It's the last day of June

It's almost weekend and splendid warm and sunny weather! This afternoon our national football/soccer team is playing the world cup quarter final against Argentina and the whole country is all excited! Tomorrow night I'm going to a classic open air concert with picnic, candle light and wine in our beautiful Knoops parc and I'm really looking forward to this event every summer. I'm wishing you all a sunny and happy weekend!

Before the rain

I took all these photos before the storm and very heavy rain we've had last night. This morning I found a lot of my flowers lying wet and heavy on the grass and slugs sliming over them *argh*! Of course I tried my best to bring them back in shape (with the help of stakes and clips) and collecting off the slugs before heading off to work.

Beautiful evening light

I love taking photos in the soft evening light, like these that I took yesterday evening, can you see how shiny the light makes the pictures?

This is how the Clematis Multiblue looks after it has lost all the petals, I find it is still very pretty:

I had to add my three Allium Globemasters again lol because I think they look like a snowman from this angle, can you see what I mean?

A different view

in my garden, I dont think I have posted pictures of it yet. This is when you come from my dear neighbour Ulla's garden and enter mine through our middle path. The tree with ivy growing at it's feet is exactly on the middle line of our gardens.

and this is what you see when you go through the path and look around in direction of my house

These blue bells are growing nicely at my willow fence at the moment

and last but not least the three glorious Globemasters again lol

It's all about roses

in my garden and in my house at this time of the yearThis beauty is named "Rokoko" rose and it has the delightful scent of wild roses, I wish I could make you smell it!

Well I couldn't help other than pick some roses for inside as well they match my rose dishes, cushions etc..

And this one is called "Rosarium Glücksburg":

Marion you've asked me about the name for the rose in the next photo which I had posted another picture of in my last post too. I've bought it as "Cottage Rose", but when I google Cottage Rose photos they do look a bit different so I'm not that sure anymore that this is a real Cottage Rose. At first it looks more purple and when it fades it's going over in a light pink like in this photo here:

The biennial foxgloves are looking fab with my roses at the moment:

The first roses

of this season are finally blooming in my garden! From now on I'll have new roses flowering every day yay! :D

The Fairy with white Delphinium and Geranium x magnificum

My Clematis "Multiblue" does not only look good with Alliums, but also with the blue Delphinium.

And this is another Allium which has just started to bloom Allium "Christophii "

and these 3 really big balls of Allium "Globemaster" are also in full bloom now, as you can see they are even bigger then my blue glass balls!
