I had so much fun creating these patterns!
Have a good start into the week!

I don't know what it is, but my Pilea plants are really extremely productive. It seems they like my home. 5 baby plants have already new owners. One even made the long, long journey to Australia! Can you believe it, it was 2 weeks jailed in the parcel and survived!
Yesterday I parted these babies from the mother plants and it felt quite crazy to see all those pileas next to each other and more and more are following already. It gives me an idea of the nature of life.
Life is abundance!
Oh, and I forgot, it happened again! Little oxalis appeared suddenly in my pilea pot!

Land of ice

I don't know, maybe it is the heat lately, but I'm daydreaming of ice cold landscapes ;)
I wish I could visit some of my fantasy landscapes in real!

Plants + edible faces


Can you remember the baby oxalis Lotte sent to me 2 months ago?
It has grown into a happy plant!
I harvested my first Bitter Melon and tried it. I followed the cooking advice Coco gave me and I must say I love it! I am sure it is not everyone's taste, because it is very, very bitter and I think it is more suitable for a side dish than main dish, but I can't wait until the next Bitter Melon is ripe!
Further I am still preserving apricots, painted some new pots and harvested first physalis! Yay!

Simple dreams

Cucumbers + simple food!
In the last days I picked many, many apricots and made lots of jam.
You can smell it in the whole house!
We had some heavy storms and rains, it felt like the world is coming to and end.
The street in front of our house turned into a dirty river within seconds.
Yesterday I worked a lot in the greenhouse. It also rained, but it made a comfortable atmosphere inside.
My aim in life is to have a simple and natural life. I have the feeling I'm getting closer and closer to that.
Wishing you a happy Sunday!

Living room impressions

Will I ever get tired of looking at these wooly circles?

Garden update

Some time has passed since my last garden update.
What can I say. Everything is growing! I was able to harvest all onions, the first yellow courgette, peas, spinach, rucola, salads and every day now, I can pick one or two cucumbers. I have 3 different sorts. My cucumber plants are my source of pride! They are much taller than me now (picture no. 6).
On the last photo you can see my first bitter melon, where I got seeds from Coco. I am very curious how it will taste!
