Autumn again.

Whole summer I was preoccupied with the remodeling project in the house. The garden practically got neglected. I made sure it got water regularly and occasionally planted few fresh flowers in pots. But looks like it did not mind it at all. I always liked a bit of a wild and slightly overgrown feel and that what I got now without trying😜

Red & purple dahlias and blue hydrangeas

Summer Containers

After the gardens in Hearst Castle I was afraid to come back home and be disappointed with my own, but my flower pots look cheerful and bright, so I am quite satisfied after all.

Climbing Rose Story

My farther in law loved roses. He always had a specific opinion on what it should look like, sometimes different from my own. He helped me to pick this one, and we planted it together. It's been 3 years ago. He is no longer with us, but the rose is thriving and reminds me of him every time I smell that delicate scent and admire the color and abundance of it's flowers. What a great way to be remembered!

April Roses

What a week of hot weather can do! It's only April, but roses are in full bloom, and they are huge and gorgeous. This picture hardly gives justice to a real beauty of this classic flower. Year after year you see them, but never get tired of them, and never can have enough of them. Somehow the roses you grow yourself are so much more exciting than the ones you buy in the store.
