Spring is everywhere....

This beautiful yellow flower is the marsh marigold and is growing in our garden pond.
It's one of the first flowers in the pond and I love them.

Our pond last year in the middle of our garden.

It's incredible but for the third year the little blackbirds had built their nest in this old and rotten birdhouse! Last year we wanted to throw it away because we thought it would be raining in, but now we saw that it's inhabited again!
Next to this old house we hang a new one but that's empty! So you see that it's not important for birds if their house is beautiful and new.

Some other treasures from flea market

For me it's incredible that people give such nice stuff away for a flea market!!
This beautiful latern was the first thing I saw when I arrived. You can find this also in a garden center! I was so happy when I found this already the first minute and I didn't have to think long about it...

I found 12 from these high glasses en 4 from the other glasses.
I think I am going to use them to serve some little appetizer when we have a party. That will be a nice sight, all these glasses together on a tray.

I think this is an old beautiful jars. It was made in France and at the front there is written: "Le Parfait."
But maybe it is just my imagination and is this jars not so old and special as I think!!
