or ... dreaming of Mimosas.
Back from an exciting trip to Wales!
|The Irish Sea|
The camellias were flowering as good as they could as the early season was so mild.
We tried to sell some stuff at the Maastricht fleamarket which turned out not as a big success but we had good weather and lots of fun.
The S-T-P dog (aka sticky-toffy-pudding) enjoyed the sun in the front garden

At home, the hanging gardens got EG's particular attention and one bed was added, wrested from the hard grass covered ground
|As you can see, EG is the king of the recyclers.|
|Those broad beans were fantastic and there were loads|
Everything looked so promising and happy but then we had late frost and as a result there are no pears, only few apples from the later varieties, no walnuts, no mirabelles (green gage), no plums, no quinces. Luckily the hanging gardens provided us with loads of fresh vegetables.

|No chance to move this japanese acer anymore :-(|
I shall make a picture of how it looks now. Actually a very good way to grow basil without greenhouse, keeping them in pots.
Later in May we travelled to Bristol, again, for a 'granddaughter fix' and visited a garden which took part of the NGS. But those pictures are for next time :-)
