VIEWS FROM MY WORLD

UPDATE ON MY GARDEN.

Today, July 22nd, is the first real Sumerday we’ve had this year !! And it will be Summer till Saturday, then it will end with a big bang and lightning and lots of rain. As I am still recovering from my op this week I am going to enjoy every minute of this little Summer. I took some pictures today and yesterday for you to see.

MALVA, A FRIENDLY LITTLE FLOWER ON HIGH STEMS, SELFSOWING BUT CAN EASILY BE REMOVED WHERE IT IS NOT WANTED

MALVA IN THE SUN

HERE YOU CAN SEE PART OF THE GARDEN WITH THE POND, THE FENCE IS TEMPORARILY THERE UNTILL THE GRANDKIDS ARE OLD ENOUGH, YOU CAN SEE A CONIFER HEDGE AND OUR BIG OAK TREE, ABOUT 30 YEARS AGO A BIRD MUST HAVE DROPPED A FRUIT OF AN AMERICAN OAKTREE AND VOILA 30 YEARS LATER WE HAVE A NICE BIG TREE

LOOK WHAT I FOUND ON MY TAGETES, A BEAUTIFULL GRASHOPPER ! USUALLY THEY ARE A LOT SMALLER HERE.
