Geraniums and homemade strawberries

If you visited me and would walk up to our apartment
you would come across my window with the geraniums 

Maybe you remember when I bought them
at the Geranium market in here in Berne

They have grown a lot although they had a difficult start
 - it rained a lot this spring!

These strawberries were painted by Ina many years ago
and when the strawberry season comes, they come out of the deco cupboard.
Actually they are painted stones.  They are very precious to me.

And these are the strawberries I sewed some time ago -
I should make more in different sizes.
However,  I believe they are pretty and so colorful.

That's all for today!

Enjoy summertime!

  1. Wünsche ein herrliches erdbeerrotes Wochenende!

    ♥ Franka

  2. Hej Christa,
    die Erdbeeren sehen toll aus!
    Diese bemalten Steine kenne ich auch noch aus früheren Zeiten!
    Happy Weekend!
    Hier waren heute morgen 7°!!!!!!!

  3. Lovely geraniums, and I like your stone and fabric strawberries. How is it that people in Switzerland are really really successful at growing geraniums? The Swiss and the Austrians too, have a magic touch with them.

  4. Your geraniums look gorgeous and the strawberries is such a fun loving decorating idea!

  5. Hello Christa

    The view through your window to the geraniums is so peaceful and inviting. I can see why your treasure your painted strawberry and your beautifully sewn berries

    Have a glorious weekend

  6. Your geraniums are breath taking and I love your strawberries too!

  7. Those geraniums are gorgeous - one of my favourite plants - mine are not flowering yet. It's lovely to have the cute strawberries which have such sentimental value.

  8. The white and pink geraniums are rare I assume. They look lovely.


  9. I love it all, Christa! The hearts are so pretty, your geraniums remind me of Italy, my home and... you know how much I love windows (as I am very inquisitive, to put it mildly!)
    I love the image where you can see the buildings, across the street. It's all so charming!

    Have a lovely fine settimana!
