I have a little garden where I try new plants and grow old ones. As this growing season is over now, may I share some pics from this year.

My spring starts with some traditional flowers like daffodils:



I love their cheery yellow colors after the long winter. At the same time lily-of-the-valleys start to grow but it takes some time before they are ready to flower.



They are like weeds here, they grow where ever they like and spread rapidly.

Soon maple gets itīs first leaves. Before them, the smell of honey from the maple flowers fill my little garden.



Dandelions of course - nothing stops them. This one is waiting a wind to send itīs seeds to all over of my garden...



I love bleeding hearts.



And dogwood flowers. When you look them closer, their tiny flowers are charming.



Spiraea betulifolia - not sure what is itīs name in English:



At this spring, the apple tree was full of flowers:



And then itīs a time of lily-of-the-valleys.



They and lupins cover my the front yard at the end of May.



Love that color - itīs so girlish pink.

Garden is a great place to relax after a workday. If doing nothing else, just sitting there in the middle of all that green color gives a green thoughts.

At the beginning of June, the gardening season can really start. At the May here is still quite cold days. Most of the beds are still empty but lovage has growth already well:



This celery taste herb is great with meat soups. At the old times people believed that it also keeps witches, snakes and frogs away and thatīs why they planted it near of the houses.


Lilac is one of my favorites:



This old bush is originally from my grandfatherīs garden.


From the herb garden - flowers of chives:




The old rhododendron - planted over 40 years ago. It was a gift for the Motherīs Day to my mother and years after years it grows and flowers:




Vegetable/herb garden changes greener and greener:




I have always thought that peonies look like a party dress of princess:

At the September, we can feel already the first signs of the autumn. Nights grow colder but the garden is still flowering.

Runner beans and the table of my summer morning coffees:




Morning glory:




Sunflowers are like a forest:






Runner beans gave a good harvest at this year:




At the end of September, the garden dresses red and gold:




The last flowers still fight against the fall:




But later, at one day...



...itīs a time of the first snow.


The winter has started and the gardener has time to sit in the comfortable chair, sip the hot chocolate, knit more socks and make plans for the next summer.

Very Happy

Thanks for watching those few pics from my garden from the summer 2016. Hopely you enjoyed your little tour.

Gardening is a relaxing hobby when I am not knitting. And if weather is nice, I can of course knit in the garden.

Very Happy
