The lake is melting but we have a bit of an iceberg on the pier. This little beauty has been just under the surface in temperatures which reached below -30 degrees and then just pops her head out today from the remaining snow
Brrrrrrrrr! That makes me feel chilly Dachalover - but it's good to see you
Cheers Dove.....we have been hibernating as well but as you can see from my wonderful wife we are preparing for a BLOOMING Summer .... when the Winter is so long you cherish the warmer periods , just like our plants
Now that makes me feel warmer - there's nothing like a blazing fire and a stack of firewood to make you feel snug and cosy.
What's going in the pots?
Mostly begonias of all varieties ....phlox and some other bits and bobs
We took a group of school pupils to Russia 20 years ago and saw the dachas outside Moscow set in beautiful woodlands..Many of them had fruit, veg and flowers in their gardens.
