Vrtnarski dnevnik / Saturday Garden Journal


 Vse zgornje fotke so bile posnete v torek.
Paradižnički so bili ljubko zeleni, 
cvetovi nizkega vijoličnega fižola so bili tako krasni, da bi jih nabrala kar za v vazo,
korenje je bilo sladko in debelo in sploh sem navdušena,
solata dela glave in nekajkrat smo jo imeli že za kosilo,
bučke so v torek še zbirale moči za odprtje cvetov.


All above photos were taken on Tuesday.
Tomatoes were green and cute,
violet blossom of bean was so lovely I wanted to pick it up and put it in a vase at home,
carrots were amazing,
lettuce was perfect
and  little pumpkins were getting ready to blossom.

In danes zjutraj...   /   And today early in the morning...


 Na poti na vrt sem srečala pava in s kolesarjem sva si izmenjala nasmeh. Nasmeh ob 6.28 :o)


On my way to the garden I meet a peacock.
And I exchanged smile with the cyclist. A smile at 6.28 :o)



 Kakšna sprememba v nekaj dneh!
Navdušena sem!


What a change in just few days!
I'm impressed!

Ta trenutek / This moment

{this moment} - A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.

Zavesce in odejica / Curtains and little blanket


Danes se mi je uspelo usesti za šivalni stroj.  Pod oknom je v vozičku spal Mali B, gospodični pa sta nabirali jagodičje in pripravljali poletno pojedino.
Zarobila sem zavese, ki jih je izvezla nona. Nežne modre marjetice. 


A little bit of sewing time for me today. Yay.
I finished a lovely handembroided curtains for my parents.
The embroidery part is my nana's. Lovely blue daisies.
 


 Tole pa je nekaj, kar me je zaposlovalo zadnji mesec. Prevleko za blazino sem dala na pol in se lotila vezenja, da dam celotni zadevi unikatni duh. Ni čisto tako, kot sem si predstavljala da bo, a je vseeno nastala prav simpatična odejica za malo dojenčico.


And this is something that kept me busy last few weeks. It's a half of a pillow case that I wanted to make a little more unique with embroidery touch. It's not completely as I imagined it, but it's still a lovely blanket for a little baby girl.

Zaljubljeni v svet / Falling in love with the world


*
Kdaj ste nazadnje pustili polžku, da se vam je sprehodil po dlani?
Kdaj ste nazadnje pekli tortice iz blata, mešali različna zelišča v vodi in ustvarjali nov parfum?
Kdaj ste se nazadnje ulegli v travo in zaprli oči?
Ali pa sedeli na vrtu in čakali na kresničke? 

Torke bom namenila zaljubljanju.
Zaljubljanju v naravo.
V svet.
Čudenju.
Če bi se mi pridružili, preprosto pustite komentar s povezavo do svojega malega čudeža. 



When was the last time you let a snail to move across your palm?
When was the last time you baked a mud-pies?
 When was the last time you lied on the grass, watching the clouds?

I want to join my kids more often.
I want to feel and see the world the way they do.
The magic without annoying adult's thoughts like 'I'll get dirty, do I have a spare shirt, what if we catch cold...'
My Tuesday posts will be dedicated to fun activities and moments of becoming one with the world.
 If you're inspired to do the same, leave a link to your post in the comments for all to find and see.

Ples sladkorne vile / Sugar Plum Fairy


Njun prvi nastop na velikem odru...

Oh, bilo je čarobno!


Their first appearance on the big stage...
they were wonderful. 
Oh, my it was magical!

Morske deklice na našem vrtu / Mermaids in our garden


Naš vrt se je včeraj spremenil v vodno kraljestvo. 

Pisani valovi so šumeli in daleč naokrog se je razlegal smeh morskih deklic. Njihovi bleščeči repi so se vrteli v ritmu glasbe. Oče Pozejdon je skrbel, da deklice niso bile lačne in mami Amfitrita jim je pomagala okrasiti školjko z morskimi kristali.
    Zabavali smo se do večera, ko so po male morske deklice prišli njihovi starši in jih v kočijah odpeljali domov.

There was a big party in our garden yesterday. 
Many little mermaids gathered to celebrate a birthday of their friend.
There were sparkles everywhere, laughter and music.
Father Poseidon and mother Amphitrite were watching over little mermaids, making sure they are having a lovely time... until they parents came and took them all home.

Kvačkan okvir / Little picture with crochet frame


 Našla sem luknjač... in naluknjala lepenko (zelo neenakomerno, ker si prej nisem naredila načrta...bom vedela za naslednjič) in nakvačkala okvir. Potem sem se nekaj časa postavljala in prestavljala gumbe, suhe rože, listke, silhuete izrezane iz strani knjige... dokler ni nastal tale ptiček. 
čiv, čiv


I love crocheted frames...so I made one today :o)

Venček za zelenčka / Little green bird


Z našega raziskovalnega sprehoda smo domov zopet prinesle šop trde trave. Spletla sem doooolgo kito in jo nato zvila v krog ter prepletla, da je nastal venček.
Dodala sem malega zelenega ptička in nastal je lušten okras.
Ker ima trava kar močan vonj, je ostala zunaj nekaj dni, zdaj pa že visi na notranji strani okna. 


I made this lovely  wreath with a hard grass that grows near the stream. I'm not sure, but it must be some kind of water-loving grass. It has quite strong scent.
Oh, how much I love to use stuff I find in the nature.  

 Moj pleteni prispevek za izziv CRAFT-alnice.

Vrtnarski dnevnik / Saturday Garden Journal


Čebulice spomladanskih rož so zunaj. Ko se posušijo, jih bom očistila zemlje in shranila do jeseni. Do takrat se moram tudi odločiti, kam jih bom posadila. 
Pravzaprav celoten vrt potrebuje osvežitve. Nekaj grmov bova vrgla ven, ker več kot toliko joste pač ne moreš pojest.
Rada bi nasadila nekaj sadnega drevja. 
Nujno potrebujem primeren prostor za rože.
itd. 
Skiciram, razmišljam in hodim gor in dol po vrtu, štejem korake... super je!


We put out the spring  flower bulbs. I'm not sure where am I going to put them in the autumn, but I really need to find them a good spot. I love flowers.
The whole garden will go through a little refreshment in the next few months. We'll take out some shrubs, put in apple trees.
We need to make more beds for vegetables.
e.t.c.
I'm thinking and sketching and having fun!


Tudi jagode bodo dobile nov dom. Dovolj velik, da se bodo po mili volji množile. Poleg gozdnih bom nasadila še vrtne.


Strawberries will get a new home too. Big enough to grow and have babies :o)
I would also like to add garden strawberries besides the woodland's one.


Trenutno moja naj vrtnina - grah.


My favourite vegetable at the moment - pea.

 * * *
 
Zelišča krasno uspevajo. Meta je že pripravljena na novo obrezovanje. Mislim, da bom tokrat naredila metin liker.
 

Herbs are growing like wild. I love it.  I'll have to cut the mint. I think I'll make a mint liqueur.

  * * *
 

 Nekatero zelenjavo sem dala  zemljo pravočasno, drugo kasneje. Počasi bo že, za drugo leto bom pa že bolje vedela.
Bijem tudi bitko s polži. Tistimi rdečimi, bljak. Spravili so se na sončnice in ohrovt. Poskusila bom z ograjico iz cikcak odrezane plastenke. Bom videla, če deluje.


 I have few problems with slugs, but for now everything is under control... sort of.
 

Zopet so po vrtu raztresene lupinice kosovih jajc. Drobnega ščebetanja ne slišim...


We are finding blackbird eggshells around the garden again....
