TODAYS GARDEN PICTURES

Today was a lovely sunny Sunday, ideal for gardening. There is soooo much to do in the garden !!! Cos of the good weather everything is growing fast, especially the weeds ! And since we haven’t had much rain for the past weeks I can’t keep up with watering the pots and all the new planted plants.

Ofcourse I took some pictures for you to see.

WHITE FLOWERING PIERIS

There are more blooms in my garden at the moment but I’ll show them next time. Everything is growing  so fast, especially the weeds, so there is a lot of work to do in the garden at the moment, I don’t know where to start as all jobs are urgent ! That’s cos of the beautiful weather we have had and still have. It is such a joy to be able to eat on the terrace again with view on the garden, the warmth of the sun, the bee’s buzzing….

Guess what I am going to do today !?

I hope you’ll all have a great Sunday ! Enjoy your garden !
