New plants

 
 
 
 
My father surprised me with new plants, that I repotted yesterday morning. The little fig and olive tree got new hand-painted pots. We also made a long forest walk, there was a warm breeze which was really nice. Today it is rainy and grey. Perfect for staying inside and taking up some needle work.
Mein Vater überraschte mich mit neuen Pflanzen, die ich gleich gestern am Morgen umgetopft habe. Der kleine Feigen- und Olivenbaum bekamen einen neuen handbemalten Topf. Wir waren auch lange im Wald, um das gute Wetter auszunutzen. Der Wind war richtig angenehm warm. Heute ist es grau und regnerisch. Perfekt um sich's drinnen mit etwas Handarbeit gemütlich zu machen.

Oh, such a lovely surprise! My fig tree lost all her leaves allready, yours is still so pretty with the yellow and green. Here the sun is shining, a wonderful day but cold!

We used to have a figue tree in our garden but the rabbits we had back then liked it too :(
But i'm planning on planting a new one outside!
As Lisa says.. a wonderful day in Belgium! And now in the afternoon, warm enough to sit outside and enjoy it :)
