Pots of Prague

We have been visiting Prague to research some family connections (see my blog Findingstanvodak ). Even though this has been quite time consuming, not to mention difficult, as we do not speak Czech, we have still managed to incorporate some sightseeing. 

These beautiful pots caught my eye during a recent visit to the famous Prague Castle.

 Healthy begonias   Mixed geraniums  Great pot    Very formal  I don’t think any of these displays are beyond the average gardener! Just good soil, good pots and plenty of time.   

  Backdrop is nice! Happy pottering about!

He’s gone

For those who remember our resident kangaroo – here’s a recap. IMG_2683

This old fella came every day to visit. Despite him eating my roses, geraniums and most vegetables – he really was an old, gentle and quite friendly fellow. He used to come quite close to the house and simply stare up at us.

He was a big boy too – over six feet and very fast. He used to scare me when I walked in the garden on a moonlit night!  Even Albert cat liked him.

Recently, a neighbour told me they called the wildlife service to have him removed because he was annoying their dog. Poor fella – he’s gone now.

We saw him for the last time last summer. So this is my little tribute to this amazing creature.

Good bye old boy. We had fun! Wildlife is simply so special.
