Authentic Spring

I’ve been away for a minute, because spring. In Germany, spring doesn’t just mean Easter and half-term Holidays, it means nature is waking up, and of Course working in the garden. Now I know, the British are known for simply fabulous gardens, but so are many Germans. They love a beautiful garden (of whatever size – from balcony to tea-towel size and bigger), to provide a lovely island of tranquility.

Spring is also the start of the beekeeper year, and I’ve been away for a while, getting my hives sorted. I’m doing a beekeepers course, so I thought I’d drop some bee-themed knits:

While I’ve been away, I’ve been watching fashion historian Amanda Hallay’s The Ultimate Fashion History on Youtube when I’ve been too tired to knit. She goes all the way from Prehistoric fashion to the present day, looking at History, Art, and politics and how fashion responded to the life of the times (Her favourite Quote is “Fashion is not an Island, it’s a Response”).

  1. I wish I had a green thumb and could garden but I don’t. I’d love fresh herbs and veggies but I also hate bugs and dirt. Not the best if you’re a gardener.

    1. It’s a matter of perspective really. I’m not the biggest green thumb either. My husband is the green thumb and my gardening coach! I’m not crazy about bugs either, but they are important to the ecosystem – especially bees. With insects though, I might not like them, but birds need to eat too.
