About 10 years ago Sietske started taking photographs of our home and garden. For this post we dived into the archives, and it was such fun discovering these images for you!
Some of these photos were taken 10 years ago, and in that time quite a few things change in a garden. We saw plants that aren’t there any more, and that are very much missed. But then there are plants that we very much love and are still glad to have in our garden!
This trip through past photos proved to be educational as well. I’m a very intuitive gardener, and don’t make proper plans and schemes. This can lead to pleasant surprises. I saw some flower combinations that I now love, but that I was rather uncertain about at the time. I’m not much of a red person, but the subtle red hue of the widow flower Knautia Macedonica together with a pink Bergamot flower is a very pleasant combination. I think I might repeat this combination again in the future.
It’s also good to see how replanting certain plants has really helped their development.
Indoors quite a few things changed over the years as well. I’ve always found it very exciting to move furniture around, and paint walls and woodwork in different colours. As with my garden, I am always looking for harmony in the designs I make.
We hope that you will also enjoy this little peek in our home and garden past!
