No flamingos here, but we have tulips.

A macro from my amaryllis shocking us all with its pink. It is still growing, but now only leaves and I am feeding it weekly, hoping that it will survive and return again next year. What could possibly go wrong?
Found on the railway line between Basel and Olten, where the fuchsias definitely do not grow, but a can of spray paint works wonders.
What do you do when you do not have any vivid violet in your archives, your book shelf, your garden or in your clothes cupboard. Your manufacture vivid violet with the help of the cover to a book and a torch. Lay the book on the table, turn the torch on and let it shine. That is my story and I am sticking to it.
I had a wisteria in my garden and it grew and grew and grew. It climbed over the wires and probably had an attack of claustraphobia as it began to climb upwards to the neighbour’s balcony above. She was thrilled and found it lovely, but I had to warn her and I cut it away. Wisteria have the habit of completely covering the walls of a house, no matter how high, and we live in a ground floor appartment.
One day we decided the wisteria must go, as it was threatening to take over the garden and sprouting in places where it should not sprout. The gardener arrived and removed everything. Three months later it was growing again in a different place. It was like the invasion of the wisteria body snatchers. I cut it down after a short fight and have never seen it since, but I am convinced it is still waiting somewhere in the depths.
Anyone for ratatouille – with aubergine, how purple can you get.
Yes there are mountains, the Jura and the sky slowly diffuses into purple, almost.
