Le Jardin 2010-1 (janvier-avril)

Encore une belle année dans le jardin! J'ai l'impression de montrer les mêmes fleurs tous les ans. Il est peut être temps de clore ces galeries du jardin. Je m'intéresserai aux autres jardins, publics et privés, dorénavant.
Cette année quelques plantes sont mortes d'autres sont de plus en plus magnifique, c'est ça le jardinage et de remplir les trous avec de nouvelles découvertes!
Les chevreuils ont encore fait ravage dans les rosiers, mais ils sont tellement beaux!
Un jardin c'est après tout un partage avec la nature, ça nous appartient pas vraiment!
Once again a beautiful year in the garden! I seem to be showing the same flowers every year; perhaps I will stop these photo galleries of my garden and show other people's instead, parks or private gardens.
Every year some plants die yet others get more and more magnificent, that is what gardening is and then to fill up the holes with newly discovered plants!
The roe deers have been playing havoc in the roses, but they are so beautiful!
A garden after all is something we share with nature, it never really belongs to us!
