Backyard vibes.

New 'kiss-me-over-the-garden-gate' baby plants on the bench. I love the name of the plant and it is a very fast-growing annual that self-seeds in the fall. Once you’ve planted it, you’re likely to have the flower in that spot for years to come. While the plant can grow up to two meters high, it rarely, if ever, needs to be staked. They are seedlings from the Villa Augustus garden, where they returned a bit too abundantly.

And we've finally found a convivial parasol to replace the ripped Shady Lace umbrella, which broke down last summer after 13 years.

This May has been so good so far...

We already had quiet some breakfasts, lunches and dinners in the backyard. It feels like summer.


  1. Wateren geweldige naam voor een plant!,,
    En je parasol is geweldig, alhoewel ik nog steeds verliefd op Sandy Lace parasol ben. Laat de zomer maar komen!

  2. i have not grown this particular annual. Will look for it at my local seedbank.

    The one annual I can always count on self sowing is this one. I love the name.
