My Secret Garden

Do you fancy a zucchini, or more? How about 100? Several of our neighbours and friends have heard that question recently. That’s not surprising, since we started a zucchini production on a grand scale. We didn’t plan that way, but it turned out that way. Worse things can happen. In spring, when C2 planted the…

Wonderful Whales

What a mind-blowing experience: We saw our first whales! No planning was needed: We just walked on a beach, and suddenly they appeared.

Peace

Happy Holidays – and a Happy New Year (even a new decade) to all of you, hopefully filled with peace, love and adventures! Or as Neil Gaiman put it: “I hope you will have a wonderful year, that you’ll dream dangerously and outrageously, that you’ll make something that didn’t exist before you made it, that…

Christmas Island

‚Tis the season to be jolly … the first one we experience in Canada. And how colourful, shining and sparkling it is!
