LIFE IS GOOD UNDER THE FIG TREE

I have a fig tree in my garden for about 10 years or so, it was planted and trained against our garage wall, in a hole we made in the pavement, it is not even a big hole and still the fig tree thrives in it and we get many ripe figs each year. And the tree grows like mad, I have to prune it several times in Summer.

I once got a small pot with blooming hyacinths and I planted it under the fig tree, but after a while it got company of a taxus which selfseeded and a euphorbia which selfseeded. And everything is thriving in that small hole so I think ; life is good under that fig tree.

Finally they are in full bloom, I have been waiting for it for so long now as they have been in bud a long time this year.

It is such a beautiful day with the sun, the blue sky and the warmth.

The buds of my syringa  ( vulgaris “Beauty of Moscow”) against the blue sky, I love it ! But they still have a long way to go before they are in full bloom, I hope I will have many blooms this year. I always cut them all for inside as I looooove the smell !

Have a great weekend all and thanks for visiting.

IT’S NOT MUCH BUT…

It’s not much but I love looking at it.

It is so  very cold outside but the sun is shining and I wanted to bring a bit of Spring inside.
