Garden viewing

Just a few pictures:
I especially like how the  wooden fence (2 m high) to our neigbor is grown all over by lots of blossoming plants: I planted a rambler rose, clematis, honeysuckle and two thornless brambles 2 years ago. At the ground golden nettles and vincas are running wild and on top a wisteria (climbed over from our neighbors side).

Some more blossoming plants:

Hydrangea named "firework" already showing some sparklers...

Another with round shaped and mixed coloured blossoms: lightgreen and pink...

Pink rambler rose giving the best at a wall of my house. There is a bumble bee nest nearby and the bumble bees are visiting this rose again and again and again, which irritates one of our cats royally. He is afraid of bees, wasps and bumble bees so whenever a bumble bee flies buzzing over him he will run into the house in lightspeed. Sadly his formerly most favorite place to take a nap outside is nearby. He is running quite a lot these days.

The dwarf nymphaeas are already showing their new leaves all over the pond (besides: lots of dragon flies this year, one took a short rest on my finger)


Hiroyuki hat gesagt…

I guess the your area is warmer than mine.
No hydrangea are in bloom here, and no dragon flies flying.

Fräulein Trude hat gesagt…

Yes, very warm - unusual warm, tropic heatwave. We had lots of heavy thunderstorms during the last days. Some trains are still not running, much damage in some areas, even some people died (lightning strokes, trees broke down).
