How an unusual ritual led to fewer child marriages, less flooding, a boom in girls’ education — and a cultural transformation. — Read on reasonstobecheerful.world/india-village-tree-planting-ritual-daughters/111 Trees Per Daughter Changed This Village’s Future — Cathy’s real country garden
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.
HAVE A GREAT WEEK AND TAKE CARE.
I walked arround in our street with my camera to take a few shots of the lovely Spring flowers our neighbours have in their front yard.
I never saw this before so I was surprised and took a picture of it. I don’t know what tree this is.
I can’t believe it is almost mid May. The weather hasn’t been great so far, that is the reason everything started flowering later than usual. It was cold, windy and sunny when I took these pictures.
Today has been soft but we had sun, rain and wind but between the rain it was nice to be outside. I planted some veggies and herbs in the garden. I never have been this late with planting. But as we were told there won’t be nightfrosts anymore I could finally start planting.
Next time I’ll show you what is flowering in my garden.
Have a great week ! Keep safe, we are nearly there !!
TODAY IN THE GARDEN
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 !
IT’S DEFINITIVELY SPRING !!
HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND ALL !
DO YOU KNOW WHAT THIS IS ?
Have a great weekend all !
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.
