Foreign Gardening

While I’ve been in Germany, I’ve done very little gardening. Some leaf raking and dead branch collecting was about all. Frank, on the other hand, has been going gangbusters. He’s weeded, harvested, planted next years bulbs, sifted compost and today he hung a new bird house in the giant birch tree (and repaired/cleaned out the old one). I “helped” (by watching) until the cold drove me inside. It was – 6 C out there and that’s just too cold. (Yes, that’s snow on the ground.)

When he went back up the ladder, I went out into the elements to “help” some more. Boy do I love gardening in Sydney!

  1. Hi Laura,
    I am not sure when you will be returning, but I have given you a “liebster” award – I hope that helps you ease back into blogging on your return. Stay warm – that doesn’t sound like gardening weather to me!
