I love how the walled garden is developing. There are still some gaps in the beds and I´ll definitely do some regrouping in the autumn (there is one corner that is all blue and another that is all pink, not what I am trying to achieve!). Isn´t the baby´s breath pretty here? I´ll definitely get some more of these.
I have to say I wasn´t an avid gardener before we moved here, but I am sure turning into one these days. I am constantly clipping and watering and replanting and reconsidering and reading seed catalogues like the bible. I think the husband is quite amused. Also I´ve started to collect garden books. Do you have any recommendations? I´m not looking for the basic stuff but for gorgeous photography of gorgeous gardens. Inspiration material for the remaining 2,000 square feet of garden we still need to landscape!
Look at my delphinium. It has the greatest color, yes? I got it as a tiny plant and it seemed to die off in the first weeks, but then suddenly it went crazy. That´s why I have a very late delphinium in my garden!
Unrelated, a little summer story: Yesterday when I arrived at home, there was no power. In the entire village. The outage lasted until 11pm and for some reasons at dusk, our neighbours started to gather on the village street. There was beer and laughter and many mosquitos, and it was all quite romantic. I loved it. The End.
PS: I decided this blog needs bigger pictures. Do you like? I assume it makes my archives look funny...
