It's holiday time! Most of my friends are gone. Some Dutch friends I have here in Sparta went to their family in Holland, getting away from the heat and enjoying the rain! Another one went to Crete and is having a good time over there. She is staying with friends and brought them one of my bags as a present. She choose this black/red one.
I hang it in an orange tree for the picture. This is a summer orange tree. It has lovely very juicy oranges at the moment. Normal orange trees bear fruit in winter time. Next to this orange tree I have an Abutilon. It has flowers nearly the whole year around. It doesn't seem to like those heatwaves we are having and has one or two little flowers. In spring though, it looked like this.
The garden needs a lot of work at the moment. It's difficult for me to go away. But I had my holiday in March when I went to see my daughter in the States.I had a lovely time there.
