Garden Bloggers´ Bloom Day - March 2018

Dear readers,
have a happy Garden Bloggers´ Bloom Day - March 2018! I hope you are enjoying great weather for gardening as well as some pretty blooms. We had a week of wonderful warm weather in Vienna. It gave me the opportunity to not only enjoy blooms in my garden, but also to do some tidying up. With the help of a lovely friend, I finally removed the leaves that have fallen during autumn and winter. Now the garden is ready for a new happy gardening season to begin. Just that the weather is not in for it any more. After a week of sunshine and warmth, it´s getting colder again. Today was grey and dull and on the weekend it should get even worse. Minus seven degrees - everything but spring weather. Some people having locked away their warm winter jackets already, will need to pull them out again and gardening- well, it too seems to have to wait a bit. Luckily I had the chance to take some pictures of my flowering plants during the sunny days. I am very happy with my late winter/early spring border. This is an area in my garden in which I planted some cyclamen coum, galanthus and hellebores below a hibiscus bush. It´s lovely to see how the plants thrive under the bush. The cyclamen coum are self seeding. Not only next to the mother plants, but also in other areas in my garden I find the little seedlings. I am imagining how wonderful the area around this flowerbed will look in some years time. A sea of pink blooms of cyclamen coum in the borders and in the mossy grass. Wonderful, exactly what I have hoped for. I´d like to thank Carol from May Dreams Gardens for hosting Garden Bloggers´ Bloom Day. As always, I am excited to see the blooms that garden bloggers around the world will share today at
Have a lovely week!
Best wishes,




Iris reticulata

I am especially delighted by the colouration of this cyclamen coum plant. Unlike the other plants, the colour of its flower is a lighter pink with some darker pink stripes. Doesn´t it look unique?!

The cyclamen offspring I am so proud of.

Can you find the small seedlings next to the mother plant?

Even in the grass they self seeded. Imagine the grass brightened up by little bright pink flowers in some years time.

After tidying up- the gardening season can start.

Hellebores niger

Don´t these colours go well together?

Some primulas to cheer up my terrace.

Garden Bloggers´ Bloom Day - February 2018

Dear readers,
I wish you all a happy Garden Bloggers´ Bloom Day-February 2018! This has been a very creative month for me. I started transforming my second terrace wall and have been doing many terracotta pots, which I can´t wait to plant up soon. I also had fun doing some more wreaths from branches. Most importantly, I have also been enjoying many blooms in my garden and on my terraces this month. Although we also had some snow, the weather was mostly mild and spring doesn´t seem far anymore! I am especially happy with my hellebores and cyclamen coum. Theses plants seem to do so well in my garden. I´d like to thank Carol from for hosting Garden Blogger´s Bloom Day. Please visit her blog to see which plants bloom for other garden bloggers this month.
Have a lovely week!
Best wishes,

Cyclamen coum really seem to be happy in my garden. Only planted them about this time last year and they have already produced so many seedlings. I would´t have imagined that they would naturalise so soon.

This beautiful helleborus plant really surprised me. It had been totally covered by leaves until its pretty blooms popped up only two days ago. Didn´t even remember that I planted a helleborus in that spot.

My rosemary has bloomed throughout winter. As you can see, it is a pink blooming variety. I bought it while being on a garden vacation to England in June 2017. I am really glad I took it with me. Whenever I see it I am thinking of my garden vacation.

As you see in this picture, I started doing my second terrace wall. I am not very far yet, but hope to nevertheless finish it soon. 


Here you see some of the planters I did this month.  I really enjoy working with clay. I find it very relaxing and it helps passing cold winter days.
