LATEST GARDEN PICTURES


It is Pentecost weekend over here and that means : long weekend ! The weather forecast was brilliant but…for some people it turned out to be a disaster. Parts of Belgium had severe thunderstorms with hail balls as big and some even bigger as ping-pong balls and they ruined gardens, houses, cars, greenhouses, plants, fruit  and vegg(ruined whole crops  !!!) and so on. So far we were very lucky we just had rain but the next couple of days and today they are expecting more of the same.

I took a few pictures in my garden for you to see, nothing special, just ordinary pictures.

    • I think they look lovely, the picture I posted don’t do them justice, their colour is so bright you can see them from far although they are tiny flowers. They can have quite a bit of draught yes 😀
