Something will always grow. Whether you plant or not, nature will take care of empty spaces and fill them with plants.
Weeds bloom early. It’s one of the many plants that nature decided I need in my garden. This is (I think) a Veronica polita, grey field-speedwell.
I didn’t plant that! I think this Iris reticulata is a leftover from my predecessor. It sure looks pretty! Oh and the tiny pink flowers below it must be Lamium (dead-nettle, in German Taubnessel – deaf nettle).
I can hardly wait for my two Japanese cherry trees to finally blossom! In April 2022 I was in Kew Garden just at the right time to enjoy hundreds of cherry blossom trees, so I decided I want my own. I can only wait and hope that they actually flourish here in Switzerland.
The Elderberry is already showing some leaves. I tried to grow some cuttings last year but they didn’t take; maybe I’ll try again this year.
There’s always something to harvest. I decided to prune the Salvia and also the Rosemary, and while I was trying to get my Couve Galega back into order I also plucked the fresh spring „rosettes“ from its thick stems.

Weeds have their own beauty and of course there are no such things as weeds, only plants in the wrong places!
We do well to take note of what nature does too, it has a rather better record of sustainability than humans do. When are more plants ever a bad thing?
Yes, I like all those plants! My garden is full of insects too. I just make space when I want to grow something for myself, the rest belongs ro the weeds.
