The Magic of the Season

We are really lucky to have such great weather still at this time of the year! We love Autumn, the colors are so beautiful and the air is so clean and pure. The trees are preparing themselves for Winter after a long season of sunshine. It is getting dark earlier and earlier, as days are…

Enlightened!

We were busy tending the garden these past few weeks, trimming the grass, planting young plants, watering, pulling weeds and making mulch. The weather has been a blessing, we have enjoyed many great days in September! Before we left Belgium, we arranged a truck to come here with some of our remaining items. Those items…

We’re back!

We are getting married here in Hungary soon – hopefully by October! – and we went to Belgium to celebrate our marriage early, in my mother’s beautiful garden, surrounded by our loved ones. So we will have two wedding dates, our Belgian wedding, which was on the 29th of July, and our Hungarian wedding, which…

Market fun and blackberries!

We went to the market with the previous owners on Sunday. We have been seeing them a lot the past few weeks, it’s so nice to stay in contact with them. We have been learning more Hungarian, so it’s nice to chat with them! At the market, they were selling a lot of plants and…

Climb for your life!

We haven’t been sitting still, these past few days! We made a climbing rack for our climbing ivy, future flowers and grapes. Here’s the climbing ivy: This is our new rack for future flowers, I think climbing roses would look beautiful here, but I don’t think the rack is sturdy enough for that. If you…

Dogs and Frogs

For today’s update, we wanted to show you the tiny baby frogs that are jumping in big quantities in our garden. They were only little, slimy black blobs in the pound a couple of weeks ago and now they are invading our garden 🙂 And we also wanted to share our crazy little puppies with…

Pears, fence and flowers

We have just harvested our first pears of the year! They may be small, but they are so delicious, sweet and juicy. I really can’t stop snacking on them, they are AMAZING! I wish I could let you taste them through the screen. We also placed a fence around our garden, because strangers keep on…

Very big garden update!

I know, I know, I have been bad about updating this blog. To reward your patience, this blog will be loaded with pictures and even videos! We haven’t been lazying around these past few weeks. We installed three arches for our kiwi vines and other creepers. And this beautiful pergola will soon be the home…

Fruit Paradise – Part two

Our baby trees are growing extremely well, we have been taking very good care of them! I will let the pictures speak for themselves, we are very happy that they all seemed to have survived the re-planting and can’t wait to share our happiness with you 🙂 Cherry tree Red Plum Tree Cherry Tree Pear…

Fruit Paradise

We bought some fruit trees last week! We now have two cherry trees, prune, apricot,  nectarine and persimmon trees and a walnut tree to add to the family! We also bought raspberry, blueberry and sea buckthorn shrubs and kiwi and grape vines. So we were busy planting those the last couple of days, as well…
