Used curved bamboo canes, zip ties, and a hessian sack to make a sort of window shade for the south-facing kitchen window, the idea is to reduce how much the sun heats the kitchen in summer but without making it completely dark. It looks... makeshift, but not completely terrible.

Oh yeah! This heron was hanging around the one that lives a couple buildings over that I passed most days. I think it was mating season. We get an awesome variety of waterbirds but the herons are everywhere (and charming!).

The Jordaan in Amsterdam (named "the garden" because when the neighborhood was planned out in the 17th century all the streets and canals were named after plants) has narrow streets and little green space (see: 17th century) but the residents do a fantastic job of squeezing in greenery in containers, window boxes, and climbing walls.

I've just discovered 'Porch sitting' is a thing and I love it. And there are (tongue-in-cheek) 'porch sitting unions' in the US - which is so bloody cute.

I have put a seat in my front garden, both for resting when gardening, but also to see the world go by. The first pic shows my temporary seat made from paving stones left from previous occupants of our house, and a railway sleeper cut off. Which I guess I should have posted for .

The second pic shows the current view from the seat.

- Fragaria x ananassa 'Samba'. It might not look like it, but this is a strawberry flower!

This has smaller fruit than the typical strawberry, however, it also flowers and fruits for a much longer period, from April until about November. I'm growing this as one of the ground cover plants in my mini Forest Garden Border. Beautiful and edible - what a combination!

Happy , mes chéries. Take a moment today to appreciate the beauty of the planet we share. And try to do something good for the world, if you can. 🌍

My SO has a great memory and understanding, and he's always sharing what he learns. I love hearing him telling people environmental facts and spreading awareness and ideas for change. 🥰
