MR FROSTY

Mr Frosty came and gave all the greenery a fine white layer of white crystals and made a dull garden pretty again.

ME(A)ET EATING PLANT

Plants that eat insects and small animals are quite fascinating but not for the  poor animals that drown in their juices…. But in Summer we visited some tropical greenhouses and they had some beautiful carnivorous plants.

I think these deadly flowers look really pretty but they hide several dead bodies inside, nature can be very cruel.

Have a great week and thanks for visiting my blog.

YELLOW, THE COLOR OF THE SUN

I love the color yellow as it is a merry color and it reminds me of the sun, even on a grey day, yellow brings a bit of sun in your life so I love to use yellow in my home and in my garden. Mind you, at the moment we have a heath wave and plenty of sun and my garden is begging for cooler weather and rain, lots of rain!

Here are a few pictures of the yellows in my garden.
