Our garden..

As i have told you before, i am not a garden girl, i do not have any green fingers what so ever, but that doesnt mean i dont like the beauty of a garden! I did walk around in our garden yesterday and took some shots of some pretty flowers and some other stuff. Think mostly its weeds but they look rather beautiful to me!

We have a pond with lots of water-lilys (wich isnt in bloom right now) and some other things floating around..and that fountain looks rather old and needs some work i think.

and because we have a pond we have a garden full of these little creatures...they are tiny, not larger than my thumbnail! One morning when i got up and went out to go to the bus, the garden was full of them, i couldnt put my feet down anywhere without the risk of slatering a frog! Must have been the moment they decided to move away from home! We still have a lot of them though, if you stay still and watch out over the grass you will see them jumping here and there!

I also managed to pick 1,9 kg of these babies (redcurrants) yesterday...they look so yummy but i really dont know what to do with them...so i put them in the freezer until i might have some more berrys and fruits so i can make me some lemonade or jam or something. Any suggestions?

This is actually one of the flowers that is supposed to be in the garden (i think *lol*)

This little guy (bigger than the frogs) is packing up his lunch, i got to vitness when he caught and killed a bug and then he started to roll it in to his web until he had a nice little lunchbox ready!

weeds again...

we have these big big ferns on the side of the house...gorgeous when they are green...hiddius when they starts to wither! Dont know if we should keep them or not.

we also found this little guy...and i had to go google him, its a Limax maxius (or panthersnail(slug?) in swedish, dont know the english word for it...looks more like leopard than panther to me though). Apparently its good to have him in the garden! So he can stay!

My favorite weed...dandelion

just so beautiful!

The blackberrys are coming along quite nicely! Not gonna have as much as last year though cuz i have cut a lot of them down cuz they are taking over the garden!

And finally i took a shot off the field "next door"...they look so beautiful!

and Bella took one as well...you can feel the movement in this shot, she is good with the camera my little girl!

ok, hope you enjoyed the little garden tour.....and i hope you all are having a wonderful time where ever you are!
