On the 15th of every month garden bloggers from all over the world show off their blooms in a post and link up with May Dreams Gardens.
So welcome to my garden in the central Algarve region of Portugal! It's in hardiness zone10a.
I've been having trouble keeping on top of everything.
|In the rose bed, the last of the blooms, some ground covers and weeds.|
Other activities and lack of "gardening weather" explain why I've posted a day late a few times.
There is another reason this month, though. It rained off and on for a few weeks and the grass kept growing until I figured I should call in the professionals, i.e. the gardener. I thought my little old lawnmower and I weren't up to the job. As it turned out I was wrong.
Yesterday the gardener didn't show, I became really upset thinking how the photos would look, decided to try doing the job myself (had a difficult night as a result of my allergic rhinitis), the lawnmower cooperated and the grass got cut! However, by the time I finished it was too late to take photos.
Along the side wall there are some red and yellow hibiscus blooms.
One lavender is in serious need of being cut back but this one is still going strong.
And some foliage is as good as having blooms, don't you think?.
Looking forward to seeing you again next month.
