They say you should wait until after night-time frosts have subsided before you put your pretty perennials out on display but this year I don’t know if I want to wait anymore. The weather is nuts here. We have day time temps between 10 – 22 and night-time between 2 – 15 degrees Celsius and it is nearly June.
I was at the garden store last week and picked up some pretty flowers. I think the yellow and burgundy goes well with all the brickwork here. In Haugesund, the natural palette has more gray tones from the slate but here everything is a warm reddish brown. My husband’s boss commented once that everything in Germany is either green or brown (trees or bricks) and so far I can’t find a reason to disagree.
