Can you smell it? There's something in the air.
"Wait, we will send the patrol officer to check it out." - "Yes, that's definitely rose fragrance that is spreading out in the Gwundergarten."
It's July and yesssss, the roses are still blooming! This is the Gerbe Rose.
Winchester Cathedral, who is behaving a bit naughty in the white border...
... because at the same rose tree, the flowers are white AND pink. Tse, it just throws my gardening plan overboard. That is really no good behaviour!
Pauli (Paul Noël) goes now into the third week of flowering.
Rose Isphahan flowers beautifully and smells even better.
Need a headache medicine? Take an Aspirin :o). Here the Aspirin Rose.
Rose Penelope would need a bit of cleaning. I should go dead heading the roses again.
No, that's no dianthus but a rose too: it's the Fimbriata Rose. Last year I gave it a better place to grow and now it became very big and full of flowers. A great rose that I can only recommend.
Auch Ihre königliche Hoheit, Princess Anne scheint in ihrem blauen Topf zufrieden zu sein.
Her Royal Highness, Princess Anne, seems to be happy too in her blue pot.
And a close-up from her Highness.
Have a look into this honest and open face. I'm still very fond of David Austins rose Lady's Blush. She's plain but a plain beauty.
Girls meeting beside the terrace: Anne Boleyn, Eglantyne and her Highness Princess Alexandra of Kent.
I still have to fuss over little rose Grace. Rozanne (geranium) in her neighbourhood is a bit overeager and I have to cut it back now and then, so that Grace can breathe .
But this two have fallen happily in love: Clematis Arabella and Brother Cadfeal... love is in the air... tralala.
With those two love goes through the tummy. A view that I like, because seeing them munch means that they are feeling well.
Da kriegen sie schon auch mal einen extra für sie gepflanzten Kopfsalat zum Mampfen. Sollen ja als Häschen auch nicht leben wie ein Hund, nicht.
As they get ever a home grown salad spent from me. Bon appetite!
But back into the garden. This beautiful lavender was signed as a Hidcote in the garden centre. I just had to buy it, but I guess it must be a different kind of Hidcote lavender with such bright flowers.
And I bought another Verbena bonariensis, because the last one did vanish during winter. However, I hope it likes now the new place to grow and will spread its seeds for returning next summer. Insects love its flowers.
Silene coronaria has no problems in seeding itself . I have never planted one but every year I find it growing at another place. It may stay in my garden because it fits in well.
Well, there has somebody confidence into its glue. I'm not sure that it was a wise decision to choose once bed at such a place.
There is a clever snail. I'd prefer a bed in the ilex too.
Or a bed in the flower pot. It's stunning what big holes those little animals can scoop out.
Ich mag Falter aller Art. Ihre Zeichnung ist so faszinierend.
I love moth, they've got such beautiful colours on their wings.
Es krabbelt und wuselt wieder auf allen Blüten.
Crawling is back on nearly every blossom in the garden.
Hach, ist das anstrengend!
Uff, how exhausting!
Phew, got it! Now I have to be careful not to fall down, else I have to start it again.
Here's looking at you, kid.
Like from a magical world.
Well, on this photo the dragonfly was faster than me. However, I like the picture anyway with all this sparkling and bling-bling in the background.
Just girls stuff, pha! Have a lovely Sunday and a great week!
