Sublime Sunday - Spring´s Finally Here!

in sublimesunday •  3 months ago  (edited)

Hello Dear Steemians From Around The Globe, Happy Sunday!

This is my first contribution to Sublime Sunday hosted by @c0ff33a. I am happy to be here and share my fun in gardening. I love nature so I am going to share some images of that too. I am now back home after staying 137 winter days in Spain. It is a place we escape to during cold season and since my husband and I are both retirees, we have all the time in the world. First of all,

let´s have a look at what Sublime Sunday is all about according to our host :

Welcome to SublimeSunday a tag presenting you with the unique opportunity to post something a bit different, wacky, crazy or just whatever takes your fancy and instigated by me @c0ff33a

When we came back a couple of weeks ago, my small backyard was a mess, all those dried leaves as well as dirt were all over. The birds seemed to be playing around in the garden since I found that some of my tulip bulbs were scattered and dug-out from the ground. They were intact though and when I cleared the leaves below the pine hedges, I found a dozen more. Must have been that the birds did not like the taste of the tulip bulbs.

I thought these succulents below died-off because of the last harsh winter, but I was happy to see them coming out beautifully and so green.

The two strawberries from last year multiplied and newbies migrated to the larger container and I think there are more than a dozen of them now. It´s a variety that is very sweet. I am not sure whether I will transfer them as I need this huge container for a watermelon I am going to try-out this season. Let us wait and see....

The trees and bushes are now blooming, I guess it´s time to be careful with those particles flying around as I have an allergy and would easily have a runny nose if these particles get into my nostrils.

Lily, mom in-law´s chihuahua princess, has been with for four years now and she loves to go this pathway for her daily walk...she seem to be liking it here especially when she meets other dogs.

Thank you very much @mers for your first contribution to #SublimeSunday and what a fabulous post it is! I like very much the idea of spending Winter in Spain anything to escape the cold and wet!

This naughty birds digging up your bulbs, but at lest they were intact so you could replant them. Your garden looks great though, and packed full of goodies with the strawberry plants and soon to be melon. Do you grow any herbs alongside the succulents, my mum always had mint and thyme growing I just loved smelling them.

Wonderful post, full of great photographs and a story to go with them - I reallly enjoyed this thank you for sharing it.

Hello to you @c0ff33a ! Thank you so much for your lovely comments. Gladly, I would like to contribute more to the SublimeSunday challenge.... Yea, I grow herbs in my container garden. Since I have small backyard, I brought all my container plants each year on to the top terrace to prevent the slugs from munching my leafy vegetable, they love all those green lettuce . Atm, I have basil and rosemary and I will add more when the weather already permits. Am happy that you visited my post. Thank you once more...
