The 10 garden balls

Wednesday, May 31, 2006


I've called this photo "The 10 garden balls" can you see why ;-)

I can never get enough of Allium photos, I hope you don't mind

Oh and here is a new photo of our cat Samantha (Sammy) that I took yesterday

Digitalis (biennial foxglove) is growing niceley, can't wait until it blooms!

It's still raining

Friday, May 26, 2006


and because I can't enjoy my favorite place anymore, which is this:

nor can I work in the garden without drowning and they forecast no better weather for next week, I've decided today to go back to work on Monday and continue my vacation sometime in June. I just need the warmth of the sun to feel that I can have a really relaxing vacation even or especially when I "only" stay at home.

Two more pictures that I took on Monday this week:

A happy weekend to all of you!

Fave color!

Besides of beautiful white and blue; purple, magenta and pink are my favorite flower colors, all the above beauties (and more) are blooming in my garden at the moment. What a pity that it rains and rains since two days. The photos were taken on Monday afternoon.

Clematis "multiblue" and rusty iron birds

Tuesday, May 23, 2006


So yesterday was the first day of my vacation/holidays (the first day of 3 weeks !) and in the morning we've had a thunder storm and it was raining heavily, but luckily the wind blew all the clouds away and in the afternoon the weather changed and suddenly the sun came out and it was wonderful! I've been puttering around a bit and then I began to read a new book in my deck chair and later I took some new garden photos. That's exactly how I like my vacation to be!

Clematis "Multiblue" is in full bloom now:

Al/Sigrun, do you recognise this rusty iron ornament? I've just attached an iron ring to mine, so that I can put balls or small pots in it.

Centranthus ruber is going to bloom soon!

A little iron bird is nesting in my rosemary pot instead of using the bird house ;-)

Today it's litterally pouring down the whole day (it is 9.30 pm now and still is) and all my watering cans and the water barrels are filled and I think it could stop now. It's very windy too! I took these photos of my blooming aquilegias 2 days ago:

Yesterday I've picked some flowers for a vase, so that I can enjoy them in the house as well when it's raining cats and dogs outside

Some May flowers

Thursday, May 18, 2006


Yesterday we've had the last day of the beautiful weather period and I took some photos of May flowers in my garden. Today is the first rainy day of the last 3 weeks. I guess my garden will love it, but I hope this greyness will not last too long!

The first alliums and clematis at my rose arc are finally blooming:

The wisteria is in full bloom now

I've bought a new little syringa/lilac two weeks ago and it has also just started to open it's tender blossoms

Well and this in the two last photos is my virburnum opolus, it hast just changed it's color from a beautiful light green to white. Don't you also think that the blossoms looks almost like a hydrangea, just smaller?

More garden photos

I hope you don't get tired of me posting just garden photos at the moment, but I've passed all my free time out of doors for the last two weeks because of the splendid weather we've had and therefore I had no time to do any crafts etc..

The black crow & the black cat

Friday, May 12, 2006


The black crow and I are enjoying to watch the wisteria flourishing

My black cat Samantha (we call her Sammy) is also always enjoying the garden with me, we love spring!

Some more impressions


out of my spring garden. It's so exciting to see something new grow or bloom every day and to decorate it is so much more fun than it was in winter:
