Supper’s ready!

Here are some edibles from our own garden. We just started a vegetable garden this year, as you may have seen on our previous blog posts, and we are very pleasantly surprised with the harvest 🙂

3-year anniversary!

We can’t believe that we live here for three years already! We consider ourselves very blessed to call this magical and beautiful place our home, our safe haven. I was just looking at the very first pictures I took from our garden. Here you can see a little comparison: As you can see, a lot…

Summer fruit and flowers

We have so many beautiful flowers since our last update and lots of ripe and almost-ripe fruit! Here are our gorgeous roses in many different colors and scents: This beauty is a Lagerstroemia indica Mimie Fuchsia. Hibiscus, one of my favorites! Our peaches are almost ripe! Lots of blackberries!

First flowers and fresh paint
