April is for...

1. Crazy Magnolias!

The white blossoms seem to cover the whole tree and it becomes the center piece of the garden. The scent is really great too, shame it can't be captured...

2. 'Plastic' strawberries, the ones that turn up in supermarkets before you can get any from local gardeners. They aren't too bad, still not as nice as the ones that are picked from your own patch a little bit later, well, in July ;)

3. Little seedlings that have the potential to turn into something biiiiig.
(The top one grew that much just in one day - in the morning I saw that there was something happening beneath the soil and in the evening - there it was, spreading it's huge leaves. Some time in autumn it should produce those orange pumpkins that would be gladly carved by Americans for their Halloween celebration.)

February Photo Project

I know it’s April… but here’s the result – please have a look at my and Michael’s hard work (well, it was hard… especially for me, as I couldn’t find time for taking photos):

56 photos that were taken during February 2009.

Sometimes it was easy to think what could best represent the chosen words, sometimes it was pretty hard… then both of us just grabbed a cat… Oh, yes, cats can be independent; they can be jealous or even sweet :)

Was it worth while? YES! I can say that, when I look at the pile that reminds me of February 2009 and sheds some light into what it was like for my friend in the UK.

Thank you Michael!
