We are not so lucky these past few days with the weather, got a bit of quick snow sometimes, windy and cold. So, no outdoors pictures for you today guys. With the temperature of below 0°C i made myself busy planting in our humble balcony ;) wearing dick jackets and socks i went planting.
We bought some flowers, plants, baskets and one small sack of soil. I was surprised when i saw the price of a ready made autumn deco in the shop, one deco with flowers and some dried fruits and leaves costs almost 30 Euro! This picture below is my own self made deco. And the result is we spend only for all 10.99 Euro instead of 30 Euro for the deco (picture below) the basket cost 5.99 euro then the Alpenveilchen (Cyclamen) cost 2 euro and the Heide ( Heaths) flowers cost 3 euro, put some soil and i get 2 pieces of apple from our kitchen and walah! i have my very own autumn deco ;)
The flowers with blue and yellow colors are called Stiefmütterchen (Viola or Pansy) and they say it can survive the cold weather of winter, hmmm.. let's see ;) the flower in the shoe vase is also Cyclamen.
The glass vase with the candle is also my own self made deco, we bought the vase for 9.99 and the candle for 4 euro, one pack of deco stone cost 2 euro and the rest what's inside are all natural, one apple, dried fruit, vine leaves and some branches from Mutti's garden ;) and walah! another of my "masterpiece"? ;) *winks* if you buy this ready made it will cost double or even triple the price of the materials.
and this Marienkäfer ( Ladybeetle) i found in the leaves of the berries from Mutti's garden, got several shots whew! before i got this one, hope it's ok ;) here in DE, they say it brings luck. Guys wish us luck next week that the weather will be friendly so we could go outdoors and share to you more pics of Autumn ;)
