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.
THIS IS DIANTHUS DELTOIDES OR STONE CARNATION, A TINY (IT IS ENLARGED HERE ON THIS PICTURE) CARNATION FOR THE ROCK GARDEN WITH TINY FLOWERS
ALCHEMILLA MOLLIS OR LADIES MANTLE, A VERY EASY PLANT WHICH SELFSEEDS ALL OVER THE GARDEN, A GOOD GROUNDCOVER
THE GOATS BEARD ( ARUNCUS DIOICUS) IS STARTING TO FLOWER, THIS CLUMP IS GETTING BIGGER EACH YEAR
CLEMATIS ETOILLE VIOLETTE, ONE OF THE EASIEST AND LONGEST FLOWERING CLEMATIS
AUCUBA JAPONICA, AN EVERGREEN SHRUB WITH FRESH GREEN LEAFS AND GOLDEN FRECKLES, IT BRIGHTENS THE WHOLE GARDEN IN WINTER, GETS BRIGHT RED BERRIES IN SPRING
THE BUDS OF THE HYDRANGEA MACROPHYLLA ARE STARTING TO OPEN, AFTER THE SOFT WINTER WE HAD I HAVE SO MUCH MORE BUDS THAN USUAL
Now I am going to work in the garden as the weather is still perfect here and there is lots to do as usual.
Have a great week and thanks for stopping by !
