The garden last week
Sometimes you have to make sad decisions. 21 years ago we've planted
2 crabapple tree's. At that moment they are sweet and tiny. But in all this
years they were growing out to be to big for a little garden like mine. The
weight that the crabapple's are bringing is huge. My neighbours have to
walk under it at the back and at the front people also are walking under
it. During the storms earlier this year a lot of branches brought danger.
Broken by the storms. Time to say goodby to the tree's. Planting them is
easy bud to get it out is a different story. My husband had a lot of work
to get the first tree out yesterday. The other will go in autumn. I also
decided that the rose Madame Plantier has to leave the garden. I wish
I knew some one who could have it. How wonderful it will grow in a
garden where it has the space to show it's beauty. Because it's a wild
and huge grower.
But also great things are happening never seen this butterfly before
it's a beauty
While other roses already had the first beautiful flush, rose Sebastian Kneipp

Last thursday my 5 new beauty's were delivered. I've ordered it online
by Kordes itself in Germany. Wonderful quality they deliver.
Queen of Hearts. I love to follow the first flower opening up.
The color of the flowers will be better at the moment that
the rose get used to the garden soil.
I will show the other 3 new Kordesroses when the flowers are opened.

I want you to know how pleased I am reading your comments. I hope you will
excuses me that I did not reply on your comments. After a long very dry
periode we've got rain. But when the rain comes the amount is huge and very strong.
So a lot of deadheading to do at that time. I throw the old flowers on the soil
with the rose. Give it a blanked with her own petals. It keeps the moist into
the soil. What do you do with the old flowers? I love to know.
Have a wonderful new week ahead.
