RECENT PICTURES FROM THE GARDEN.

As we had warm and sunny weather lately, the garden came to live again, earlier than usual, it was unusually warm for March. But the good weather is about to end and Mr Frost will be back. We urgently need rain as everything is bone dry, despite all the rain we had during Winter. I have sandy soil in my garden so it rapidly dries when we get sun and wind.

NARCIS
AZALEA
SKIMMIA

The bees are having a ball in my skimmia bush, I love the sound of the bees buzzing. And the flowers smell so nice. This small bush is planted next to our terrace so it is nice sitting on our terrace with a coffee or a drink at the moment.

SAXIFRAGA
CHIVES

And my chives is on the grow again.

Have a great week all !

NEW LIFE

Outside it’s chilly, windy and wet but it is too warm for Winter so lots of plants and tree’s are starting to grow again. But the problem is that the weather can change for the worse and we can still expect snow and severe frost untill mid May and some years even later. Then all that new life that is growing now will be dead but most plants can grow again later in the year.

My garden looks dull, apart from the evergreens there is nothing to see. I had lots of rosebottles and red berries but they are all eaten by the birds now.

LICHEN AND MOSS
NEW BUDS
EUONYMUS EMERALD AND GOLD, ALWAYS LOOKS AS IF THE SUN IS SHINING ON THIS LITTLE BRIGHT BUSH
SKIMMIA, ALWAYS THE FIRST TO BLOOM, HERE THEY ARE STILL IN BUD BUT THEY’LL SOON START TO BLOOM
I HAVE 2 OF THESE HUGE AUCUBA BUSHES IN MY GARDEN AND IN WINTER THEY LOOK GOOD BETWEEN ALL THE GREY AND BROWN

HAVE A GREAT WEEK AND TAKE CARE.

LEAFLESS BUT STILL PRETTY IN THE SUN

Today is November the 5th, the weather has changed and we had a first light night frost, it is a lot colder during the day too. I wonder what Winter will bring weather wise as it is always a surprise now. When I was young, a long time ago, we knew what Winter would be like, it could be cold or horribly cold but never warm and sunny, never 20C° + on a Christmas day.

HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND, KEEP SAFE AND ENJOY YOUR GARDEN WHENEVER YOU CAN.

AT THE MOMENT IN MY GARDEN

I took a few pictures of how my garden looks at the moment, there is not a lot of beauty left but that is normal for October. The weekend was sunny and warm but now it is raining very hard. Not that I mind as we need this water for the garden.

I find it always sad to see all the flowers going, the leafs falling and most of the garden boring and brown but as you can see, the skimmia is already ready to flower in Spring, isn’t that amazing !!?

Have a great week and thanks for visiting.

IT’S DEFINITELY AUTUMN

Today is September 19th and we can feel, see and smell Autumn is here. Summer was cool and wet with here and there a few hot days. I have been taking pictures this month and you can see how nature is changing. Despite all the rain we had it is still dry but we live on sandy soil and it doesn’t keep water for long.

WHEN THIS SEDUM IS IN BLOOM SUMMER IS AS GOOD AS OVER
