The summer came on Friday - only two days make a miracle.
Everything is growing so fast, the birches have leaves, the maples are in bloom...
If this is not happiness, what is?

My frog beside the pond sings salute to the summer!

Yellow is not my favourite color, don't know why I have so many yellow tulips!

Peonies in good growth!
Omphaloides verna

Corylus avellana 'Fuscorubra'

Drymocallis rupestris

My first modest terrace bouquet of this year!


Collage for Mosaic Monday

I have spent hours in the garden just enjoying the wonderful weather!

Watching a bit ATP tennis from Rome where Andy Murray played
so poorly and was defeated by Fabio Fognini!
In the final Novac Djokovic was not at his best either
and was defeated by the amazing & young Alexander Zverev from Germany!

This book La carne - Flesh by Rosa Montero was good summer reading,
so far available only in Spanish & Italian.

Wishing you too happy moments in the garden!

    the pictures are amazing, but your little frog is the best frog I have ever seen, how he is singing his welcome to the spring, very lovely.

  10. No wonder your little frog is so happy he's living in a beautiful place. I don't seem to be able to see your mosaic, could be the page needs refreshing?
    Anyway, Happy MM!

  14. When summer comes all in a rush and fills our eyes with green and pretty things, our spirits lift in response. I'm so glad the warmth of the sun has returned. Enjoy each moment!

  15. Thank you Ritta for sharing your wonderful photos of your garden. The black and white tulip flower head is stunning.

  16. Happy Spring ...almost summer weather! It is happiness for sure. Yellow flowers are my favorite ... (But the beautiful tulips would die from the heat here in Florida, so I know they are happier where they are). Thank you for sharing them !

  17. Very beautiful and colourful flowers.

  18. I adore your "modest" terrace bouquet. It is very beautifully constructed. An inspiration to us all.
