Maj


Zadnji majski dan... ne bom se vprašala, kam je šel, ker točno vem kam je šel :o) Bil je tako poln, čustveno nabit, da ga zlepa ne bom pozabila.
Preden pa se za letos poslovi, bi vam rada pokazala še nekaj majskih drobtinic.

Gnezdo zgoraj je kosovo in kljub temu, da smo srako podili stran od hiše, ji je vseeno uspelo priti do jajčk. Žal. Lupinice smo pobirali po celem vrtu. Gospodični sta bili čisto pretreseni.


The last day of May.
May has been a very intense month. 
I'm looking forward to warm June days (with less rain I hope)
But before we say goodbye to May I want to share few moments of this month.

The nest with tiny blue eggs was blackbirds. Was, because not even one of them survived a magpie attack. Girls were shocked.

Prve pridelke z vrta smo že veselo zaužili. Rukolo v solati in špinačo v zavitku.

 First harvest :o) Spinach.
 *
 

Kupi limoninih polovičk, ki so spremljale kuhanje bezgovega sirupa. Ne uporabljam citronke in namesto nje zlijem v sirup sveže stisnjen limonin sok. 


Lemon halves for elderflower syrup. We all love this syrup and I needed to make a big stock to last until next May.

 Za malo Lučko sem sešila knjigico z vrtnimi motivi.


 I made another fabric book. This time for little Lucille.

 Zakaj ne delajo več takih avtomobilskih značk?

Oh I would love to have a emblem like this on my car.

 "Ko bova veliki bova raziskovalki!"

"We are going to be a researchers, when we grow up!"
 
 *
Na koncu pa bi vas povabila na svoj drugi blog, rojen meseca maja.
Svinčnik in čopič, upam, da si bom v prihodnosti lahko vzela zanju več časa.

And at the end, I would like to invite you to my other blog. 
Just take a peek. I hope you will enjoy.

Trd pristanek / Crash landing


Tole ubogo bitjece je doživelo hudo trd pristanek. Po nesrečnem trčenju v okno je padel na balkon in obležal.
Dali smo ga v škatlo, da je v temi in miru počival kakšno urico, potem pa je poletel nazaj v svobodo.
Upam, da je z njim vse v redu.


This poor little creature had a crash landing on our balcony. He hit really hard against the window. 
We put him into a box and let him rest in peace for an hour. After that he was ready to fly home.
I hope he is OK.

Moj dragi, ki se spozna na ptičke bolj kot jaz, pravi, da bi bil lahko slavček.


My hubby says he could be a nightingale.

 Update

Pina, mi je prijazno sporočila, da se ptiček imenuje vrtna penica. 
Torej nima smisla sedeti in čakati na slavčkovo pesem :o)



I was informed, that this little birdy is called Garden Warbler.
No need to sit and wait for a sweet nightingale song then, I guess :o)

Sobotno vrtnarjenje / Saturday Gardening


Danes sem imela slab dan. Resnično slab dan.
Naredila sem reči, za katere bi bilo bolje, da jih ne bi in predvsem izrekla besede, ki ne bi smele biti izrečene.
Kraj mojega stresanja slabe volje je bil naš vrt. 
In čeprav me je do sedaj vedno spravilo vrtnarjenje v dobro voljo, so bile zemlja in rastline danes brez moči.


I had a bad day today. Really bad day.
I did some bad things, but most of all I let my anger speak some really ugly words. I feel so ashamed and so sad.
The drama took place in our garden and it should be a happy place. But today the magic of the plants was overruled by my terrible mood .
 

Fotografije so z včerajšnjega vrtnarjenja. 
Včerajšnji dan je bil popolno nasprotje današnjega.
Čudovit dan.


I took this photos yesterday.
Yesterday was a very good day.

Trenutek / This moment

IF: Sight



For my part I know nothing with certainty, but the sight of the stars makes me dream.

Papirčanje / Paper-pockets


Imam zelo hecno lastnost, da zbiram semena. Povsod. Celo poletje. Zavijam jih v robce in potem pozabim nanje. Spravljam jih v predalček denarnice. Potisnem jih v žep jakne...
Letos sem se pripravila.
S pomočjo Gospodične N, ki je izbrala nit in upravljala hitrost šivanja, sem sešila kup papirnatih vrečk. Iz strani stare knjige seveda.
Vrečke za semena.
Upam, le da jih ne bom pozabila doma, ko bom odšla na sprehod :o)


I love collecting seeds. Flowerseeds. Allsorts of them. 
 But usually I have nowhere to put them, so I wrap them into papertissue, put them into my pocket or into wallet... and then I'm finding my seeds everywhere, not knowing anymore which flower they belong to.
 To make some order in my collecting, I have sewn paper pockets to store tiny seeds. 
 It was a super easy project and a lovely half an hour with Miss N.

Na vrtu / In the garden


 

 Preizkusila sem se v pletenju trav. Nabrala sem neko silno ostro travo, ki raste v bližini vode, nekaj šib in se lotila dela. Super je šlo. Pleten šotor za rastline, kot mu rečeta gospodični, sem postavila za oporo grahu. 
In ta moj ljubi grahek, ne le da cveti, tudi male grahke je že naredil in prav kmalu jih bo Mali B dobil v skledico.

Po pletenju sem se lotila prekopavanja nove zaplate zemlje in pripravila sem še eno gredo za fižol in grah. Ker fižola in graha ni nikoli preveč... ali pa tudi, haha

Namočila sem koprive za gnojilo paradižnikom.

Začela sem z vzgajanjem novih sadikc neke blitve z rdečim steblom. 
Pripraviti moram še zaboj za vzgajanje solatk. S tem mislim, da moram zaboj še narediti (po tem postopku, le večjega). Lesa je dovolj, ampak kako naj Malega B prepričam, da je žaga moja prijateljica in da sicer res da ropota, grize pa ne... (če jo držiš na pravem koncu)...


* * * 

It was a busy dan in the garden today (and yesterday).
I made a climbing construction for sweet pea (I never did it before and it went great).
Pea must be my favourite plant at the moment... it's blooming and I spotted few little peas as well. Can't wait to cook a baby pure for little B from it.

Speaking of my pea-love. I made a new bed for pea and bean.

We have a lot of nettles at the end of the garden so I collect a bunch and put them into the water. They will start to smell really bad, but it's good for the tomatoes.

I need more seed-boxes.

Trenutek / This moment




Ta čebela me je prav nasmejala. 
Postavila se je na glavo v cvet.


This little bee has made me laugh.
She stood on her head to reach sweet nectar.
