I am completely in love with this little one.

He’s just lovable.
 
 

It’s clear – Mom adores frogs.

Don’t they look like real ones?

In fact, I gave my Mom this present and she loved it.

At least she said so…
 

Well, dear friends, I hope you enjoyed this crazy, head-spinning tour.

And of course, there’s more colorful and lovely stuff coming soon.

With love,

Petra
 

Nuts And Apples

Time to pick nuts and apples Ladies and Gentlemen.

Of course if you are lucky enough to own the right bushes and trees.

Although I don’t possess such lovely stuff yet, I know the right people.

And that pays off.

This is a tiny bit of the huge garden we’ve had the opportunity to visit today.

Looks gorgeous, doesn’t it?

The nuts were waiting for us to be picked.

potato-pagacs

For helping, we happened to get these teeny potato loaves with sesame seeds on top.

They tasted fantastic!

And then…

… this arrived!

Yummy!!!

grapes

And some sweet ripe grapes for dessert.

What a wonderful day this has been!

My Mom’s Magical Garden Sneak Peek

My Mom is a hugely inspirational person. She is an avid gardener, talented painter and the best Mom. I love her very much.

It is so much fun to be around her.

There are loads of wonderful stories about her I could share and I surely will.

Today I just took a sneak peak into her gorgeous flower garden. More pics of her exceptional magic powers coming later…

These smell really sweet, they lift my spirits indeed.

And yes, you are right, that is a rabbit in the back. Though Mom wanted to keep her garden for the flowers only, it is slowly transforming into a fairy land, which I absolutely adore.
