The sun is rising early enough, so that I get to drive to work with the first glimpse of light on the horizent. Since I'm eastward driving, I get to enjoy and follow every day as the days are getting longer and longer.

Wild bee on a lavendula blossom - Discorsi on gardening
While I wander around the garden, I enjoy not only the looks (while I don't really smell - I assume thanks to the chemistry studies at university and therefore don't care as much about for example roses) I enjoy the sounds. From the leaves in the wind to the insects. Starting in March, when the sound of frozen weeds in the wind changes to the humming of wildbees all around the willows. And now, in May the mellows, in June the Lavendula attracts more and more. Gardening and photography hand in...

Narzissen Narcissus in the garden
Due to the relatively wet and heavy turf and my philosophy of not fortifying to much only in order to get a plant into the garden rather than choosing suitable ones for the conditions available it seems hard sometimes to get for example spring blossoms. Bulbs are ideally for “lazy”, lets say time efficient, gardening, but sadly the idea of tulips everywhere did not work well, but narcissi did – once planted – every day new anticipation when the tips of the leaves are to be seen in early...

Discorsi on Garden - Vorfreude auf den Frühling - Hyathinte
“A feeling of excitement about something positive that is going to happen in the near future” – a bit like anticipation but not quit the same.

With a few sunny days everything will be green and full of colorful blossoms. The willow catkins and crocus are the first food source for the bees, nature is on the grid, engine howling and in a...

One day in the garden and not I can eat, for the invitation this afternoon, I can bring the gifts the garden made me (with some work put in of cause) and most my friends (without a garden) in the city enjoy it more than some sweets from the shop. I'm happy, what I can't eat myself, will be enjoyed y them.

Gardening at CarPassionAndMore - wild bees Lavendula
After Lunch on saturday, I read an article about a young woman, photographing and counting the various types of wild bees in a park of a midsized city. So i got curious what I will find in the garden, but as I want to make my other projects to come to an end and not starting a new one, I set the timer on my mobile phone to 10 (min) and took my camera. This lunchbreak was quite successful, but I have to admit, I didn't find/saw much at first, walking to the pond was disappinting, but at a...

We all know and enjoy the effect allium adds to the garden. The natural repellent mechanism makes roses and alliums a gardens best friends. Alliums are beautiful in the landscape. The long-blooming flowers range from large to enormous purple ball-like blooms making a striking presence in the landscape. The flower heads also dry nicely creating multiple-season interest But there are details, where only a photos can show you the beauty, you won't see with your eyes.

Palmkätzchen mit Bienen, Bienenweiden im Garten, bees in the garden
One of the first major food sources for bees are often cut and put inside during Easter time to dekorate for example eggs on it. By leaving at least most of them on, you have not only less work, a few colourful spots more in your garden and with more bees, you will get more fruits in autumn.

"Barbarazweige" (Barbara-branches) are branches of fruit trees, which according to an old custom are cut on 4 December, the liturgical memorial day of St. Barbara in the Roman Catholic and Greek Orthodox Church.

They should bloom until Christmas Eve and decorate the apartment for Christmas. The warm indoor environment...
