Back home.....


By nanjo


Hi everyone,
Well I’ve been back a while ( 2wks ) and managed to stake the foxgloves that were lying in the garden when I got back….they are a strange shape tho’ with the flower spikes bending to get to the light. The begonias that were growing well when I left just seemed to have stopped growing so I put them back in the greenhouse! The runner beans hadn’t done much either and the dwarf french beans I planted have mostly been eaten by the slugs and snails, even tho’ I put slug pellets down…
My apple tree that has 2 types of apple only flowered on the top part of the tree but on looking closer the tiny apples that had started to form have shrivelled up :( no apples this year !! The laburnum that has flowered so magnificently for me over the last few years didn’t have 1 single flower this year. My neighbour reckoned that the frost caught it.
On a brighter note…Corfu was beautiful – even if it was too hot for me. Just a few pics ….

This Bouganvilla was a living car port at Parga which is on the Greek mainland. Such a clever and beautiful idea.

This is a view looking towards the Old Fort in Corfu town.

One view from the Hotel in Barbati.. looking towards the mountains.

Looking towards the Albanian coast ( the ones in the distance )

The decking areas on the rocks down to the sea.

Looking towards the beach.

Night time around the pool.

A silver pathway across the sea to the lights of Corfu town.

Part of the Hotel

Another View

Looking over the balcony by the pool, the roof is another part of the Hotel and the rocks and sea are further below that !

Bet you didn't want to come home to our Weather. That last pic is lovely - very imaginative!
But I bet that car port drops bits on the car!

Thank you all for your comments, it was a lovely place but not much good if you have walking difficulties ( luckily I don't ) :-)
