All is pretty































One of the publicity posters for the first retrospective exhibition of  Andy Warhol's work in Sweden in 1968 read: 'All is pretty'. Although you can't compare mr Warhols work with my garden, I thought I would use his words anyway, because I think in June my garden looks it's best. 

It's the month when the leaves are still green and disease free, when the soil is moist, the plants haven't taken over yet, and there are roses everywhere. In combination with foxgloves, lupins, aliums and ladies mantle, they add romance to it all. I am so glad I chose the greenish grey colour for my little garden house all those years ago. It makes the colours of the flowers stand out. 

It's one or two weeks at the utmost that the roses in my garden are in flower all at once and look most alluring, but to me it's one of the highlights of the year. If you would like to see more, please have a look at my Instagram account. I posted a film of my garden on the 8th of June.

Is all pretty in your garden too, or has the warm weather of the past few weeks taken it's toll?

Wishing you a good time in the garden!

Love,

Madelief  X

  7. Ook hier is de tuin op zijn mooist, al moest ik daar de afgelopen week wel even heel erg mijn best voor doen. Na bijna 4 weken vakantie had er een explosie plaats gevonden van het pispotje. Maar na een week hard werken en zweten ben ik ook weer heel blij met mijn tuin.
    Wat zijn je rozen prachtig, het is een heel goed rozenjaar.
    Ik heb weer genoten van je prachtige foto's van de tuin.
    Fijne dag.
    Groetjes Marja

  10. The garden is beautiful. Here we are sweltering in heat. The roses are nearing the end of their first bloom cycle and get really droopy with the heat. We do a lot of watering. I always enjoy you flower and garden photos because of the spectacular color. I especially like the one with the old wood as a background.

  15. Your garden is always pretty to me. Just beautiful! We were away part of May and when we returned the roses were amazing, just huge and fully in bloom. They are still blooming, but slowing down a bit with the heat. The hydrangeas are definitely beginning to shine, along with daisies, lavender, and calla lilies. Such a wonderful time of year. By the way, I love your haircut.

  16. Je tuin staat er prachtig bij, Madelief. Inmiddels heb je ook een privé fotograaf zo te zien ;-). Wat is het elke keer toch weer genieten van de zee aan bloemen, die jij elk jaar weer weet te creëren. Daar zit voor mijn tuin nog wel een verbeterpunt, er mag wel iets meer kleur in aangebracht worden.

    Ik wens je nog een heel fijn weekend! Veel liefs, Ingrid

  25. Madelief,

    Jij daar, in je bloemenrijk...
    Ik wens je zomerse dagen vol geur en kleur...


    Als je een roos was
    voor je geboorte
    of een tamarinde
    een zilveren hemelster...
    ben je dat vergeten...

    Maar wat je weet is
    dat je bent...
    zal zijn...

    ogenblikken...
    flarden van eeuwigheid...
