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.

A MATCH MADE IN HEAVEN

When I was looking at the back wall of my house I saw my Passiflora Caruleum and one of my clematis Etoile Violette holding each other and I thought ; well this looks like a match made in heaven. They are clinging on to each other nicely. Although the passion flower is a vigorous grower it does not suffocate the clematis.

And now the passion flower is getting fruits, when ripe they’ll get a bright orange colour.

The rose you can see here is a rambler called Francis E. Lester and it has selfseeded in my skimmia White Kew bush , I don’t have the heart to remove it so I keep it small. Don’t they look good together !!!!! Also a match made in heaven if you ask me. Plants are soooooo clever !

Have a great weekend all ! And thanks for stopping by !
