while i was dealing with an evil stomach bug
that involved an emergency doctor drugging me out and rewarding me with a nice PLASTER afterwards
my garden exploded
a while before i retreated to bath and bed
i had a little/big help cleaning everything up
(best dressed gardener ever, right?)
and these pictures of those tiny plants taken right after look so ridiculous after a few weeks
slowly i´ve come to like the wilderness of my mixture of old growth and new plantation
one (sick) evening of a especially warm day
i sat up in bed crying out "that smell, that smell!"
since the air was filled with an almost sickening sweet scent of my just startet narcissus boarder,
tons of violets, hyacinths (look at my favorites, so cute) and a pear tree just bursting into bloom
i spent so much time, money and energy at planing and planting this garden
(which will never some to an end)
but it already feels so rewarding and there´s still so much to come out during the year
also it´s really difficult to take "nice" pictures of it all
since i´m not living in the prettiest neighborhood
so you can only see a fraction of my wild tulip collection
since i´ve now included roasted bananas and ice cream to my diet of zwieback, apples and noodle soup
my strength will return soon
 and i´m going to dig around there again in no time


so i made some Mexican BISCOCHITOS
with orange zest, anise and Cointreau
(W can´t wait to get that bottle - minus two table spoons - for Easter)
they did turn out surprisingly good
considering my baking disasters lately
then i couldn´t come up with a fun picture idea when they came out of the oven
so i gave up on it after showing them some apricot in bloom
now they are ready to be eaten
please tell me what lens to get for my Canon
those contortions just drive me mad
happy Easter everybody!
