Lockdown #2 Day 6 – Reconfinement Jour 6

View from my kitchen window

We have clay soil which makes this slope a challenge. We are in that period when there are still flowering perennials such as Japanese anemones that lose their leaves in winter while those that flower in winter such as Christmas roses (hellebore) are just starting to bloom. Last year the deer ate them all but we put up a new fence at the bottom of the garden recently so I’m hoping they will survive!

Nous avons une terre argileuse ce qui rend ce talus difficile à aménager. Nous sommes à une époque de l’année où les vivaces caducs comme les anémones japonaises qui perdent sont encore bien en fleurs tandis que celles qui fleurissent en hiver comme les roses de Noël (les hellébores) commencent à s’épanouir. L’année dernière elles ont été mangées par les chevreuils mais nous avons mis un nouveau grillage au fonds du jardin donc j’espère qu’elles vont survivre.

My Algerian Irises have started to flower. If you got any in that clump I gave you, they may not flower this year due to being disturbed, but hopefully you’ll get something. If not, May next year for the Siberians!
