our weekend




Friday





Saturday





Sunday





Monday

Summer arrived on Friday afternoon with sunshine and 20°C, and it stayed just like that the whole long weekend. We wore shorts and sandals for the first time this season, and our winter white bodies got a slight tan. We finished a stone tiles project and shopped at garden centres; a tree, a new rododendron bush, some perennials and herbs + a couple of comfy garden chairs and a parasol. We barbequed every day - with friends and without friends. And we drank champagne to celebrate our 11 years anniversary.

Our garden has become a true paradise. It has taken a while to get there, and to get used to the fact that we own a rather big garden that needs regular tlc. We're getting more and more used to it every season, and we enjoy gardening more and more every season.

Our weekend was just perfect.
