The Geranium I bought from Aldi this year, around 4 or 5 Euros if I remembered correctly. I pruned it immediately for a more reasonable plant structure and better growth.

It offered us gorgeous flowers for about two months, then I removed it outdoor for taking a rest.

It's doing well and staying in the greenhouse again now.

Meanwhile, three daughter plants are well rooted and transplanted into one raised bed in the greenhouse.

The Joy that is much much bigger than 6 Euros.

Every Friday has a new meaning to me. We will go to Lidl in the very early morning for the 3Euro food rescue bags. I got two today and used it for making lunch for us and our neighbors.

I have baked another banana bread last night, so it is at the tasty condition after cooling down and resting for 12 hours.

I love the color combination, everything from scratch.

With a little bit whipping cream and a cherry, the cake looks even more inviting.

Final Presentation and Guten Appetit!

For all the herbs and roses that were not good enough (or I am not sure how they taste like) to join my herbal tea collection, they became the materials for me to make herb pillows.

My newbie sewing skill is just enough to make them, and this makes me happy.

I tried to add a little bit Asian touch, very gently.

Octopus shape sausage

I made a new batch of Tiramisu, with coffee liqueur and canned sour cherries last night. It has to stay in the fridge at least 12 hours to ensure a proper texture of the lady's finger cookies.

Mini fried dumplings, so cute
