Today, July 22nd, is the first real Sumerday we’ve had this year !! And it will be Summer till Saturday, then it will end with a big bang and lightning and lots of rain. As I am still recovering from my op this week I am going to enjoy every minute of this little Summer. I took some pictures today and yesterday for you to see.
MALVA, A FRIENDLY LITTLE FLOWER ON HIGH STEMS, SELFSOWING BUT CAN EASILY BE REMOVED WHERE IT IS NOT WANTED
MALVA IN THE SUN
HERE YOU CAN SEE PART OF THE GARDEN WITH THE POND, THE FENCE IS TEMPORARILY THERE UNTILL THE GRANDKIDS ARE OLD ENOUGH, YOU CAN SEE A CONIFER HEDGE AND OUR BIG OAK TREE, ABOUT 30 YEARS AGO A BIRD MUST HAVE DROPPED A FRUIT OF AN AMERICAN OAKTREE AND VOILA 30 YEARS LATER WE HAVE A NICE BIG TREE
LOOK WHAT I FOUND ON MY TAGETES, A BEAUTIFULL GRASHOPPER ! USUALLY THEY ARE A LOT SMALLER HERE.
CLEMATIS THE PRESIDENT, BLOOMING FOR THE 2ND TIME THIS YEAR
MY LILAC – BLUE HYDRANGEA
HERE IS ONE THAT IS MORE PINK, ALWAYS A SIGHT FOR SORE EYES
MY YUCCA IN A POT IN THE SUN, HE SUFFERED A LOT THIS WINTER AS I LEFT HIM OUT IN THE GARDEN FOR TOO LONG BUT HE SURVIVED AND IS DOING WELL NOW I THINK
BUDS OF KIRENGOSHOMA, A JAPANESE PLANT, IT WILL GET BELLSHAPED YELLOW FLOWERS
FUCHSIA MAGELLANICA, A SMALL BUSH, COMPLETELY WINTERHARDY (UP TO AT LEAST -18C°) THE BUSH DIES DOWN IN WINTER AND NEW SHOOTS EMERGE IN SPRING, BLOOMS FROM JUNE TILL THE FIRST FROST
ANOTHER FUCHSIA WITH SMALL FLOWERS, I THINK IT’S A REAL CUTIE, I DON’T KNOW WHAT IT’S CALLED THE LABEL JUST SAID “FUCHSIA”
LOOK AT THAT BLUE SKY ! AS YOU CAN SEE THERE ARE BUDS GROWING ON MY ALBIZZIA JULLIBRIZZIN
THE SUN SHINING THROUGH THE LEAFS OF MY ALBIZZIA
Well this will be it for today . I am going to enjoy this beautifull day !
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your garden !
