HAVE A GREAT END OF THE YEAR AND A FANTASTIC 2022 !!!!

THANKS FOR ALL YOUR VISITS AND LIKES AND COMMENTS.

TODAY IN THE GARDEN

FIRST FIG
THE LEAFS ARE STILL TINY, THEY WILL NEED TIME TO MATURE

I covered my fig during Winter, when we got our first beautiful Spring days I removed the coverings. Then all of a sudden we got a few unexpected nightfrosts and my fig tree took a beating, frozen tiny figs, frozen leafbuds…. But now it is slowly recovering and leafbuds are opening and here and there I finds tiny figs. The one above is the biggest. I fear I won’t have a lot of figs this year, as the first batch were frozen. But hey, my fig tree is still alive !

Have a great weekend !

EASTER SNOW

Christmas was soft and wet, for Easter we got snow. I wish my plants could speak and tell me how they feel about all this.

It snows and then it melts, then again it snows heavily and then it melts, it’s ok for me but I worry about my plants as they are fragile after some warm weather we had, it is all in bloom or budding and we have frost at night…..

Have a great week all !

S.N.O.W.

We had snow last night, lots of snow, it is decades ago since we last had this amount of snow and more is comming our way. Yikes !!!! And it is COLD !!

A few pictures of my garden this afternoon.

Aparently the snow will stay for over a week and I so hate it. We are not used to it so we don’t have snowmachines to remove snow from the roads (only a few in the cities) so only salt is used but only on the big roads.

I hope you are all well and happy. Have a great week and stay safe.

FROST

THIS IS FROST, NOT SNOW

It looks like snow but this is just frosted fog, after the frost was gone the sun came out and gave us this beautiful blue sky.

I hope you’ll all have a great weekend.

FROZEN

Frost in the garden and a bit of sun, turns the garden into a Winter wonderland.

When I was taking these pictures in my garden my puppy fell through the thin ice cover on the pond, lucky she was able to come out quickly. I wrapped her dry with a big towel and kept her with me wrapped in a fleece blanket. I was shocked as she is tiny (mini Maltese).

Have a great weekend all.
