THE SMELL OF ROSES

I haven’t been blogging for a while but I just needed a break. There is so much to do at the moment that I just don’t know what to do first. I think you all know what I mean.

But the roses are starting to bloom so I had to take some pictures for you to see, pitty you can’t smell them !!

Have a great week and thanks for visiting !

TODAY IN MY GARDEN

PICTURES OF MY GARDEN

We are having a heathwave ! We go from cold to hot in one day, we can’t cope with it nor can the plants. And it has been extremely dry for a while, we live on sandy gound that dries out very quickly.But never the less, I enjoy it, everything grows and grows, with a little help of the waterhose ofcourse. We can eat outside morning, noon and evening with a nice view on the whole garden. What more do you want ??!
