Last Month's Flowers .. so we're behind a month, do you really care?

Meoweeee!
We've been late with these pics of the garden at our house in Utrecht. Well, no time like the present to remedy this "foutje" (small mistake).

In April, the garden was full of grape hyacinths ("blauwe druifjes") and dandelions ("paardebloem" ... which translates to horse flowers... don't ask, we have no idea why).



A Tulipa Tarda sprang up in the garden, but no one knew it was there. They are native to Turkestan.



When he is not sleeping, Finn does enjoy the garden. He doesn't do much in the garden, but he enjoys it.



On the otherhand, Sacha likes to decide what gets planted in which pot. She's always busy...



Tulips ("tulpen") are always in our garden.

This is our favorite, the big red one ("grote rode tulp") !



And finally, in Arpil we enjoyed the light airiness of the white wood anemone ("bosannemoon"). Mooi! (pretty)



Tomorrow, maybe some more pictures.

Hmmm, but only if it's raining outside. ;-)


Tot ziens!
Finn & Sas
