I AM GETTING FED UP !!!

How on earth can I do some work in the garden when it is constantly raining !!!??? Todays weather forcast : 19 C°(I can live with that) but rain all day and tomorrow and…..for the next 10 days. So I decided to do some repotting and potting up inside, it’s dirty I know but I have to do something usefull don’t I ?

The weeds are growing like mad and my husband can’t help me with the weeding as he doesn’t know the difference between a plant and a weed ! So if I let him loose on my garden I don’t think I’ll have many plants left ! Is it my immagination or have you noticed as well how clever weeds can be ? It is as if they look for plants with about the same leaf shape so you won’t notice them at first sight but since I know how they operate  I look even more carefully. They say that weeds are just plants in the wrong place , weeds can be beautifull and sometimes I let them grow when they are not in the way, BUT you have some really really vile weeds who are almost unremovable ! I hate those !!!

THIS IS A SEMPERVIVUM THAT I REPOTTED, THIS ONE IS WINTERHARDY BUT I PUT IT IN THE GREENHOUSE DURING WINTER AS THEY HATE IT TO HAVE SOAKED SOIL

HERE ARE SOME OTHER REPOTTED SEMPERVIVUMS I DID EARLIER, YOU CAN SEE MY VERY SAD FIGTREE IN THE BACK, BUT HE IS MAKING PROGRESS, ON THE LEFT YOU SEE THE TABLE I USE FOR POTTING AND REPOTTING, MY OTHER SUCCULENTS AND MY CACTI WILL STAY INSIDE FOR THE TIME BEING

THIS IS MY FRENCH PELARGONIUM, I FELL IN LOVE WITH IT WHEN I SAW IT IN THE GARDEN CENTER, AT FIRST SIGHT YOU THINK IT IS WHITE BUT IT’S COLOUR IS OF THE SOFTEST PINK YOU CAN THINK OF WITH DARKER PINK LINES AND BEAUTIFULL STAMENS, I LOVE IT !!!

I am going to do some inside gardening now.

HAVE A GREAT DAY !

GREEN GREETINGS TO ALL OF YOU !
