As the weather is sunny and warm, no rainy like it has been last weeks, chilies are again outdoors.








More shadow at this side of the garden.




A plenty of different shades of green.






Golden balls are flowering soon. Normally they grow like a huge bush but at this year they seem to stay smaller. Maybe the frost at the last winter damaged them too.




Few flowers in the middle of green:

Saliha, your garden is a gorgeous wonderland!

I particularly love the deep pink corn poppy and the light peach-colored spikey dahlia!

You do such a great job!

Thanks for continuing to share your photos with us!

Thanks. It is like a small oasis where I can relax after a day's work. The best times are still coming - like the sunflowers. There are already few tiny buds of them. These pics are from today:

Broad beans are flowering:




Rhubarb:




Runner beans:




They like climbing. Seems that I donīt use that clothes line for a while...




Tomatoes in their green world:




Orange marigold:

Morning glory has opened many of its flowers today:






Bees love anise hyssop - there are several of them from the early morning to the late evening, and some seem to spend their nights there too. Itīs like sleeping at the dining table.

Saliha, you probably already know this, but if you click on Search at the top, then Advanced search, type in your key word(s) - in this case, "zucchini" - then click "Search Titles Only", you will get tons of results from this forum.

So many great ideas!

Thanks about advice (yes, I might knew it already but thanks for reminding me). I have already made zucchini lasagna and today I made filled zucchinis (one half filled with browned groud beef, tomato sauce, olives, tomatoes, basil and grated cheese, the other half with tuna in curry sauce, boiled potato, tomatoes, sage and grated cheese). My workmate promised to write to me also a recipe for zucchini cookies. I need to try it next then.

Saliha - I've certainly enjoyed all the pix of your garden - you have done a wonderful job!

what is absolute amazing is - following your garden and my garden over time.....
yours is way far ahead of mine - and I'm a a latitude with Sicily!

spent time in Sweden - so I'm familiar with the 'it's 2200 and still light' thing - I guess the longer daylight hours really pump up the plants.

As usual, your garden photos are wonderful, Saliha!

I was particularly struck by the photo of your lovely Morning Glory!

I am not a religious person, but I think of myself as a "spiritual person". There is something about Morning Glories that makes one think the light of ..... something .... ... some power .... is shining through to you!
