Spring, spring... and almost over
After a very warm and dry spring we had finally a little bit of rain yesterday. It was surely not enough, but enough for some plants to recover a little bit.
We have a first rose blooming, as expected it's the "Stanwell Perpetual" grown as a standard, but I have not taken a picture so far. There are a lot of late tulips still in bloom, but also the first of my Iris barbata. Spring is slowly moving on, making space for summer to come. Early this year...
On Easter sunday we had a wonderful BBQ in our garden with my parents a friend of ours who happened to be alone those days. It was a wonderful evening, with nice temperatures and lots of laughter.
Our elder tree is full of lice, but there are also lots of different ladybugs who feed on them!
