Garden preview...

Few photos of my garden...as you can see it's an ancient little garden in the old town of Lucca...you can see the apse of St. Maria Forisportam church in the background...

























A lot of work to do...my mother left most of it uncultivated for many years...the ground was covered by ivy and there were about 25cm of dried leaves and pine needles......I spent most of my free time in the last 2 weeks, tiding and hoeing the ground...I sowed the grass...

















...now I've to plant some flowers and herbs...to take care of the peonies, roses, camelias and all the other sisters...
















































I need some help...sunny and warm days...I hope in a good result! I'm not a very expert gardener...yet!
Have a sunny week end!

I love your garden. It's the kind of garden that I would have,, but at PERPIGNAN, the weather become too warm in summer, and it's beautiful only on may and june when flowers are in bloom, after it's dry . Also I decorate the garden with cactees in jars.
Have pleasure for this week-end in your garden. Bises de Cosette
