A TRIP TO THE GARDEN CENTER

This morning I went to a nearby garden center , I wanted to buy some colourful annuals for my pots but I didn’t really find  what I was looking for, all though they had a lot of choice. I couldn’t leave empty handed of course ! I found some bargains and a few annuals in the right colour. One of the bargains was this nice big aeonium for only 2 euro’s, that is about 3 dollars !!!  I hope his leaves will get darker in the sun. I couldn’t leave that behind, could I ?!!

THIS IS A PURPLE AUBRIETA, A WINTERHARDY PERENNIAL, PEOPLE ALSO CALL IT “BLUE CUSHION”, IT IS A LOW GROWING GROUNDCOVERING PLANT

The last couple of days were cold but sunny, too cold for the time of the year and always windy ! Tomorrow we’ll have a cold wet day but as of Tuesday the temps will go higher with 1 C° each day, at night the temperatures still flirt with Mr Frost so my new babies will spent the next couple of days in my greenhouse.

I hope you all had a lovely weekend !!

FLOWER SHOW part 2

Today we had a very warm day, at least untill mid afternoon, then the sky turned grey and we can expect some heavy rain and thunderstorms. All the other days were cool with sun, clouds, wind and rain once in a while, very unpredictable. It is sooo difficult for us to plan a bbq !We always need a plan B.

Here is the second part of the flowershow pictures. It was a fuchsia show but there were other flowers on display too.
