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 !!

A PEEK IN MAY GARDEN

It is almost the end of May and it is still cold and very wet. Nature is very happy with all the rain ofcourse but flowers and blooms are way behind . Despite all that I do have some flowers in bloom in my garden.

GARDEN PICTURES

At the moment we are having heavy rain , hail and a thunderstorm, it’s not too bad so I don’t mind as we need all the rain we can get at the moment.

More and more blooms are appearing in my garden and that makes me happy.
