With my disperate tentations to create me a job in internet I begin to leave spring this year too. Some days ago I told you that there is a profume of spring in air. We had rains all this winter, and all we think that summer will be cold. It's not bad for me, but... No, maybe it's very good for my flowers too. I want to be more attentive with them this year.
Our zone is as a frying pan. The sun is more hard here, and there is not so much earth. It's good from the point of view of landslades, but it's bad for plants. Summer is worse as winter here. Everything, me include, is fryed every year.
Some years ago I had a very beautiful flower-garden. I have different sorts of roses. Not simple roses but roses of the authors, creators of new roses. I had all types of flowers from first days of spring till winter. All my female-neighbours were died on the fences around my yard.
Now everything is neglected. Well, I don't promise you, but I'll try to stay not so much time near PC and do other tasks too, so I hope I'll have good flowers this year.
I was very surprized yesterday when I saw these crocuses in the grass. It is very warm place there. Here you see how they are without grass. In Nocera, under and among the hills, there are narcisses just flowering, they have more high temperature. I have them not. I have to wait. My roses flower later as in Nocera too.
I love crocuses. You know, there are wild crocuses here! We have seen them once on an other hill!
Do you know where you have to plant crocuses? In the yard, in the holes that has the coat. I don't have them this year, so I can't show you a photo, but the effect to see these flowers on the surface of the covered yard is incredible.
In the right side of the photo you can see a piece of metal net. It's for different under-earth animals. I can't have any bulbs and root crops. They eat all of them. Even simply parsley is unpossible to grow. I tryed to plant them in metal nets... I found different animals dead trying to enter inside the net from the bottom. But others entered from the upper side. And I don't tell you about the rats.
Do you know that the rats don't like lilies in their territory?
I had some of them. These villains dug them out and threw them far from that place. I planted them once more and found them thrown next morning.
Oh, a life of a gardener...
