I cannot believe it is August already ! Lately we have had quite a bit of hot weather so everything is growing like mad, however some plants suffer from the heath. The fuchsia flowers and the roses don’t stay fresh for long and I can’t keep up watering all the pots. But I am not complaining as I love being outside, sitting on the terrace and looking at the garden.
The birds and the bees and the butterflies apparently love my garden, they are everywhere but they are very hard to catch on camera. But I am happy to have them in my garden and I love to see they like it.
JUST A FEW DAHLIA’S
I GAVE MY FUCHSIA’S A SHADIER PLACE AS THEY REALLY DON’T LIKE THE HEATH
DURING THE DAY I GIVE THEM EXTRA SHADOW WITH AN UMBRELLA
MY FIG TREE, HERE YOU CAN SEE IT HAS A SMALL SPACE TO LIVE IN, APPARENTLY FIG TREE’S LIKE THAT

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you all had a wonderful weekend ! Enjoy your garden !
We had snow and artic temperatures this week, even during the day ! Although we get signs Spring is getting closer. Normally my Amelanchier is in bloom the 1st of April but not this year, the buds are becomming bigger but they have to become a lot bigger before it’ll start blooming, first you get the flowers and together you can see tiny leafs unfolding and by the time the flowers fade (after about 10 days) the leafs are all there. Whilst in bloom it is covered with buzzing bee’s and bumblebee’s having a ball ! Soon after the flowers the tiney fruits are there, at first green, later red and then the birds are having a ball feasting on the ripe berries.
HERE YOU CAN SEE THE BUDS, THEY ARE BIGGER THAN IN WINTER BUT THEY HAVE A LONG WAY TO GO BEFORE THEY’LL BE BIG ENOUGH TO BLOOM
As there is nothing I can do outside I started to repot my cacti and succulents in the house, the sun is shining and the light is bright so my cacti and succulents love it after a long grey and dark Winter, and some show signs of growth.
Have a great day and enjoy your garden if you can ! Thanks for stopping by !
