My neighbour must have received a drill for Father's Day and he decided to use it today at half past eight in the morning. That is why I was woken up very early despite being a Sunday. In addition, our plans to go for a long walk had had to be cancelled because of the rain. So I had time today to write this post in which I will tell about we are doing in our patio to get it ready for the new season. After all, today is the first day of Spring!!!
Last Thursday I repainted the patio chairs. they have lots of layers of paint, but they are still in good conditions and I expect they will last for many more years to come.

Pedro and I have also put the mosaic I made in my pottery class on the wall below the window. It looks pretty good there, I hope it will withstand the test of time. It will my legacy for future generations.
Now it is also time to look after the flower-pots. I have removed the plants withered by the cold and have filled the pots with new flowers.
And it is also the time to sow some seeds in good earth with the hope that something grows before birds or heat end up with new seedlings.
We look forward to our grand-children's visit in August and for them we
have installed two small gardens in the patio. One will be a jardin potager where Pedro will grow
aromatic and culinary plants, and I will grow flowers of various
kinds, especially flowers to dry.

When it stopped raining this morning, we went to the plant nursery to get some seeds for the gardens.
