Ok, I’m gonna blog once more about the house and then I’ll shut up about it for a while. I promise!

There’s no point showing you the inside of our new home since we’re still pretty much living in boxes, but to be honest I’m more interested in the outside anyway. I can’t believe I have a lawn!! :D Every time I come home after being out I get all giddy when I see the hedge and the flowerbeds.

Hopefully I’ll manage to take care of it… I have the exact opposite of green fingers so this will be an interesting project in the spring.

Imaginary Karin - flower bed

This is the flowerbed by the house wall. The big red ones are obviously some type of roses, and I assume they’ll come back next year too since they’re pretty big. The others I have no idea what they are. I don’t even know if they’ll come back in the spring or if they’re the type that only lives for one year and then they’ll die for good and you have to plant new ones.

It’s all very pretty though.

Imaginary Karin - strawberry patch

This is the patch by the patio/porch (whatever it’s called). Not nearly as colourful, but rather interesting since it has strawberries! It’s only a handful of plants, but still! :) Then there’s some other random plants as well. I saw one of them has a tag sitting in the dirt next to it saying it’s a “Macedonian Scabious”. Whatever that means, haha!

Imaginary Karin - view from our kitchen

Here’s the view from the kitchen window. The street goes in a circle with houses around the edge and a patch of forest in the middle.
So far I really like my new surroundings. To the west and south lies more houses and playgrounds and soccer fields. To the north and east there’s nothing but forest as we live on the very outskirts of town.
Just the way I like it. :)

I just have to figure out this whole flower situation.
Good thing I have the whole winter to read up on gardening. :P
