Our garden in April I

May I invite you to come to our garden? We have sunny weather, a pleasing temperature of 12 degrees C. All our rare flowers are coming up and show their first tender beauty of spring. On my photos you can see the following flowers: filled buttercup, tormentil, alpine barrenwort, wild and normal tulips, helebores, dew drops, primulas, pansies, dog tooth violets, grape hyacinths, camelia, etc. etc.

I found a wonderful poem by my favorite poet Rainer Maria Rilke who can describe everything much better than me:

Harshness vanished. A sudden softness
has replaced the meadows’ wintry grey.
Little rivulets of water changed
their singing accents.

Tendernesses, hesitantly, reach toward the earth
from space, and country lanes are showing
these unexpected subtle risings
that find expression in the empty trees.

    • We must be happy with 12 degrees here in the North, unfortunately it is still quite cold and will even snow on Sunday. I prefer 27 degrees water temperature and 32 outside ๐Ÿ™‚ Kind regards Mitza

    • Thank you so much, Thomas. Even though it is small (300 sqm) we have a huge variety of rare plants and I go down there quite often every day in order to forget all earthly troubles. I will see if I can paint something. I still have so much on my to do list. Have a nice day, regards to Tweetie, Mitza

    • Unser kleiner Garten ist eine schรถne Sammlung von seltenen Pflanzen, Peter.
      Und Rilke ist sowieso mein Lieblingsdichter, aber sehr schwer zu รผbersetzen. Schรถnen Sonntag noch, GruรŸ aus dem kalten Hamburg, Mitza

  3. Gorgeous photos Mitza! You are lucky to have such lovely plants in your garden. Here we have daffodils everywhere – along the hedgerows, in fields and formal arrangements in gardens – I absolutely adore daffodils! They are such happy flowers. It’s also supposed to be bluebell season, so I’m hoping to find a wood near us with lots on display and then i’ll take some photos. Our tulips in the garden are flowering too – but we have cold weather at the moment, with an icy wind.

    • Thank you so much for your comment, Luke. I love daffodils a lot, as well as bluebells and when they are like carpets, it’s like a dream. We have such a cold weather with icy winds, too, and it’s raining a lot. I hope for some sun soon. Have a nice day, regards Mitza
