December 4th, 2018: Starting with the blooms in December is never good news. Perhaps a surprise, but the mild climate of these days has also surprised nature and see the first crocuses before Christmas surprise a bit '.
Blame the bulbs, the fault of the climate?
We'll see how the spring will go...
April 2019: spring began with a dry and mild climate but, after a few weeks, the rain finally arrived ... The blooms in our garden are a little late even if the first tulips begin to appear showing a little colored ... Protected by wet leaves take their time ...
The punctual muscari with their intense blue never miss their appointment. As soon as the weather mitigates me and the days get longer, suddenly appearing, bringing color and joy to the garden.
Finally the tulips. When we are almost at Easter they finally bloom with all their beauty and the colors that distinguish them. They certainly could not miss in our garden.
Despite the bad weather, even the Allium managed to bloom. It took a long time, because we are over the middle of May and this year the climate is still autumnal.
The time has come for roses too. With the first warmths of these
late May our very fragrant rose garden suddenly blossomed like every year.
From now on we look forward to summer flowers and the last blooms of roses.
With great joy and surprise this small but high flowerbed of zinnias, begliocchi
(careopsis tinctorium) and flowers that are still blooming and I have not yet identified well, has colored my garden even more.
Purchased in a bag of mixed flower seeds, I did not know until everyone blossomed what I would have had in the garden ...
A real beauty in the middle of summer!
This wasn't the best vintage for hydrangeas, but in the end, a couple blossomed anyway.
The largest plant has produced almost nothing, while the younger, smaller one has managed to give some small purple flowers.
