- go away,
- enjoy gardening.
However, going away even for only three days is not compatible with gardening here, especially during summer. The plants need their watering, and I don't want to ask a neighbor to spend one hour watering for me. So last month, a gardener came and installed an automatic dripping system. This has been very effective, it has been raining regularly since the very first day :-).
I don't complain about that, the garden has not been so green for so long for several years. It is just weird to be back to a rainy spring after several years of drought. Not only weird, but a blessing too. However, I know that once the rain goes away, the garden will be burnt by the sun in a couple of days, whatever I do. So for the moment, I enjoy it, even the weeds...
Below are two nice surprises of the weeks, a lilly, and a peony I have transplanted last year. It has only one flower, but a beautiful one. The weeds behind are euphorbia, I like them too much to get rid of them.
