Kitchen - Final Part

Another thing that changed - while I was having a nice time in Denmark - was our kitchen.

It is finally done. Last year all the carpentry was made, but we still needed some final touches, like painting the walls and floor. Vincent stayed in Berlin for the three weeks to finish it and I am really happy with the result.

In case you don't remember, this is how it looked like before.

Sunday is... no. 18

...a walk to your favorite coffee place to fill up the depot at home.

Green Balcony

While I was in Denmark, this happened at the balcony. Our wild flower meadow grew from zero to a very green and bushy flower bed. The fig also had another growing spurt and now have 4 green figs. The first fig - that came early - we ate back in June. It was sweet and juicy, so I look forward to the next batch is ripe. While I am waiting, I am still enjoying strawberry season, that is sadly soon coming to an end.

For people who know me or followed this blog for a couple of years, I think it's safe to say you must know by now that I love Tivoli. I have posted many pictures from this place. Of course this year should be no different. Because a proper summer in Denmark has to have a scheduled in visit to Tivoli. I can never get over how nice a place that is, even if I don't go for the rides, but just like to wander around and enjoy all the beautiful flowers and the many colourful buildings while eating an ice-cream.

One of the many great things about Denmark in June is the beautiful rhododendron bushes that are blooming everywhere. I am sure you have noticed them on my previous post, because in Hillerød there seems to be a lot. Maybe it seems so because they have these massive bushed where my parents live and I was there right in the primetime. I enjoyed them every single day when going out for my walk and coming back.

Birthday Walk

Exactly a month ago I celebrated my 34 years on this earth.

But a birthday is not equivalent to sit down and relax. Especially when you have a four month old baby. So of course I had to go on my daily walk, but lucky for me the weather behaved - as did I for the last year. I had a nice promenade through the garden at the castle in Hillerød, enjoying all the colourful flowers and the sun.

It has been many years since I last celebrated my birthday in Denmark. It falls on the Danish national day, so I can always pretend that everyone puts up the flag on my behalf.
