LATEST GARDEN PICTURES

It is Pentecost weekend over here and that means : long weekend ! The weather forecast was brilliant but…for some people it turned out to be a disaster. Parts of Belgium had severe thunderstorms with hail balls as big and some even bigger as ping-pong balls and they ruined gardens, houses, cars, greenhouses, plants, fruit  and vegg(ruined whole crops  !!!) and so on. So far we were very lucky we just had rain but the next couple of days and today they are expecting more of the same.

I took a few pictures in my garden for you to see, nothing special, just ordinary pictures.

WHAT IS HAPPENING IN MY GARDEN AT THE MOMENT

Winter was long, freezing and wet. We didn’t get Spring, we went from Winter into Summer so plants are way behind their normal blooming time. Normally June is the most beautiful time in my garden with lots of blooms but today my garden still looks pretty green.

I walked through my garden this morning and made some pictures for you.
