{Lush Green Garden}

So far this summer we have had lots of late afternoon rain with often thunder. Needless to say that we do have quite a LUSH, GREEN GARDEN...
It looks almost tropical and the weeds are of course growing fast too...
The gazebo is being dwarfed by such huge trees!
Our Windmill and Canary Island palms look happy too...
The Quercus Virginiana Grand View Gold (r) is now less golden as in the spring.

    1. Dearest Michiko,
      This year it is really green because we got rain almost every single day of summer. Mainly late afternoon a thunder storm would pass over with lots of rain.
      Not ongoing rain like you mention... that is kind of dreary in the winter.
      Sending you hugs and love,
      Mariette

  4. Oh dear Mariette your garden looks more like a lovely park! I love all that pretty shaved grass, so neat and pretty, you feel like rolling on it! I love your gazebo image amidst the 'park.'
    Thanks for the visit honey. Yes, they're nice at the European shop, they bring fabulous things and the furniture is to die for and they know how I love antiques and vintage. They really sell everything from people that come from all over the country, even though the big cities have many more antique shops!

      Thank you and yes, it is more like a park, we can walk on our walk ways, through the woodgarden, adjacent to this patch of green grass. It looks at its prettiest I guess, can't recall any summer like this one!
      You do have exquisite pieces of furniture and other objects and in such prestine condition too. You will cherish it and later your daughters will.
      Hugs,

  9. Lieve Mariette,

    Ja,zo af en toe een regenbui doet de tuin en alles wat daar in staat goed.
    Ziet lekker fris uit met die groen/gele bomen.
    Hier de komende dagen ook tropisch warm met wel 36 graden en hoge luchtvochtigheid.
    Beetje rustig aan doen, in huis blijven waar het koel blijft met ramen en deuren gesloten.
    Van mij mag het wel wat minder warm.

    Bedankt nog voor de felicitatie,volgens mij heb jij alle bijzondere dagen genoteerd staan.
    Ik ben al blij dat ik het in m'n eigen kringetje kan onthouden;-)
    Maar het tuinfeest bij kleinzoon was geslaagd en morgen gaan we er weer heen om wat te vieren met kinderen en kleinkinderen.
    Mochten de voorspelde onweersbuien boven hun durpke hangen gaan we lekker onder het gezellige afdak zitten tijdens teppanyaki.

    Genieten van elke dag,want het kan plotseling een heel andere wending krijgen....
    ben in gedachten bij de nabestaande van vliegtuigdrama.

    Fijn weekeind gewenst en lieve groet,
    Ger

    1. Lieve Ger,
      Ja, het lijkt nu al de hele morgen dreigend en de lucht ziet er hoogzwanger uit! Luchtvochtigheid 100% dus niet zó lekker. Dan is het fijn als je airconditioning hebt die het vocht uit de lucht haalt binnen in huis.
      Fijn dat jullie het knus hadden en ook vandaag wel weer voor het huwelijksjubileum. We hebben zoveel om dankbaar voor te zijn en om te vieren. Inderdaad; morgen kan alles heel anders zijn! Je weet maar nooit en er zijn nu zoveel mensen in verschillende landen die treuren. En op de manier hoe; uit de lucht geschoten te worden en route naar een vakantie of thuisbestemming is bizar en dat voor 193 slachtoffers uit alle windstreken, waarvan 15 bemanningsleden.
      Geniet van een mooi weekend met familie en liefs uit Georgia/USA,
      Mariette

  13. Your garden is really beautiful, Mariette♡♡♡ From the picture, people may think it as a park with rich greenery. We were busy weeding both our tiny garden and parent's(^^;)

      Thank you, yes if you compare to Japanese or Dutch sizing of gardens, it definitely looks like a park!
      No matter how large or small a garden is; weeding is a tedious job!

  14. Your garden truly is lush and green, Mariette. We've had a lot of rain down here, too, but I'm not complaining. I find it very comforting, even if that means we have to mow more often! xo

    1. Dearest Stacy,
      Oh but mowing more often is by far not as hard working than dragging around with the water hose in an attempt to keep things alive...
      We enjoy it too!

  15. Dear Mariette,

    Your garden looks so lush and green and you don't mind the rain, if it makes your garden look like this.
    Love the big trees around the gazebo.
    Happy weekend

      Diesen Sommer ist bei lange nah nicht so heiss wie sonst weil es oft bewölkt ist mit Regen am späten Nachmittag oder Abend. Danach ist es immer herrlich abgekühlt!

  19. Dearest Mariette...Your garden looks perfect. We too, have been having a lush summer. It's so nice not having to worry quite so much about forest fires or wells running dry. Currently Proge is waiting for stuff to dry enough so he can mow!
    Enjoy the week ahead......*s*

  20. Dear Mariette,
    Your garden looks like a beautiful park! It must be so lovely to stroll through the paths and visit all your lovingly planted gardens and trees. The Gazebo looks like a cool oasis when it is hot, and also a place to get out of a sudden rain shower! So peaceful, but I know it is a lot of hard work and love that goes into it.
    Wishing you a pleasant weekend and hope for a bit of sunshine.
    Hugs xo

    1. Dearest Karen,
      Thank you and it is great for strolling through our own garden and woodgarden.
      Such a garden indeed takes a lot of back braking hard work; not for free and never easy but as long as we manage, we enjoy it!
      Enjoy your Sunday and sending you some sunshine (we had clouds, it's on and off).
      Hugs,
      Mariette

    It's been raining a lot here this weekend. I sure hope more sunshine, but I like hearing rain, too :-)

      Well, if rain results indeed in such a lush tropical looking garden, we don't mind the rain. In-between some sunshine is okay even if it means the balcony and the gazebo is often wet when we want to eat supper there...
      Sending you hugs, a couple of hours up north!
