Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day: November, 2013

This is the end. Golden autumn turned into gloomy black and white mode. It is dark in the morning; it’s dark when I come back home after the work. There were lots of rain and my lawn is wet and soggy. I even had to postpone my casual autumn cleaning because I can hardly enter…

Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day: October, 2013

One more month has passed away. We are quickly approaching a cold season. During the last week the end of beautiful golden autumn has become more and more evident. Golden leaves started to fall and turn brown, and just in few days colourful and spruce trees uncovered their bare branches.  My garden is slowly turning…

Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day: September, 2013

This is my twelfth GBBD post and a first birthday of my blog– a small anniversary. The past year was a time of learning: learning about plants, compositions, care, maintenance, and even about photography. Thanks to the GBBD community, all the gardeners who invite to visit their gardens and share their experience– you folks are…

Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day: July, 2013

Another wonderful month has passed away. Although Lithuanians usually complain about weather a lot, I can’t find any reasons to be unhappy about this summer. Till this day it was one of the nicest summers I could ever remember. There were a lot of sunny days and lots of opportunities for summer dresses to wear….

Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day: June, 2013

It was a wonderful month with lots of sun and rain. After a delayed spring everything is rushing to bloom, sometimes even compromising habitual blooming order. I can’t remember I’ve ever seen lilacs and forsythias blooming together before. However this is what has happened this spring – what a crazy combination of colours. The weather…

Portretai: Rožė ‘Martin Frobisher’

Ne taip jau dažnai nutinka, kad augalas, kurį nusipirkai tik pažiūrėjęs jo nuotrauką kataloge, atrodytų geriau nei tikėjaisi. Pernai mane taip nustebino pora rožių. Apie vieną iš jų ypač norisi parašyti. Nesu didelė rožių mylėtoja – man jos gražios tiek pat, kiek ir visi kiti augalai. Rožių augintojų pasaulyje tai jau nemaža nuodėmė. Esu visiškai…

Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day: December 2012

December started with a perfect winter this year. Days are white and wrapped with snow. Cold is mild, just about -5 to -10oC.  This morning I saw the first fisherman on the lake ice. For me those ice-fishers are an attribute of serious winter. Seasons changed but it’s a wonderful weather for the Christmas mood….

Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day: November 2012

I’ve never taken pictures of my garden in November before. And I was pretty sure I won’t have a lot to show for this bloom day, maybe just some of common heathers. You can never know what to expect from November in Lithuania. Sometimes it’s pretty mild and rainy, sometimes with piles of snow. We’ve…

Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day: October

The autumn gallops over my garden. The temperature is falling down and it hardly reaches 10oC during day time. Colors are fading. It’s raining every day and it’s really windy. The wind just tears the leaves out of the trees and crumples blossoms of the late bloomers. I hardly find moments to get out and…

Rugsėjo tekstūros

Scottweberpdx iš Rhone street garden prieš kelias dienas savo bloge surašė 10 priežasčių, kodėl jam patinka ruduo. Turbūt ir man patiktų, jei tie 10 argumentų tiktų rugsėjo pabaigai Lietuvoje  Saulės ir žiedų pripildytos nuotraukos skatina tik pavydžiai padūsauti. Jau kelios naktys vėjas kaukia taip, kad niekam nekiltų idėjų miegoti atviru langu. Ne, aš nesiskundžiu oru, tiesiog ruduo…
