Ok, so I’ve made that up… however, I have started a new project which requires heavy weeding and the rearranging of a rock border.
There are old pavers to be removed and rocks replaced. It’s always rewarding to see the weeds gone and a new project evolving.
The light is dappled and I can work at my own pace under the shade of the lilac tree.
Further around the garden I can see figs ripening with the hostas looking on.
After a day’s lifting, weeding and rolling rocks into place, I’m quite pleased with the result. Cats also inspected the new garden bed!
What are your favourite plants for afternoon dappled light??

For all you gardeners and historians – Hluboka nad Vlatovou (Hluboka Chateau on the Vltava River) – grand gardens filled with hostas, roses, peonies and zinnias. So opulent and wonderful.
Some summer inspiration for you. Happy botanics and happy gardening. Love this sunshine.
These hot pink geraniums are putting on a show this summer.
These stunning camellias never fail to impress, year in year out. Enjoying the start of Spring.
Sometimes you just don’t know what you will encounter on a walk!
Garden meets seaside Sorrento. Beautiful succulents, Eco shop and recycled metals.
Record rainfall over the last few months have prevented me from spending time in the garden. We have had snow, wind, hail and low level flooding! What a winter!
I guess this little fellow is waiting patiently for my return. Shortly, I will be able to show off my new veggie patch and restored chicken house – now a potting shed! Waiting for the sun and some warm weather. Look out for my posts soon.
We are reaching the end of our stay in Prague. It was more than expected – a truly wonderful city. Here are some gardening ideas to bring home – we should all have at least one window box or the like.
They are often simple geraniums in bold colours.
The full sun and the heat from the masonry walls ensure a dramatic display.
Begonias are another popular species for window boxes. These can be found in the windows of most residences and restaurants – delightfully simple.
(oops, I think this ivy is fake!)
Some need a little more love.
This red geranium is at Prague castle. Ok, this may be too much. However, none of these are beyond the average home gardener, like us. Happy gardening!
