Never before was my garden so green and lush and with so many flowers at the end of May, we had enough sun and warmth and lots of rain once in a while so the garden is doing well. I still have a lot to do in the garden as we are in the middle of house renovations, so the garden was left to look after itself.
Today was a holiday over here and the weather was perfect for working in the garden so I could do a lot and enjoy the view once in a while when I needed a bit of a rest.
Here are some pictures.
THIS IS MY VERY FIRST PASSION FLOWER, I PLANTED IT LAST SUMMER BUT IT DIDN’T FLOWER LAST YEAR, THIS YEAR IT IS FULL OF BUDS AND THE PLANT HAS GROWN SPECTACULARY, IT IS PASSIFLORA CAERULEA, ONE OF THE MOST WINTERHARDY PASSIONFLOWERS
