GARDEN PICTURES


I managed to take a few pictures in my garden, with only 1 hand it was not easy  :D. I do what I can but I miss my other hand !!! Everything looks so fresh and green at the moment and it grows and grows, we have sun regularly, it is not warm but we get rain almost every day, sometimes just a bit, sometimes a lot but most of my plants thrive in these conditions. In the second half of May we can put the more tender plant outside and only then I’m happy as these plants hate to stay indoors for such a long time, usually 6 month’s or longer !!!!!!

THIS IS SOME SORT OF PRUNUS WE USE AS A HEDGE IN THE BACK OF THE GARDEN, IT GROWS TO 6 METER HIGH AND SOMETIMES EVEN HIGHER, IT IS WINTERGREEN, IT GIVES OUR GARDEN SOME PROTECTION FROM STORM WINDS, THE BIRDS LOVE THIS HEDGE AS MANY OF THEM USE IT FOR NESTING AND FOR PROTECTION AGAINST THE RAIN

Have a great weekend all and I hope you’ll enjoy your garden !

  1. Happy May, Gwennie! Your garden is just lovely! I always look forward to my ajuga blooms, too. Your prunus has such shiny leaves and unique blossoms. I can see why the birds love it so! Wishing you healing days in the garden, Gwennie! ♡

  2. So, it rained, yes? I am really amazed to see your huge garden! You are doing a great work, you are really helping mother earth remain greener, and believe me even if it’s 0.1% of your contribution, it means a lot!
    Hope you have a Great Day!
