I haven't been online much the last week, spring has come to southern Sweden.
The canola fields are turning yellow and the patio is heating up,
and me and the kitties have been checking up on the garden.
My potted walnut and Robinia survived the winter, one lavender didn't.
I will replace it come autumn, but for now I am growing sunflowers in the spot.
These little darlings grow underneath the lilacs and make the wait for
the sweet smell filling the air a little less agonizing. May is the month of weeding,
it will be another month before the lilacs (and everything else) are in bloom.
I have a penchant for Mediterranean plants but most of them don't survive up here.
But when I came by bougainvillea in the supermarket yesterday I couldn't resist.
We have been thinking about adding a small 4-season room to the house this year.
I would fill it with bougainvillea, citruses, olive, fig, oleander...
My little boy was in a cat fight last week and was bitten right on the wrist :(
You may be able to spot the part of his paw the vet shaved and cleaned.
He looks a bit suspicious in this picture because I just forced his antibiotics
on him before I pulled out the camera. Otherwise he's doing fine again now.
How is your garden doing?
