It is the beginning of August and for us it is the middle of Summer but the heath and drought have ruined a lot of plants so now it looks like Autumn.
It is the second year in a row, I think we should start looking for plants that tolerate more heath and more drought.
I took this picture 2 days ago and now this tree is almost bare, all the yellow leafs have gone with the wind.
My gernaniums look all death, luckily I know they’ll come back when we have had a lot of rain and lower temperatures.
HENS AND CHICKS (sempervivum)
Even the hen’s and chicks are burned !!!! I have put most of my plants in pots in the shade but as we may not use the waterhose cos of the drought, I have to water them by hand, a huge job.
Have a great weekend all !
OPUNTIA FICUS INDICA BURBANK (PRICKLY PEAR)
You probably think I’m crazy but I am excited to have a new pad on my cactus, I started with one pad 2 years ago, last year I got a new pad and this year I got another one. I know for some people this is just weed as it grows very well where it is native but I live in Belgium and that is not exactly cactus paradise.
HERE IS A VIEW ON THE WHOLE PLANT AS IT LOOKS NOW.
I am pretty pleased with it.
The roses in my garden have hundreds of buds that will soon open up and change my garden in a lovely smelling place. I can hardly wait !!
