Frédéric, the gardener, came Friday with his proposal for the front garden. He will plant three kinds of roses, small, medium and big bushes all along the front. I am very curious to see how it will look next spring.

Instead of trees in the middle of the front yard grass he will plant two sorts of magnolias. He will put tree short ones of one color with a tall magnolia tree of a different color. That will take some years to look good.

In the back he has already planted a couple of hundred bulbs in the flower beds and in the forest. Yes, we have a tiny forest in the back yard. You really cannot access it easily. It is closed on three sides by the fence and one side by the giant rhododendrons so we really do not have an easy access to it. Frédédic has promised me three entrances to the forest and a man made path with dark barks to be able to stroll through. In the meantime he has planted tiny blue flowers bulbs that should appear in early springtime.

He has also filled the big long container along the tall barbecue window with tulip bulbs and on top a cover of winter violets. He promised he will clear some of the plants in the herb garden and make more room for me for extra herbs and maybe a couple of tomato plants next spring.

We are slowly slowly transforming this green garden into a flower garden. I need all the help I can get.
