The garden season has been finished for a while now and due to the unforeseeable future next year, I haven’t done a lot of planning or preparation in the garden. The last visits were always accompanied by some melancholia – I wanted to plan, wanted to prepare, but I still don’t know whether we will actually see the outcome.
Like last year, I tried to take a picture of our garden each month. This year, it looked a bit more chaotic than the year before. The paths were sometimes more green than the flower beds. August had been awesome – despite the high temperatures which made me suffer a lot, we spent a lot of time in the garden and the little one was eager to harvest all kind of vegetables. After the beginning of September it was difficult to find the time to work in the garden. But I am extremly grateful for this little spot as it has been such a joy to watch the little one play and discover everything (I don’t think there are many two-year-olds that can distinguish fennel and dill…).
So, here is the garden review from 2015. This winter is missing though, since it didn’t look very different from October. Still no snow in Switzerland…
(A garden journal with pictures and seed catalogues and everything that went well and went wrong is still a big idea on my to-do-list. But god knows when I’ll find the time for it.)
