                                                                                        summer

In the summer you can enjoy the plants and flowers. Sometimes there are also less nice moments. In June 2004 during a storm my staghorn sumac has blown down. My woman complained sometimes about too much shade and she was right.  But nevertheless....

A beautiful plant is the valerian or Jupiter's beard. It always reminds me of our holidays in Ireland. There they were growing and flowering everywhere in the walls. So they need not much water or fertile soil. When they are out of flower, you can cut them off and you have in autumn still nice flowers.
An Atalanta on your trousers gives a good feeling.

waterlelie (Nymphaea firecrest) In the pond the ĎFirecrest' Waterlily (Nymphaea firecrest) is flowering much better now. Iíve moved it to a more sunny place. Itís not a large species, but thatís just nice. It flowers from June to September. Water depth: 30 to 80 centimetres. It has got the name fire (fire)  because the colour  of the stamens. These change from yellow to orange. Flowers seem to spread a sweet fragrance. But when you want to smell it, you have to put it in a mini pond.
Against the house we have a Climbing Rose (Rosa New Dawn). In fact the spot  is too dark in the summer, because the shade of the chestnuts. Still it is flowering. Perhaps with less flowers, but they are nice and smell delicious. 
It b
looms to late spring. On the winter page there is also a photo. The pale pink blooms are scented.

Flowers and insects belong together. I enjoy both. Both belong in the garden. Although some insects are harmful to plants. Mostly the plants will survive when they grow on the right place.
There is so much to tell. I hope you will visit my insect pages. (And of course the page about the enemy number one... the spider!)
About these beautiful flowers you can find information on the page "summerflowers".

The first Wednesday in August, we have "verlichtingsavond" in Bergen. I take all the glasses and pots from the attic. At night we put tea lights into the glasses. 
There are always many visitors in the village. 
The first "verlichtingsavond" was a lot of years ago. Namely in 1926.
