My First Picking

 If you are a rabbit and you live in our neighborhood, you are not stressed.  Life is good.  There is a lot of tender grass for you to dine upon and evidently, humans are harmless.

 Drumroll, please!  I grew BEANS!  They are beautiful and we shall eat them for supper!

 Look at this gorgeous type of lavender from Reve's garden!  Isn't it delicate and romantic?

It seems unbelievable that just a short time ago, we were here.  I don't think I had ever set foot in such a cathedral!  It was very cool.  Very quiet.  (Munich, by the way)
I'm a little crabby today.  I think the jet lag is catching up with me.  I'm going to sit on the sofa with a soft pillow nearby.  Nap.
What are YOU up to?

the green beans would be devoured raw by me. :) yum!

Lovely photos! And your green beans look so good. I've been eating courgette from the garden tonight, but we haven't grown beans this year. They seem to either glut or go bare, and Ben decided to go for sweetcorn instead, so I shouldn't complain!

Just woke up and wandered around to here. Hope your nap went as well.

Mmmmm, fresh green beans are so delicious! I believe that lavender is called sea lavender. I think I used to have some in my garden.

Munich! How wonderful! Rest up! That jet lag is a horrible thing!

The squirrels ate our beans this year but yours are lovely. You deserve a nice little nap. Enjoy!

Hooray for the beans! Mine are getting picked tomorrow. Snap peas have been picked multiple times. I hope the cukes will start setting soon. Lots of blooms, no cukes yet.

Naps are good for crabbiness. I hope you got one.

green beans never taste the same after you've grown, picked and eaten them fresh from your own garden~!
i like to cook mine on a baking sheet in the oven with a little olive oil, salt and pepper on top. a few minutes at 400 degrees and then a quick stir, then an additional few minutes and you have a very tasty green bean treat.

those bunnies are very tame~!
they must enjoy the fresh garden goodies too.

hope the nap helped you to feel better.

If I was a rabbit I would move to your neighborhood, it's beautiful! Hope you caught up with your sleep.

We are having a great green bean year but a terrible tomato year. My freezer is filled with beans (as are our dinner plates).

Isn't Munich a beautiful city?

I'm doing a lot of puttering right now, and a lot of knitting. I should be cleaning, but I just can't bring myself to do it. Oh, well!

Your garden is beautiful and I love the bunny. It seems very content to live in your garden. Your beans are so nice.
I hope you feel better today.
I love all of your flowers and that heart stand with the morning glories growing on it is just fantastic. I love heart shapes. Have a nice restful day.

Hi There!
I LOVE bunnies! You will have to check out my blog posts about the bunnies I bottle fed for 5 weeks and recently released. I still see them hopping in my yard from time to time. I am working on recovering pictures on my blog due to a Picasa issue, so if you don't see them just yet try again. All my script is there. Now I have to put all my pictures back in. UGH!!!!!
As for the soft pillow and nap ~ YOU GO GIRL!!! It is rainy here today and I am working on a crocheted baby sweater :)))
{and maybe a nap at some point...}
