Pictures galore

Hi everyone,

I hope everyone is OK ?
Here in The Netherlands Spring has arrived.
I have been working in the garden and it has been wonderful weather.

Leila has grown a lot.
Here she is on an outing with us. She met one of her sisters again and they had a great time.

In the garden there are some flowers and bushes in bloom. It looks great. Spring has finally arrived.
Here's a  Lunaria annua ( we call it Judas coin in Dutch). There are some of them in the garden. They seed themselves.

This is a Loropetalum chinense Fire Dance ( we call it Witches' bush in Dutch). The flowers are such a bright pink.

This is a little cherry tree in bloom. It is a May cherry.
I hope we will have fruit this year.

A sweet smelling Viburnum Carlesii Juddii. The smell is so wonderful.
I love the pretty pink and white flowers.

The peony is growing very fast. It is a light pink one. I can't wait for it to flower again !

This is a sweetpea bush, lathyrus. It flowers each year.
It isn't scented, but the flowers are very pretty.

A wallflower in a very beautiful colour.

We went to the repair club today, which means I made some cake and slices.
This is a fruit cake and a rolled oats and raisins slice with chocolate.
The men really loved it.

Here's Leila, minding my crochet work. She loves to sit with me while I'm working.

I hope you all have a wonderful week !
