Oops, who’s that? I’ve been meaning to tell you for a while that we’ve employed a new gardener…she’s still a bit young but very passionate 😉

Ups, wer ist das denn? Tja, ich wollte euch schon eine Weile berichten, dass wir eine neue Gärtnerin angestellt haben…sie ist noch jung, aber äusserst passioniert 😉

Our old gardener was getting a bit fed up doing all the work on her own, so now they work in a team if they don’t snooze in the sun that is… 😀

Unsere alte Gärtnerin hatte es satt, die ganze Arbeit allein zu machen. Nun arbeiten sie im Team, d.h. wenn sie nicht gerade in der Sonne dösen… 😀

Nahia has also helped me to do today’s vase…two vases actually…and because it’s high summer, we felt the ideal place for them would be by the pool!

Nahia hat mir auch geholfen, die Vase für heute zu gestalten…zwei Vasen übrigens, und weil es Hochsommer ist, fanden wir, sie müssen einfach am Pool stehen!

Here’s no. 1 – Rudbeckia triloba, Pennisetum alopecuroides ‚Moudry‘ and Miscanthus sinensis ‚Blütenwunder‘

and no. 2 – Dahlia ‚Jowey Mirella‘ still going strong / und Vase Nr. 2: Dahlia ‚Jowey Mirella‘

I’m very pleased with the way the planting in the pool garden has turned out by the way: Trachycarpus, Phlomis and Panicum looking fab.

Ich bin übrigens sehr zufrieden mit der Bepflanzung im Pool-Garten: Trachycarpus, Phlomis und Panicum sehen wunderbar aus.

Miscanthus sinensis ‚Blütenwunder‘, Panicum virgatum & Persicaria amplexicaulis ‚Rosea‘

Miscanthus sinensis ‚Morning Light‘, Verbena rigida, seedheads of Allium christophii & Othonna cheirifolia

Don’t forget to pop over to Cathy who’s hosting the IAVOAM for more inspiration.

Wishing you sweet summer days! Wünsche euch frohe Sommertage!



…and that’s why today’s vase has to be enjoyed „under cover“ on the balcony of „Treetops“. We’re having thunderstorms today and it has cooled down a lot giving the garden and myself a bit of a break. Everything’s looking refreshed and green. I’m so pleased as my former garden design tutor came over from the UK to see my garden the other day and I had been worrying about the state of the place after the heat and drought in June. There was no need to worry though as she was delighted about the garden and thrilled by the snakes which could be seen basking in the sun. She’s Australian by the way, this might explain her relaxed attitude ;). My vase features the first Dahlia of the season: Jowey Mirella, a most faithful friend which has been coming up for several years even surviving colder spells down to -7°C. I’ve also added some Spirea and Indigofera amblyantha. Thanks to dear Cathy for hosting the vase on a Monday…I wish I could join in more often as it’s such an inspirational meme. Wishing you all a good week and don’t forget to check out the vases of my fellow bloggers over at Cathy’s Rambling in the garden. 🙂  PS: The owl chateau is still available by the way, just in case you know an owl looking for a secluded, spacious home with gorgeous views!
