A day in the garden













The sun comes out in November and suddenly it feels like April. I bring my kids out in the garden to give me a hand and clean it up a bit. We rake leaves from the plum tree, run the lawn mower one last time before Mr Winter will do his graceful entrance. We harvest some beets and baby carrots that later are cooked to perfection as a complement to our fish gratin.

The wild kittens are now comfortably going in and out as they wish to everyone's delight and relief. They are so cute climbing trees (Maya) to the farthest top, hiding in the flower beds (Izzy) and rolling around in the dirt in our newly weeded and nicely raked garden beds. It is a good day and I feel very lucky when I sit down with a cup of coffee to enjoy some hooky time outside before the sun disappears behind the tree tops. Life is good.

PS A big thank you to my Nelly Bo who was the person behind the camera lens this day, taking all the pictures. I think she is a natural behind the camera... (I say, sitting here with a big smug face of pride!!!)

  1. A wonderful day! I miss the days spent in the garden with my girls (too big now, 'they' think).I need to pick the last of my carrots (canning beef stew today) and the peppers, before Mr. Frost makes his appearance. The rest should fare okay for a while. Nothing better than a spot of hooky outdoors! (I see that beautiful crochet basket again!)

  3. I see happiness and contentment with life in all of these pictures. Our garden has been done for a long time and we have even had our first light snowfall for the year. It's time to settle into a cozy house for the winter.
    Blessings,
