Sunny and windless afternoons, magnificent colors – flowers and flowering trees. There is a lot to look at in the gardens and in the parks already!
When nature makes our winter garden decorations more spectacular!

Do you like sunshine and being protected from the wind? Dahlia, this colorful spiky perennial, this beloved elegant garden flower that is native to Mexico, definitely does.
In Pozba, our small village in the South-West region of Slovakia, summer for me mostly means relaxing, but there is also working around our house and garden, visiting family and friends, and eating lots of delicious local foods.

The hanging clusters and the light sweet fragrance of wisteria amaze me during its flowering season. We are lucky to have this woody climbing vine (Wisteria sinensis) over the arch of the entry to our courtyard. Here are a few shots to give you a taste of its beauty.
Earlier, I mentioned here on the blog, that the tulip doesn’t occupy a very prominent place among my favorite flowers. However, from time to time I can hardly get enough of their beauty. I am astonished at their diversity, both in color and form. There are close to one hundred species and thousands of breeds of tulips.
