ABOUT A TREE

I have a thing for exotic tree’s and plants but as we live in a cold country it is not always possible but I try and sometimes it is a succes, like with my Albizzia Julibrizzin. It looks exotic and it is not entirely hardy but I have hadit in my garden for about 10 years now and up till now it survived quite low temperatures without help from me. So it is hardier than they say it is.

STILL FLOWERING

It’s official, we just had the wettest Summer ever on record !!!! and it shows in the garden, there is not much that survived elegantly and Autumn has been here for a few weeks now, but I am not complaining. There is still a lot of beauty in the garden.

Here are a few pictures I took today and earlier this week.

A PEEK IN MY GARDEN

Spring was awesome but as soon as Summer started it all went down hill, yesterday was the worst so far, 13 C° !!!! where as 25 is normal for this time of the year over here, we had LOTS of rain and wind, leafs and even small branches were blown off the three’s !!! Today is a lot better, the temps are back in their twenties and the sun  is shining through the clouds !

Here are a few  recent pictures of my garden.
