One touch of nature makes the whole world kin...
This is all about well loved and tried spring flowers like these charming frilly Petunias.
My garden does not lend itself to grow annuals in garden beds, not to miss out on these lovely spring guests I plant them in pots and troughs.
Othello: III, iii
O earth, I will befriend thee more with rain...
I grow these daisies since many years. From time to time I make new cuttings as they are so easily propagated. They will flower into summer.
You are a colourful butterfly;
flying from flower to flower;
you are here and everywhere;
what makes you so absolutely sure?
That I am not the one over there..... Titania
So fresh, so white, harmonious...
Petunias darlings of spring;
A spring bouquet from Fabrizia;
Rust coloured flowers on the Casuarina tree.
Why, what is pomp, rule, reign, but earth and dust?
King Henry VI, part III: V, ii
Crassula type succulent, growing since many years in this basket, flowering luxuriously every spring.
In spring, when geraniums are at their best they give me this Mediterranean kick like a ripe juicy fig, or a fine golden olive oil;
The sweetly scented pensées, a memory of summers in Switzerland.
Pleasure and action make the hours seem short.”

At this time of year we get lots of eggs from our black Australorp hens.
The Australorp is a chicken breed of Australian origin. It is not a large bird, soft-feathered, with white toenails, black legs and beak, and a moderately large and upright single comb, with five distinct points.
They are very friendly, talkative hens, usually we keep between 8 to 10 hens.
Believe it or not:
You must listen to the whispers of the wind in the trees, these whispers are only for you!
