Mein Sonntag Strauss



My first Daffodils


and many Hellebore in my garden.




By the time I get back from Italy my field of Daffodils may not be blooming anymore.

I will have missed the entire show.

I don't know if that is an acceptable trade-off.


Have a great week dear Friends.

  1. Thanks to you, dear Gina, I now have Hellebore, that came all the way from Utah, in my garden. I bet in winter they will let me know how they like it here. I just hope they will not get homesick.......
    Happy Sunday greetings, Sieglinde

    1. Dear Sieglinde, I see that you have already planted your Hellebore. It will be very interesting to see if your soil will change their colors. There is no doubt in my mind that you will be very successful in growing this pretty flower in your garden.

  2. Gina, thanks for your orchid watering advice. My gifted orchid plant is in beautiful ceramic pot, with no drainage, so I'll keep to the 1/2 cup of weekly water. I do wish that I had a bit more control over this apartment's atmospheric conditions. Yesterday was glorious, and today's much cooler, with gale winds a' blowing. Radiators play catch up.

    I am guessing that your daffs will forgive you this Italian holiday. Coincidentally, after finishing a novel set in Glasgow, I'm now reading one of Donna Leon's detective tales set in Venice. She really does convey a lot of Venetian atmosphere. I am always hungry!

    Have a grand trip. xo

    1. Dear Frances, The only thing that could hurt your orchid is if they are too close to a hot radiator. Because your orchid had new buds that opened on their own it tells me that your orchid will bloom for at least another 3 months.

    2. Thank you, Gina. I've got the orchid on a table that's not too, too close to the radiator. As our spring weather keeps veering from freezing to summertime heat, the radiator's heat also varies...it's centrally controlled, without my input. At a certain point of the afternoon, it gets splendid sun and looks very lovely. To have this flower's charm last for months would be grand. xo

    1. Dear Rosemary, less than a week and we are off. Judging from how late everything is in my garden I may have a few blooms left. Judging from past trips to Italy in April, we will see plenty of flowers and especially many, many fruit trees in blossom.

  5. Beautiful photos as always, Gina! You should buy yourself a drone and have it fly over your property while you are gone and have it take lots of photos for you. Wouldn't that be fun!?!!

    1. Thank you Janet. And thank you for your visit. You have a brilliant idea. How much does a drone cost?
      Only kidding.
