This week daughter and I were busy at school.
It's the school where I worked,
where daughter went,
and the grandchildren
(now only the youngest)
When I worked at school, I loved to use the windows
as a third (fourth) wall, and painted on them
whenever I needed it in a theme.
Later on, others asked me to decorate their windows as well !
When daughter "took over" that task I always helped her out.
The painting at the entrance door was damaged
(by scratchy little fingers)
and because the white paint we used
for some unknown cause started to peel ...
So, time to do the painting once again.
Some background, and then it's done !
The garden thrives ...
not only the flowers, but the tiny visitors as well !
Each year the Polygonatum is attacked by caterpillars,
it was no different this year
They start at the juicy seedpods
and then work from the top down ...
if you want butterflies ...
you have to endure these little buggers !
Of all the plants I bought through the years
a LOT disappeared, while others thrived
(and became too many sometimes)
I thought I'd lost this beauty
a Sanguisorba (menziesii, I think)
until I found it here again on the stairs to the water !
Must leave it there, I can't move it !
(NO .... my stairs are not very tidy !!!)
And in the water :
another beauty struggling ...
When Man is too busy with his "colours"
Bella surely has her ways to persuade him
to pay more attention to her !
"You have to pet me ..."
