I have spent a few days at the country house and admired the garden there. I will not take the credit for any of it. There have been times when have participated, but this year I haven't done anything out there. Still it is good to see that the garden is thiriving.
We have tried to grow different things, like different vegetables and potatoes. I had a herb garden a few years ago, which was quite successful. Lately plants/flowers and fruit are the main areas we have gone for. We can harvest raspberries, strawberries, plums and redcurrants with some success every year. We have also tried pears and apples with varying degree of success.
I took some photos and would like to take the opporunity to post some:
The raspberries and Strawberries needs some sun..
The red currants are always a success. The plums varies from year to year, but it looks like we will have some this year.

There is a new fashion item in my wardrobe and I am determined to wite a post about it. It is a kimono With tassels.
I am normally not a tassel kind of person, but this kimono still got into my wardrobe.
The intention behind this post was to show off the kimono on me, but I din't manage to get a decent picture of it. It just looked like I was wrapped up in a blanket. It wasn't really the tassels fault.
Perhaps I'll just keep it for those balcony evenings.
Thumbs up for determination for getting the post done, though.

The decision is made. In a months time I will be swapping urban for suburbia. I am moving into a flat that is twice as big as the one I currently live in, in a five year old house about half an hour outside of the citycentre. There will be lots of space as opposed to the rather cramped conditions of city living. You even get your own parking place! So different from where I live now!
So why is it so that I have felt so sad? I have heard about people cracking open the champagne when they have bought a new house. I didn't feel like that at all.
I am not a city girl, but I have lived in the city for eight years. That was never the plan. This flat came to me when I was at a turning point in my life. I needed shelter, I needed anonymity, I needed to rebuild something and the city flat provided all of that.
I have been renting this flat, had the opportunity to buy it and decided against it. Basically, it has a lot to do with the surreal house prices in this country and what you get for your money. But it also has to with something else. A new start, maybe. Some kind of declaration that I am ready to move on.
So now I have started to put my stuff into boxes. I have felt really emotional and sad and had a strong need to just stay in the flat. Didn't want to go out at all.
Even if I have questioned my decision over the past few weeks, I know deep inside that I have done the right thing.
