We almost didn’t get any rain at all during the last 3 months ... and this time of year, the need of rain is even more necessary because it fills the water stocks for the rest of the year ! So all the rain we finally got this past weekend was long long awaited !

Problem is that we also got hail, several times actually, and I really feared for all the plants in my garden, specially all the ones I bought these last weeks ! But after checking, they were shaken but not damaged, phew !!!

With no major travel this summer by lack of budget, I decided to fill the garden with more flowers after some doing research. We have a local plant nursery that has interesting prices.

A sort of spring daisy ( can’t remember the precise name) about to open !

I hope to cut branches from the eucalyptus from time to time, for us or for gifting my mom or mother in law, saving us money from the florist, useless waste (from the florist) and money as well !

I hope you are all doing well. Spring is such a busy time of year for everyone. Some of you must be on spring break. Ours will start in a couple of week. Wishing you all a wonderful start to the week !
