Love this time of year
I just love spring, even if it makes my eyes itchy and my body feverish. Spring means a new start for everything! There are so many beautiful greens and florals that makes my florist heart jump. Spring also means it´s soon my birthday! Woho! I´m turning 28 and I´m hoping the weather will be warm, it would be amazing to have a birthday-dinner outside.
Right now, I´m waiting for Gillian to arrive, she is driving from Limoges airport. She haven´t driven a car for 7 years (apparently) and I´m hoping she will arrive in one piece! Haha. While waiting, I´ve been trying to resize a vintage dress that I just bought. Easier said than done! I do wish I had my great grandmother here to help me. She was a heartwarming woman and an utter perfectionist with the sewing machine. I´m imagining her looking down on me now, just laughing and rolling her eyes. She spent all her life making clothes for other people. I wish I asked her to teach me her skills.
Ruby is always following me when I´m outside, he is so sweet

Harvesting a few branches for the kitchen table
I hope you all have a beautiful day. It´s a bloomy day here at Chateau de la lande. Our vegetable garden is already in motion. With help from Marie Poupins (our help, and her real name), we already have managed to plant salads, tomatoes, strawberries, blue potatoes, sweet potatoes, onions, garlic, beets and more. I even planted the 2 peony roots into beds. In the kitchen, I´ve sown 3 large pots with basil and coriander. They are already starting to grow.
