Hello dear blog friends,
Sorry for visiting your last week’s links so late. The reason is that I have been busy with
many summer & garden projects, visitors & gettogethers. I’ll try to be more prompt this week.
It has been hot and very dry, watering necessary every evening.
But now that my husband bought himself a new TOY - i.e. a good sprinkler,
he has taken the responsibility of watering - and that is great.
Have you noticed that men always need new toys in order to get
enthusiastic at any household jobs? That is the case at least in my family.
Yesterday we got a bit of rain and I felt blessed. So funny that one can rejoice of rain!
In the garden pink & white theme continues. First two unknown peony varieties.
Spiraea japonica ’Odensala’ blooms in fluffy pink.
This shrub spreads eagerly and out of 2-3 shrubs I have got tens of them.
Clematis recta ’Atropurpurea’ looked fantastic this year!
It grows shrub-like and needs a support, preferably some shrub.
Here it covers a structure of rebar network.
But then came a disaster in form of a strong wind and many of the delicate stems got broken.
Pink Lilium martagon blooms in many places.
Here in a flower bed with Gillenia trifoliata.
There is a hint of blue as well - campanulas are in bloom.
Probably this wonderful lilac Campanula latifolia is a crossbreed of blue and white.
I made a casual bouquet with Campanula persicifolia and stormtorn Clematis recta.
It looked airy, as picked up on a summer meadow.
Wishing you wonderful & sunny July days!
