around the garden - mid September

I never thought I'd be able to say that so soon : "around the garden" ... my garden !!! How excited I am, you just can't imagine !

It's not yet like I think I imagined it (or dreamed it, you get the idea), of course, since we've moved here only 2 weeks ago. There'll be lots of work in order to know what we want it to be, what we can actually grow (we're in quite a hot Mediterranean climate, though not in Africa !), and of course what we can actually afford ! (because there'll be some work to be done indoors as well , and money can't go everywhere at the same time !)

But in the meantime, I'm walking around my garden, discovering it, making new/tiny lil friends. Here are some snapshots that I wanted to share with you today. Until today it's been almost as hot as in the heart of summer (above 30°C every day, around 20°C at night), but I've heard rain is on the way, and autumn should be coming soon ... I hope so !!

palm trees give the garden quite a Miami feeling (that's pretty weird, actually !)
