Yipee, my month is finally here!! I love it when May arrives...:) Apart from being my birth month(Ye ye, that's why I am named May!!!), the warm weather, color and sunshine, what's not to love about that??
We had an eventful week, with the kids being home for Easter holidays. The final countdown to the first holy communion of my son and daughter has begun. Next Sunday, at this time, my husband and I should be playing gracious hosts to 25 odd guests who will be sharing in our joy. More on the event will follow the coming week with pictures and stories about the entire celebration.
This week, we headed over to Koblenz, 200 kms from where we live to witness the Bundesgartenschau that was held. In Germany, the federal garden show is held once every two years. I love garden shows. right from my childhood days. Being a lover of plants,back home I used to grab the opportunity to visit a horticulture show of any kind. On arrival in Germany, I missed these colorful events, but then, every village has flowers popping out their windows, doors, yards and houses which in turn is a visual treat to the eyes.
I am grateful for a family who understands my love for flowering plants and accomodate my need to visit these places. They patiently tag along side me as I exclaim and wonder at the gorgeous colors and shapes of the petals.
The garden show runs from April to October. But I hurried along this week before the tulips withered out and went out of season. I know, tulip fields are plenty in neighboring Netherlands, but honestly, I do not know whether I will ever reach there. So, we hurried up this week, cause, even a tiny patch of tulips were enough to satisfy my soul.
