Friday Five and garden

Good morning,
it's time for Willy Nilly Friday Five and I want to join again.


It is late summer and in the air is a slight haze of autumn.
And another smell.
I enjoy aware and grateful the beautiful days, knowing that they will end.


Last week we had  a visit from our friend and were able to take a trip by his car again.
These are especially happy moments for me.
We were at this lake and I really enjoyed swimming there.
Not every summer I have the opportunity to get to a lake for a swim.
I very like swimming and it was for me a very special and rare joy.


Some new plants.
These grasses will be an ornament even in winter.
I have long wanted to have such ornamental grasses and now I could buy it.


I want to transform a part of the garden.
Some years I could grow anything, but it's a green mess now and I no longer like that.

If I see this garden, I think, so I want it too!
I want to plant only the grasses and some herbs.


Yesterday I bought this colorful pots.
They were on sale and I could not resist.
One with a plant, two without. But I have plants enough for them.
I am often seduced by beautiful colors ...

Have a nice weekend all :-)

  9. I hardly know where to start. I just fell in love with this place.

  10. What a lovely post. Such pretty country side. It's so neat you got to go on a trip to the lake and go swimming. I can't swim very well so I seldom go out in water that may be over my head. - I like your choices of the decorative grasses, they are pretty. So were those colorful flower pots.

  11. So happy you had a trip and a swim!
    These gems are more enjoyed when rare. But how I wish you had them more often!
    Love those pots! They will be colour for the garden when nothing is flowering.
    I am seduced by your colourful scarves :-) xo Jazzy Jack
