To get right groove for this post all Swiss readers or those who can understand our funny language should click on the video below:
I can honestly say that in our house we've got running water *LoL*. Well, my hubby thinks that this isn't funny at all. Sorry *smile*. He's right (just for once). When we got heavy rain it happens once or twice a year that the water runs directly through the wall into the boiler room. However it can't do no great harm there because the boiler is on a half-landing and in the next room is a drain. I know, we have to fix it... some time... after we've fixed other things in our old house.
And until then this little guy has its own pond directly in the house and Mrs Gwundergarten can do something for her health by having a Kneipp cure at home.
But now to the main topic: the green Hell. Have you got your machete with you? Yes, you will need it walking through my jungle. My garden would really need a caring hand. Everything is growing out of control.
But if nobody stops the heavenly water donation Mrs Gwundergarten can't go into the garden and I'm not sure that I will dare to do so later on, because of everything is growing that fast! It's like out from a horror movie. Strangled by the honeysuckle... what a name for a movie shocker.
Tulips in June... can't remember when I had this in my garden the last time. If you click the photo bigger you will see that the ants are working at the peonie bud. Well, they are definitely more weatherproof then I am. I prefer staying on the cozy couch.
But the short break of the rain I use to see what's going on in the garden. It seems as if the hostas love the wet weather.
As well as the mountain ash. Can't remember seeing it that green and so full of blossoms.
But else I really would need a machete to tidy up the garden a bit.
I dread the first dry day, when I have to make the hell and probably won't know where to start first with work.
Günstig gärtnern. Guck mal Elke, Deine Kleine macht sich wunderbar. Ehm, habe natürlich vor lauter Freude wieder ganz vergessen nachzusehen, ob sie auch schon Knöpfe hat... naja, sie wird es mir bestimmt beim nächsten Besuch verraten.
But there are also happy things to be seen in my garden. The rose from Günstig gärtnern . Have a look, Elke, your baby is growing very well. Sorry, I forgot to control whether it has already put on some rosebuds. Oh well, next time I try to remember to do so.
I'm not so sure that this rain shelter is a wise decision, my little green shield bug. I guess sooner or later you will get wet feet there.
Grrrrrrrrrr... this clematis hasn't bloomed the last few years and now I know whose fault it is.
Yes, you, you voracious thing! Why can't you just live from love and air? I guess then not so many gardeners would try to kill you. And there is so much weed in my garden, why not eating that stuff?!
I guess there won't be any firework this year from my tree peony. The water cleared it already.
But this little common peony is much harder. When I listened carefully I could hear it calling to its neighbour with a big smile in the voice: "Wimp!"
Wherever I look, I see work and a need of scissors *sigh*.
As I heard the weather forecast for the next week shall be better. I'm wondering if my boss would mind, if I just care about my green hell, instead of appearing at work. Let's call it an after rainfall compensation?!
Never mind, I just hope that the sun king will take up his crown again and send us some sunbeams... we all could use it well. Have a good start into the coming week.
Alex, die jetzt wieder kneippen geht.
