Hurray, spring has come early! If you’re a resident of Holland, you will no doubt have spent the past weekend basking in the sun, be it at the beach, on a restaurant terrace or in your own garden. Having nothing but time on my hands since I had surgery on my shoulder almost two weeks ago (I know, I know, I wasn’t planning on writing about it, but I felt I owed you an explanation for my infrequent posts – typing with one hand is a challenge!), I spent the weekend dozing on the terrace in my garden. And when I wasn’t dozing, I was casting irritated glances at the overgrown weeds and grass, interspersed with bits of broken toys left outside all winter. Getting my better half to start mowing the lawn was not in the cards, as he’s already running himself ragged catering to yours truly (ahem!). And so any thoughts of horticultural improvement were limited to fantasizing about images found on Pinterest. I’m particularly partial to English gardens with wild, romantic blossoms and hidden nooks and crannies. Although those highly stylized box hedges look pretty good too!
