Some more spring garden pictures!

Dear readers,
I hope you had some sunny days enjoying gardening! After some lovely warm spring weeks in Vienna, we were surprised by a cold snap last week. When I got up on Wednesday morning and looked out my window, I was quite shocked to see that it was snowing heavily. Today we had sunshine again and I used the good weather to take some more pictures of my spring garden. The tulips are in full bloom now and luckily they were´t damaged by the bad weather.
                                                                      Hope you enjoy!

I hope my allium buds will open soon. I would love seeing them bloom next to the tulips.

Garden Bloggers´ Bloom Day April 2017

                                                                 Dear readers,
Having written a short post yesterday, I didn´t intend to blog today. However, while looking at other people´s blogs (Christina´s organicgardendreams) I came upon Garden Bloggers´ Bloom Day hosted by Carol from May Dreams Gardens. Liking the idea a lot, I decided to participate. I´d like to share some pictures of my new garden, which as some of you might already know, I took over from my parents.  Hope you enjoy!

I created these two borders in the middle of the garden last September. Before, it was all lawn there. At the end of the borders I positioned a bank, which at the same time is a rose arch. When I started the borders last year, my parents told me that the borders looked like graves. However, I personally really like the borders and I am sure that as soon as the plants have established and grown to a certain hight, the borders will look great. I already imagine myself walking through the two borders and also enjoying the plants while sitting on the bank. I planted many old roses in the borders and also some peonies, alliums, lavender and other plants and can´t wait for them to bloom. I am really excited about how the borders will look some years from now.


Usually I am not very fond of yellow plants, but I think this lime yellow blooms of Euphorbia characias look wonderful in combination with purple and dark red tulips.
