A few months ago, back in January, I gave you a tour of Peter and Peace´s cottage
At that time of the year, their back garden looked rather bare, unwelcoming and banked with snow and leaves so I thought it was no worth taking any pictures of it.
However, in early spring colourful flowers bloomed and the lawn started to look lush and green again.
It´s summer now ,and even though Peter and Peace spend most of the time at the beach, they don´t neglect their garden and take their time to keep it in good shape.
Every morning, Peace waters the plants to make them grow happy and healthy.She also talks to them as she believes that talking to plants and being nice to them can help them grow faster.
"Good morning my dears, it´s time to have a shower!"
Peter is particularly fond of a very unusual plant in Sylvania. Believe it or not it´s a carnivorous plant!
It was tiny when he planted in the garden but look how tall it is now!
Peace, who was never very keen on growing this kind of plants , doesn´t water it as often as the rest , just in case it keeps growing and gets too hungry!
"Peter, don´t get that close! Mind your ears! You never know ...!
Peter says there´s nothing to worry about his plant. He must be right. Truth be told, it seems to be a bugs- friendly plant. Peter and Peace have never seen it catching any of its visitors and they look quite happy to sit on its leaves . It might not be so carnivorous after all.
Even though Peace loves colourful flowers , cacti are also some of her favourite plants ,that´s why she is delighted with the design of her new garden table.
The bright orange chairs are also new and so is the big pink cushion.
It´s nice to lay down on the fluffy grass and have something soft to rest your head on.
As well as lovely flowers, a dodgy looking plant and some greenery, there is also a vegetable patch in Peter and Peace´s garden! In early spring, they got their hands in the dirt and planted a few seeds. Just carrots and tomatoes to start with. A few months later, their first crop is ready to be harvested!
"Tomato soup and carrot cake for dinner today! Yummy!"
Look how proud they look of their first little harvest!
Not bad for a couple of first time planters. Don´t you think so?
Pleased with the result, they are considering enlarging their vegetable garden and growing more variety of veggies. A great way to save a few sylvas and trips to the farmers´ market.
Good idea guys! I think you have a green thumb! Go for it!
As they had planned,with their first little harvest they cooked a tasty tomato soup and baked a delicious carrot cake. It was so nice that even the butterflies wanted to taste it!
"Peace, the butterfly landed on your head now. It seems to like your flower!"
"You also have one resting on top of your ear, Peter!"
They were in a great mood but that feeling didn´t last long, at least for Peter.
When they went back to the table, they couldn´t believe their eyes!
"You greedy plant! How you dare! Don´t eat the last piece of our cake!" Peter stood up on a chair and yelled it at the top of his lungs.
However, Peace was relieved to know the plant wasn´t as carnivorous as it looked.
"Don´t bother, Peter! Just leave it alone! You won´t get the cake back!"
"Don´t you worry, next time, we´ll bake one for us and another one for your plant. It has a sweet tooth , for sure!
This time the two of them bursted out laughing.
That´s all for today. Hope you have enjoyed spending some time with Peter and Peace in their garden.
