Thursday Thoughts – A walk in my garden

Time for a short walk in my garden – things are really happening every day now that real summer has arrived.

If you have got some spare minutes…welcome for a short glimpse into my world.

In the evenings, the heliotrope sends its dreamy scent where I sit in my chair outside the glass house, sipping a glass of red. Or enjoying a mug of coffee. Life is good.

But let’s go for a tiny tour, looking for some of my favourites.

Then we will have to peep into the glass house of course. Last September it finally arrived – after many years of longing to have one of my own. In the end, it was Corona that made it happen. Staying at home for such a long time, I would not miss adventures that were not to be.

My view from the chair – sitting on Totti’s favourite blanket – gives me harmony and satisfaction every day.

Now, as the soft evening fills with clear blackbird tunes, we can sit together and feel – that for the moment, Life is good.

I hope you found some joy in coming with me, even if it was only a short walk. I much appreciated your company.

  2. Your garden walk is so vibrant, Leya. The orange flowers – so gorgeous. I would love to relax and spend time in your garden. It’s so peaceful.

  3. Thank you for sharing your beautiful garden with us 😀 You have so many gorgeous flowers. I love all the purples (my favourite colour) but in the end it’s the poppies that steal the show!

  4. What a marvellous set of images, Ann Christine- and at last I have seen your glasshouse! Wonderful! And as Brian says, you have given us a great Scroll Stroll. I envy your view from the chair

  5. Thanks, dear Ann-Christine, for taking us on a tour through your beautiful garden.
    May we ask you a question, please?
    Plants we grow from seeds in our conservatory before getting them out often get problems because their stems are too weak. Do you know this problem too? What’s the solution? Maybe a fan?
    Wishing you a great weekend

    • Thank you for walking with me! I know the problem too – and, to my experience it mostly depends on too early sowing and to weak a light. Extra light via lamps or a later sowing might help. I am no expert though, only my own experience. I would love to know if it would work. A fan – well, air circulation is good for them too.

  6. Beautiful garden and beautiful photos. My garden, a lot smaller than yours, has been a life line for some years now. It’s so satisfying to see things growing, changing with the seasons, keeping creativity going when there’s not that much else to do.

  7. Your garden and greenhouse are lovely, Ann-Christine. I love the feed frame. You have a bottlebrush! That makes me feel at home.
    It is so green there. Summer looks like it is going to be warm. Is it steamy?
    I have no passion for photography but I still have a great fondness for my blogging community so I keep going.

    • I agree with you on the fondness…but I am tired. And as you say – it is warm here, very warm. I am so very happy to have two Bottlebrushes! The first one I saw ever was in the Anapurna massif in Nepal, 1986. My heart was shaken, I fell so hard for this plant, and brought home a seedling. Unfortunately we traveled extensively those years, and my poor mother could not save the plant. Since then I have bought a plant a couple of summers, but they never survived our winters. Then NZ meant even more love for Bottlebrushes…so, I hope to make these survive winter now that I can give them what they need. Sending you lots of hugs – as i have got my vaccine.

  8. A wonderful scroll stroll Ann-Christine. Of course I love the variety of flowers and a Bottlebrush!! splendid. The pots are so good as well. I am looking for some pots that are different but around here most have the same boring ones.
    I shall always be on my blog if you need to drop in sometime ❤

  9. My heart hurts with the beauty you share here, A-C. I’m just imaging how wonderful it is to see this every day, although I know it will change. Congratulations on your glass house. Now you just have to remember not to throw the first stone. 🙂

  10. Delightful Leya. I am sort of semiretired from blogging, but still pop in now and again when I see beautiful photos like these. So many of the bloggers I used to follow seem to have disappeared lately

  11. Thank you for the visit to your lovely garden. I have glasshouse envy too! And yours is a pretty one. I see you have a bottlebrush in a pot and a passion fruit! I do hope that you won’t stop blogging, I would miss all your wonderful posts and photographs.

    • I am happy to have you – even if my garden is never going to match yours… I will see what summer says…then I will reconsider again. Life is short. I would miss you too, and I have met so many lovely people through this WP game…

  12. What a lovely stroll we’ve had through your garden and your glass-house has left me very envious. I wish you much happiness there in the coming years Ann-Christine, and I’m sure you will grow some magnificent plants.

  13. You have the ability to make the simplest things spellbinding, Ann-Christine 🙂 🙂 I would hate to miss treats like this if I left the blog completely. Thank you so much! Have a good summer….

    • I did not realize you might leave blogging, Jo! You wouldn’t, would you? I’d hate you to leave! I have been thinking of leaving too. Vivi calls it Mojo…and I think I have lost it.

      • I thought if I stopped for a while I would really miss it, hon, but if I’m truthful there are more things that irritate than fill me with joy. I’ve met some of the loveliest people, but I could say that about real life here too. I do love to write my little stories but I’ve never been a real photographer and I often think my time could be better spent. Who knows how much of it we have left? I lost a very good friend a couple of weeks ago. Younger than me. But I would really miss you, and a good few others. So…who knows? Let’s just enjoy summer. 🙂 🙂

      • I can relate to much of what you say, Jo. And I have lost some precious friends the last year too. But I agree – let’s just enjoy summer, and then we’ll see.

Halva verket är läsarens - så, vad säger Du? As the second half is the reader's - I'd love to have Your line!
