Pumpkins and willows.


I’ve put on,not my dancing shoes, but my all time favorite walking shoes, my Aigles and took a walk and a ride on my bike.Came home with willow branches  and green-white pumpkins.They look like bottles.The willows are soon to be pruned so before that, I did my own pruning.The branches are easy to bend so perfect for  a bit of wreath making !

I find it a bit to early to use orange pumpkins they are really Autumn .About half October when Halloween is almost there ,I usually go out (no not on my broomstick!) for the orange varieties and together with my dear friend Ineke we carve them out and display them during Halloween.We always try to celebrate this ,hopefully this year too!You’ll  be the first to know if we do.Pictures will follow.


But for now it’s green/white looking like a bottle pumpkin time !The green wreath is made of the willows.Together with the wooden heart a  bit autumn  inside.I also found a large green pumpkin at the supermarket.

They also look nice on the table outside with the white heather and white pansy.

Little glimpse of my newly painted table and bench in moose farg paint.This weekend there’s a Groei en bloei pumpkin fair in Burgerbrug(N-H) and the man who sells this fantastic paint will be there.I will be there as well not only for  the nice fair, where they also sell brocante, plants,soaps etc.but also for this paint, my tin is empty so I’m in desperate need  of paint.Think I will go for the 4 litres bucket !!Still have to do two benches and a deckchair!!


Thanks again for reading my blog and see you next time !!
