The garden was my last thought in summer and autumn because summer is too hot to go out, and these months I was dedicated to my travel agency project as you know. So, as usually everything is neglected. Even if I had a disappointment at not getting the right flowers this year.
You will maybe remember that I spent much in spring for surfinias, fuchsias and other species of flowers that are not appropriate for this climate. Unfortunatelly, they can't stand too much hot. And do not remain for the next year as their wild relatives that I had before.
I was sure I will leaarn to never buy plants more, but I could not resist without buying some tulips and cactuses when I've seen them in the market.
Do you love tulips so as I love them? My biggest dream is to go in Holland in spring to see all those incredible beauties. You can't see them here in the streets so as they are planted everywhere in Swiss, for example. Maybe you will remember my posts about my visit of Lugano this year where there were many photos of flowers there.
Well, tulips I will show you in spring -I planted them in the vases this time. The photos I post today show you cactuses I have in vases now (I have some of them in soil too -cactuses like to grow in soil but I do not like them to clean from the weeds so I turned most of them in the vases this year.If you know the names of them, write me pls so that I can read about them.
This one I had once many years ago, it had a leopard skin flower that had very bad fish smell. Here you see the flower is dark red. I read their flowers have that smell dipending from the place of origins. Fish smell they have when they come from the deserts near ocean. Well, I'm not sure. I read about it when I had that first cactus.
