FOUR LITTLE CUTIES

I want to introduce you to 4 of my cuties. I received some gifts for New Year and I couldn’t find a place for them in my cupboards so I thought ; why not use it as decoration so I had a bit of a think and came up with this ; a decoration for my dining table.

In Spring I am going to repot them but for now I think they are happy, they get lots of light and sun if she shines but that is not very often in Winter here. In Spring I will buy 4 new little plants to fill these little black pots.

Have a great day all !!! And for those who have Summer at the moment : enjoy your garden as much as you can !!!

ABOUT CROATIA AND ITS FLORA AND FAUNA, IT’S FOOD AND ART (3)

THE FRESH FRUIT IN CROATIA WAS DELICIOUS AND THERE WAS PLENTY OF IT, THIS SMALL PRUNE WAS SO SWEET ! PROBABLY BECAUSE THE FRUIT OVER THERE GETS PLENTY OF SUNSHINE; MOST OF THE FRUIT HERE IN BELGIUM IS IMPORTED FROM ABROAD AND PLUCKED WHEN IT IS NOT RIPE, WE OFTEN HAVE TO KEEP IT FOR A FEW DAYS AFTER BUYING IT, COS WHEN WE BUY IT IT IS STIL NOT RIPE ENOUGH TO EAT IT, SO IT NEVER TASTES AS GOOD AS THE FRUIT THEY PLUCK WHEN IT IS READY TO EAT OFCOURSE !

LIKE IN FRANCE THEY HAVE A LOT OF PLATANS, I LOVE THE LOOK OF THAT TRUNK, LOOKS A BIT LIKE A PUZZLE

As I told you before, I always want to go to one or more garden centers whilst on holiday abroad, here are some pictures I took during our visit to a large local garden center. Mind you, it was a bit of a shock to see the prizes, they were huge ! compared to what we pay in Belgium.

FOR THE PRICE OF THIS CONIFER YOU COULD BUY A SMALL CAR !!!!

There was nothing there that I couldn’t buy here in Belgium and for a lot cheaper but I enjoyed my visit to the garden center a lot never -the -less

To be continued…

Have a great day all and enjoy your garden ! Thanks for stopping by !Greetings from a rainy, windy Belgium .
