In the afternoon

Our little land, slowly turning green. Amazing. The first signs of onion, potatoes, beans and beetroots peeking out. Maybe we can eat more that the chives next time we’re here.

60 years old now, sweet mother.

    I wish comments would mention where they are. It would be so fun to know, especially when they are talking about their summer weather.

    It was sunny here in Portland, Oregon, yesterday. Back to cloudy and grey today.

    PS: Love the camel coffee mugs!

  11. Meg Brookman says:

    That should have said ‘commenters’. Too busy thinking about rhubarb, I guess.

    Gorgeous photos! It looks like your in for an amazing season at your summer home!

    I would love to have a garden like that, but I don’t own any land. Besides, I lack the confidence. I hope you’re able to eat with abundance soon!

    anaïck, no the rhubarbs where there when we bought the house. We have sooo much of it. This morning we had rhubarb compote for breakfast. And I just filled a whole bag of them to take home to Gothenburg for rhubarb pie, rhubarb lemonade and rhubarb cream. Just love rhubarbs!

    Thats a great little garden you’ve got there, it makes my sandy soil look quite sad.

    your mother sure looks like she’s not a day older than 45!

  17. freckleface says:

    The garden looks amazing and your mum looks amazing. I think the Swedish air must have some special ingredients in it to make everything beautiful.

  18. Elisabeth says:

    hearttypat, you’re making my mother happy :)

  19. Sarah says:
