❀ My Summer Garden ❀

IMG-20140611-WA0018

Waiting for cherries to grow is like waiting for a solar eclipse to come around. Especially in a town filled with pigeons that won’t let buds become fruits and eat them as soon as they come out. *sigh*

We had the tallest most spectacular cherry tree in our old house, I miss it so much. Our cherries were the main focus of summer after holidays abroad. Ahh childhood memories, I had the best childhood filled with fun and excitement.

These smell sooo good! I love the intense colour. When dried they still keep their scent, so it can be dried and kept  inside your room as a natural air freshener,

Stunning flower ...a shame my brother had to squash it with his swing.

Daisies are great for one thing and one thing only - daisy chains of course!!! They were a big hit on the school playground and I still find myself making them in my back yard.

Closed buds are just as beautiful to me as flowers in full bloom!

Although these don't live for long, when they're around they sure do make a big statement!

I think I have a fascination for plants that look like grass but are not really grass - weird it may seem - but I think they look so purrrty!

Flowers from potatoe plants - I wonder if they are edible?

And to all your disbelief, I will not edit these photos to make them smaller, I will leave them humongous so you can see the gory detail on every flower =/

Since taking these pictures many of these have died and many others have grown in their place. I love my garden as it contains a variety of seasonal flowers including many bulbed flowers that re appear every year! My next post will be a final update on my fruit trees before I get back from my well deserved holiday!

Spring/Summer Photography 2014

It’s that time of the year again, when your bulbs are re growing and your buds are blooming with so much colour all around it’s a shocker I haven’t been snapping pictures like crazy like I did last year. This year the daffodils have already come and gone *sigh* I’ve just been so sick and I’m recovering painfully slow, which has caused me to become overly lazy and miss out on so much excitement in my garden.

This year we haven’t been all that much into gardening, we’ll be going away to Italy and Bangladesh soon, so I thought I’d write this up before we disappear =)

I recently went to one of my uncles houses and was amazed to see so many different plants and shrubs and amazing greenery’s, I just couldn’t help myself, and snapped up a few pics hehe

I must admit though, I took these pics on my phone, but I think it turned out pretty good =D

Close up

Close up – Just look at the amazing intricate details

Super awesome yellowness, my friend Sheila would be proud of me for putting this one up 😉

2014-04-03 17.06.29

I love the red ones, the colour of poppies but I’m pretty sure they’re not poppies, hmm

2014-04-03 17.08.39

Yellow overload =D Eeek I love these!!!

2014-04-03 17.07.05

2014-04-03 17.06.44

such a spectacular shade of pink, it’s the pink version of the white flowers that grow on cherry trees before the buds come out methinks, what does thou think?

2014-04-03 17.07.43

Just thought I’d stick a green one in there, for no apparent reason of course…

Anyhoo enough of my uncles plants, I’ll show you what’s growing on my trees so far (nothing that amazing really – but we’re not too fussed as we will probably not be around to eat it all)

IMG-20140506-WA0013

I think this ones an apple tree, I can’t remember, we’ve moved a few around and brought new ones, it’s difficult to tell them apart at this stage. Well I think most fruit trees look the same, but I might just be the odd dumb one – urm.. sorry about that =/

Oh and excuse the bright orange fences, our fences came down last month with the harsh winds, as did a few of our neighbours, so now were stuck with a few bright orange fences which look hideous *face palm* and apparently no one stocks up on fences in Luton ugh!

IMG-20140506-WA0012

 

I absolutely love these itty bitty cherry tree, we had one that was planted in our old house, it was humongous and it bore many fruits each year. I have great memories with that tree, so much so, that as a child moving out of my first home I asked my dad if we could take the tree with us – but of course, we couldnt just lift a huge tree of the ground *sob* and there you have it, a forever tree friendship ends in misery ='( nothing will ever replace you Miss.Humongous Cherry tree, I shall forever remember you *sheds tears* ok enough drama, i’ll try to move on *sniff*

IMG-20140506-WA0010

Ok half these plants haven’t bloomed yet, but since I’ll probably be in Italy or Switzerland I thought I’ll upload them anyway!

IMG-20140506-WA0009

I love that the sun was out, this is the first day I went into my garden since FOREVER and I love that my dad let me take the pictures on his phone, because let’s be real, I have the worlds crappiest phone, (note to self – Must invest in a camera!!)

IMG-20140506-WA0008

Amazing

IMG-20140506-WA0007

more pretty flowers – near this plant are lots of blackberries yum, but I guess I forgot to take a pic – oops

IMG-20140506-WA0006

The back end of my garden, excuse the broken greenhouse – caused by the neighbours kids playing football in our garden – hehe

IMG-20140506-WA0002

IMG-20140506-WA0005

Hope you enjoyed all my pics, my next picture post should be on fruits if all goes according to plan. However there could be a slight delay what with all the holiday plans and Ramadan round the corner =)

Hope every ones having a happy sunny and joyous day,

TJ 😉
