Thankfully, we have had much rain and warm days. The hot air is trapped here on the mountain – no better place to have breakfast than in my misty glasshouse.
Hot house flowers
Experimenting in my new glasshouse hothouse. Lettuce, begonias and a cat, so far. Very exciting. What else should I grow in here? All suggestions welcome.
One of the simple pleasures is breakfast at our local coffee shop with good book in tow. This morning these beautiful spring flowers welcomed me at the table.
I am reading Kate Llewellyn’s A Fig at the Gate (Crows Nest, NSW: Allen and Unwin, 2014). Her reflections on gardening and life are wise and considered.
Now I ready for a day in the garden. How have you started your Saturday?

crabandfish_garden for short reflections too. Happy weekend.
Actually it’s a peony farm with an old weatherboard chapel on site – divine. I absolutely love this time of year and these herbaceous peonies are stunning!
However, tree peonies are quite different – still beautiful though.
See my previous posts entitled The Peony Farm and Peony time to see the rows and rows of pink flowering blooms.

The linden tree
Kamenice nad Lipou – a gorgeous garden not far from where we are staying. The 700 year old linden tree was the star – it has weathered many storms, and with some support, survived the ravages and challenges of time – some people are like this too. ⭐️⭐️ ( by the way Lipou means linden😊 )
Check out its supports. Amazing tree. Happy gardening today.
Bulb planting time – spent the last few days planting tons of bulbs. These were dug up from a large clump and released from each other to start anew. Happy gardening and always be … botanical. 🙂 #
This weekend, do what’s important to you… Continue reading
