Bird related

A couple of cards I have made inbetween time and as I mentioned before, I am all birds and eggs at the moment.




I have been busy planting seeds too - herbs and everything really that one can eat in a salad, like the leaves of pea shoots and edible flowers etc.
I found a lovely wooden tray this morning, very vintage in which one can plant a herb garden. The seeds and labels went with it - that made me very happy.

The sun is shining here and the weather is beautiful.

Our son Joël is in Suriname with his Bible class. He was scheduled to return this weekend but because of the ash-cloud he has to stay there until at least teusday. We are hearing reports that it may even last longer before the air is free for flights to resume. DH and I were flying to Holland this Friday but might have to go by car now!

  3. This time of year makes me think of all the nests being built, too. I would love to see a picture of your little herb garden in the wooden tray when it is sprouted! Sounds so charming!
    Our lettuces are in, and I can see their green haze from my craft room window........arugula, baby spinach, a mesclun mix, and red and green lettuces! Can't wait to make my first salad!!
