PICTURES FROM THE GARDEN.

At the moment we get lots of rain, we welcome it with open arms. It has been so dry the past months and windy and hot, the drought was getting dramatic. Reserves are low as we have had several very dry years. Especially the farmers were getting desperate. It was even too dry to sow seeds.

But I took a few pictures of my garden when the weather was sunny and hot.

SNOWBALL (always a pretty sight in the garden)

CHIVES FLOWER ABOUT TO OPEN.

HOSTA
GERANIUM PHEUM

GERANIUM MACRORHIZUM (this is a superplant)

GERANIUM SANGUINEUM (blooms for a long long time)

The grapes are growing, the figs, the tomatoes and the peppers are growing so I am happy.

I am still working in the garden, trying to make it easier to maintain, less space for weeds as I am getting older, but lately it was just too hot for me, so when the rain is gone temperatures will be lower and it will be better to work.

Have a great weekend all !!

EASY PLANT :GERANIUM

If you are looking for easy plants in your garden then think of the geranium family, also called crane’s bill’s.

I am talking about the garden geranium, not the pelargonium that a lot of people call geranium as well, the garden geranium is hardy, the pelargonium is not.

They come in all colours, hights and shapes, they tolerate all sorts of soil, sun or shade, they don’t care. You can have geraniums in bloom from Spring till end of Autumn.  They also attract a lot of bees.They don’t disappear completely in Winter and that is a plus because then you know where they are. But they do selfseed, some more like others but personally I don’t care as they can be removed easily where you don’t want them.

I have taken pictures of the ones in bloom in my garden at the moment.

Have a great weekend !!
