Spring has finally found us. We have had lovely weather, with a temperature of 30 degrees C (86F) last Thursday. I am lucky because I had a few days off this week, a 6 day mini break. Lovely!
Our garden is flourishing and we enjoy it every day.
We have two kinds of clematis, they are blooming abundantly this year.
Our Salix had a lot of lice in them. I was considering spraying it when I realized Mother Nature was already taking care of the problem. Little birds have been feasting on the lice and now the tree is almost clean of the lice.
As you can see our peonies are starting to bloom. I am waiting for a nice flower to take photo's of.
Our red rose, also know as "dad's rose" as it was planted by my dad. This rose and a hydrangea are the only plants left from the garden as my parents planted it. Unfortunately the hydrangea hasn't bloomed at all. I think I cut it down too much. If that is the case it should bloom again next year.
Ants like the sweet nectar of peonies, it doesn't harm the flowers.
Our little hide away. We considered having the door on the left replaced this year. Since we decided having the bath room done, it'll have to wait.
This rose has a love scent.
Have an nice weekend!
