just a glimpse of the garden

It has been quite typical English summer week; we had both sun and rain, temperatures quite pleasant, 20 - 24°C. We had quite a bit of rain earlier in the week, welcomed for the garden, but it also did some damage to the flowers.

It was very good for the mini cucumbers I planted in my small herb patch,

but what happened here?  

I found 13 of these little fellows on this one pelargonium having a feast.


But the rest of the garden is doing fine, the rain has done it good.

in the front garden the new lavender hedge is doing great

but the rain destroyed some of the rose blossoms

lots of colour in the porch; it can get very hot in here

lots of colour inside too

and hoya seems to be very happy in the kitchen

have a good week stitching!

  1. oh how cute are the mini cucumbers !! Caterpillar I had in my garden, they only ate the kapuzienerkresse, anything they did not want. Thank God. Beautifully your summer flowers are in the garden and in the house. the last few days it was here very hot 30 degrees and more. not my cup of tea. Dear Radka enjoy your beautiful garden. Greetings from Carmen

  10. You have a gorgeous garden, Radka!!! Thank you so much for sharing, and warm greetings from Montreal, Canada. :)

  11. What a beautiful garden! The weather must have been perfect this year to get such lovely blooms and I suspect quite a lot of "elbow grease" as well.
