Like a kid in a candy shop
I like plants. I guess I got that from my dad. His entire garden is full and over flowing with beautiful flowers and trees. It is really something to see! And right now the stores have all the flower bulbs , plants and seeds on sale. It's too hard to pass up! I finally have a garden to put them in! I am like a kid in a candy shop. I have got to stop buying bulbs! I have Lillis and Iris, Hollyhocks and Roses, Baby’s breath, Dahlias , Lilacs , Peonies and the list goes on. Just wait 5 years...we will have a park! Next Thursday the Rhododendrons, Hydrangeas and Azaleas go on sale. My parents come in week. I want my dad to help me plant a knot garden in my front yard. I have red, white, and blue perennials to plant in the center of the knots. I’ll also plant red , white and blue tulips. Should be fun! I have also bought flower bulbs for the house in Leimen. I want to go there some time this week and plant some more summer flowers. I will also put mulch on the beds so it’s low maintenance for the renters. The kitchen is going to be built today. It will probably take a few days for the countertops to be cut. We still hope we can sell, but most likely we will rent it out. That’s OK. Interest rates have dropped even lower. So we could save 400 Euro’s per month on interest (over what we would have paid if we had negotiated the loan last fall). We may even change the loan on our house in Bad Schönborn? But I’m not sure if that’s possible. If we can change our loan we can redeem everything we have lost over the past year (paying for 2 houses). I say Amen to that! I really liked the American family I showed the house to on Saturday. They want to rent a house for 2 years. If we need to rent, a family like these Americas would be really nice.
