What is your favorite flower?

My favorite flower is definitely the Sweet Pea !
I love the colours.
I Love the smell.
And I love the idea, the more you pick the more you get !

This year they grow in my vegtable garden I love it to have flowers in my vegtable garden as well to give it some extra colour. This evening i picked several bunches and put the all over the place.

On my window sill in my kitchen. Don't you love the little vases. I bought them last weekend in Greytown.

In my bathroom.

The last bunch is for my bedside table.
Now I'm off to the kitchen, I'm making Taai Taai for Sinterklaas on Sunday. Never made it before so I have no idea what to expect, But I can tell you the smell is great.
More about our Sinterklaas evening in a later post.

Laura Ashley at one time sold a beautiful sweet pea wallpaper with a deep matching border. My mum had it in one of her bedrooms. It suited her little thatched cottage.

They are lovely flowers, so nostalgic.

Although my name refers to a Daisy, my favorite flower is the eternal rose. I love them red, so strong and delicate at the same time. Wonderful photos of your garden and corners of your house! Love.

Wat heerlijk dat bij jullie de reukerwtjes nog in bloei staan. Ze zijn echt prachtig! Ik had ze van de zomer ook in mijn tuin staan en bleef er van plukken. Zo mooi! Ik hoop dat de taai taai is gelukt. Zelf heb ik het nog nooit gemaakt. Ik wens je heel veel plezier met Sinterklaas!

Lieve groet, Madelief


This is the first time that I write in my blog.
I am Jacoline, me and my family emigrated to New Zealand from The Netherlands 3 years ago.
I can tell you, we went through some hard times in those 3 years, but we found our dream.

We bought a lovely home close to the beach. I spend a lot of time in our garden which has a lot of fruit trees, a nice vegetable garden and great flowers.

I love to shop in secondhand shops and garages sales are the best invention ever.
My days are filled with craft, cooking , baking and of course my 3 girls.
I try to have a beachwalk every day and on wednesday I join the quilt club.

We are still busy with rebuiling the house to make it a great home.
We like traveling and like to discover our new country.
I keep you updated with new stories, recipes, ideas and pictures every week.
