Don't sit under the apple tree with anyone else but me, Anyone else but me, anyone else but me, NO NO NO! Don't sit under the apple tree with anyone else but me Till I come marching home. (Andrews Sisters)

I am very glad the sun is finally coming out these days. Since we moved in our house last October and just before Winter, we really did not get a chance yet to fully enjoy it. We had to wait and see how the plants and trees would develop in Springtime. I must say, there's a lot of green in it and next month we will do some small adjustments : for instance, the bamboo must go ! I really don't like the sight of it. We asked for some help and professional gardener Dao gave us some great tips. The bamboo will be replaced by a domestic grape. They grow real fast so the result will be quickly visible. We'd like a bit more privacy after the "neighbour glued with hands and nose to the window checking me out in my bathroom"-incident.
So with some help of Dao and his wooden construction the domestic grape will be guided along and cover up our garden from some curious peeping Toms.

Yesterday we also bought 2 garden storage tables. We will construct them on Sunday and display our finest herbs, plants and flowers. I'm really getting into the green fingers thing. I find it quite relaxing and it's still amazes me what nature is all about. Seeing something grow makes me feel like a 5 year old again.
Silly but if it makes me happy and relax ... why not, right ?

So, once the garden is prepped for Summer, I'd like to send a picture  to a  garden magazine. They did an appeal to photograph your favorite place in your garden. Might as well do this, so I can share my little joy with other readers and garden lovers.
