IN BLOOM TODAY

I took some pictures today of the flowers in bloom in my garden. I think June is about the prettiest month of the year.

A FEW RECENT GARDEN PICTURES

My garden is suffering at the moment, it has been hot and dry for quite a while now, not a drop of rain and my garden is not used to this sort of weather, I water my garden once every 2 or 3 days for as long as we are alloud to do so, some provinces in my country already have heavy water restrictions. I managed to take a few pictures of plants who still look good. A lot of plants and bushes have scorched leafs and look tatty.

WHITE OLEANDER

I finally found a white oleander, it is a small one but I hope it’ll grow. All I could find in the plant centers were red or pink oleanders but I love white flowers just a little more than other colours. Oleander is a potplant in my country.

Have a great day !
