Summer flowers time!!!
Rose time in the garden. The bushes in the front garden are full of flowers.
As well as the roses in the back garden that I moved there last year.
The front garden is a sea of flowers. Malves, campanules, lupin, among others..
The lilies flanking the stairs are beautiful too..
This pretty little red flowers were already in the garden. Last year I opened space for them and we have a lot of flowers this year. I think they are called Geum.
The delicate blue alliuns are opening…
Last year I let a lot of little wild daisies to grow, and this year we have a lot of flowers below de vine..
This one I don’t know the name. It smells so good, I think is a jasmine, but I have to find its name.
And the sweet peas growing on the chain fence of the kennel…
Every couple of weeks the garden changes, it is so cool.. So last days were peonies days, so beautiful.
The malves were just starting but soon it will be all covered in beautiful flowers. I love this part of the garden.
The lupins are beautiful as always, but the new ones I planted last year are full of Aphids and really affected. I will try an old brazilian gardening recipe, lets see if works around here…
The columbines were also planted last year, it is the first blooming. It is a very funny flower.
This allium is fully open now. It is short, and a cute presence in the garden.
Some beauties in vase around the new patio (I will post soon are progress there).
And the vegetable garden is growing. Look at these tomatoes!!
Sometimes I have the impression I can see the garden moving. Things change so fast, it is impressive. The front garden is colorful of phlox, myosotis and lilac.
But there is so many other colors and shapes all around…
I love lilacs. It is so beautiful and it smells so good. We have 2 lilac bushes that are probably not that young considering their size. One is really in need of some pruning… Lets see if I manage to do this year. Heavy work!
Spring is quite cold this year, but the garden is showing more and more colors.. It is impressive how things move fast here.. The picture above is from a beautiful tree from our neighbours.
In our garden we are at full spring show off. The Myosotis are everywhere. Even if I am cutting some to put inside and transplanting other to my other neighbours, we have a blue invasion.
They are so delicate.
The garden is also carpeted with pink and purple flower from the creeping phlox I planted last year. They are growing so fast, it doesn’t look like the purple ones were planted just one year ago!
So here it is. The pink, purple and blue sea of Phlox and Myosotis on the front garden.
The next picture also shows the improved front porch. I didnt make a final post on it because we still have to finish painting. But as it never stops raining, we have no idea when this will happen. But it is already so much nicer than before.
The blue sea continues on the front garden of the sideyard. But here it is from Muscaris.
The tulips were already fading on the picture above, but they were amazing. Just look the size of these flowers!
Another little tulip patch, at the back of the house.
The Narcissus are at full force too..
and the first anemone are opening..
We worked a lot outside this weekend. Lots of gardening and we started the patio in the sideyard. Now it is more a war zone, but it wont take long (I hope..). I took the time to appreciate all the beautiful flowers in the garden. Things move so quickly that sometimes I have the impression I can see them growing!
First the hyacinths,
then the Narcissus,
And a general view of the side garden:
Well, I was wrong in my last update… What is blooming on the lawn is the Scilla (and lets see how invasive it really is). I forgot I had planted the Chionodoxa under the lilac (pic above). They are all so cute.. These early spring flowers are a fantastic mood booster!
The hyacinths are opening and they smell so nicely. I planted three shades of pink, it will be beautiful when they are all opened (just 2 more days, I guess).
I planted a lot of narcissus, and the first ones are opening.
The bicolor muscari has its 2 shades more clear now.
The garden is getting more full of life and color everyday. It is so impressive how things go fast here!
