Chefinsache

P1200045On Friday one of my team members has left for a new assignment and we had a little office party…a nice French-style petit déjeuner, with favorite coffee brews, croissants & pain au chocolat, jams galore and of course, beurre demi-sel…la classe!

I had prepared my gift, as Chefin, I like to give a personal present and since my former team member now will have to commute a bit longer under the NRW rain, a nice Espresso Inissia in Vespa-red seemed very appropriate for the young father of (soon) three…

But the surprise was that not only the Chefin but all the women in the team got a present with their calories-friendly petit-déj…a nice bouquet de fleurs. Today I opted for a restructuring of the bouquet, and in order to prolong the life of the flowers here is a little mezze de fleurs 😉

The tree section comes from Schloss Dyck…

Oh Tannenbaum?

P1180425How beautiful are the landscaped fields around Schloss Dyck…who would have imagined that these herbs (whose name I have forgotten…Miscanthus maybe?) would be so golden in the Winter?

Not Spanish steps

P1150329When we were living in Rome every Spring there was this feeling….strolling out for the lunch break, one day one realises that the azalee have been displayed on the Spanish steps. I never managed to spot the specific moment in which the work is actually done, but each Spring I would marvel at the sight.

No Spanish steps at Schloss Dyck, but the same bewilderment, especially because of their strong sunny perfume…

Souvenir of Madera

P1150340I always identified Hydrangea with “the plant which pops up in the northern corner of the garden”…as a kid I used to put nuts and bolts close to its roots, to increase the color. It was only in Madera that we realised the mighty hortensia power…entire underwoods of overflowing hydrangeas, and island employees busy cutting down the shrubs with machetes every morning.

Apple, the fruit

P1150284Apple juice is not something I grew up with, it is more of a German discovery for me. Today on the estate of Schloss Dyck it seemed just the righ fresh drink to have…
