JULY FLOWERS

We have a very odd Summer this year, cool and wet so I haven’t as many flowers as usually. Last year it was so hot I spent hours in front of the fan. This year we got airco and voila, we haven’t used it even once 😀 But hey, I am not complaining, I like this cooler weather.

MALVA
DAHLIA
ICE FLOWERS(mesembryantemum)
BEGONIA
ANOTHER DAHLIA
SOON TO BE FLOWERING : CROCOSMIA LUCIFER (bright red)
CUCUMBER HERB.(borage)

I just love the blue flowers of this herb. The plant is not really prettty but the flowers are. And it attracts a lot of bee’s.

I hope you are all well and happy. Take care and thanks for visiting.

CROCOSMIA LUCIFER

To remind you that we will see flowers again soon.

Greetings to you all.

A FEW RECENT GARDEN PICTURES

My garden is suffering at the moment, it has been hot and dry for quite a while now, not a drop of rain and my garden is not used to this sort of weather, I water my garden once every 2 or 3 days for as long as we are alloud to do so, some provinces in my country already have heavy water restrictions. I managed to take a few pictures of plants who still look good. A lot of plants and bushes have scorched leafs and look tatty.
