Dear blog friends, thank you so much for your commenting in the last post. I' m back again and I' ve brought a very long garden walk to you. All has been prepared in high-polish, so the Spring will be brilliant.
Today I' d like to show you my Strelitzia regina. The plant has been blooming since February and I tell you that you can get a longer blossom when you receive a Strelitzia as a cut flower, but you must assist as a "midwife"! Normally there are 4 -5 groups of flowers blooming in succession. But this doesn' t work with cut flowers. Mostly you see one group of flowers (3 x orange and 1 x blue) and the rest is rotten in the spathe. So you can stretch the spathe and help the others to bloom when you pull them out. You can do it with all at once or in succession like in Nature.
We are walking clockwise from the terrace corner to the left quince-corner and then the Hemerocallis walk to the apple-corner. I saw a lot of little flower jewels which I want to show you up close so that you can see the whole beauty of them.
Am Steingarten gehen wir schnell vorbei, denn ich möchte ihn in den nächsten Tagen ausführlicher zeigen, er hat seinen ersten Blütenhöhepunkt erreicht.
At the rock garden we will stay a very short time because I' m going to show you its whole beauty in the near future; it' s just in full blossom at the moment.

Around the pond you can find several varieties of daffodils and primroses. A lot of the daffodils are broken in the middle of the stalk. I think it comes from the variation in temperature. Do you have this problem in your garden, too?

Die 'echte' Schlüsselblume duftet und ist an den orangen Innenflecken erkennbar.
The late Christmas Roses are now full in bloom. They are growing on the brook hill. From here is also the picture of the for April with the mirror. The great idea from SchneiderHein, has turned the mirror into a nomad!
Primroses, scillas and other Spring flowers are blooming in the maple-tree corner. The Iris border at the end of our walk is full of many Iris spathes..... but this will be another post in May.....
Of course, Spring cleaning has come to the world of the animals. In front of the insect hotel I took away a cloth which had kept the birds from taking the stalks away to build their nests. I worked very carefully in the pond because I saw some lovers in it.
