END OF MAY PICTURES

Never before was my garden so green and lush and with so many flowers at the end of May, we had enough sun and warmth and lots of rain  once in a while so the garden is doing well. I still have a lot to do in the garden as we are in the middle of house renovations, so the garden was left to look after itself.

Today was a holiday over here and the weather was perfect for  working in the garden so I could do a lot and enjoy the view once in a while when I needed a bit of a rest.

Here are some pictures.

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.
