I have just joined this group. My garden in Spain goes from lush and in the spring to baking hot and brown in the summer so we aim to create a oasis for the summer months. Since flowers are impossible in the garden in the summer we keep a lot in pots and have them on the porch.

You have a lovely place, enjoy every moment of it.

It's lovely now, but in a month it will be hell when the heat arrives. Spring is very beautiful here, but then I think it is probably the best season everywhere.

@CeliaVL I don't believe we'll ever get a summer here, it got down to 45 again last night and very cloudy today and only going to be up to 63. I don't see how anything can grow around here with it being as cold as it been at night.


The pond is a source of great pleasure. We have frogs and salamanders but no fish as we get snakes (harmless) that eat them. We also get wonderful dragon and damselflies. When the waterlilies come out I'll post another picture. It's nice to sit and look at the water, just for a bit of peace and contemplation.

Looks like you have a lot to work with. You have already graduated to bodies of water. You're way ahead of my curve.


And you have a lovely pond!


It looks lovely. I envy you. I hope you have a lovely time in Spain.

I love the idea, but I'm not one for the heat.

I hate the heat! I try to flee to England for the summer but this year it could be difficult because of family problems.


Oh no Celia! In that case, I hope you manage to stay cool this time.


Lovely! A pond is a great feature. Almost looks like an evergreen tree, like a fir, behind the pond, but I am probably mistaken.

We have a few different evergreens. the various 'cupressus' do the best, and the evergreen oak. The one immediately behind the pond is an temperate climate fir which we liked because of its blue foliage but it is not happy here - too hot.


Gardeners will find a way! Your flowers are lovely ☺
