May sprouting01.05.2021
Looking around me with my eyes open wide I like to compare everything with a human life. Including gardens. I must confess it took me some time to get to like perennials as I had rather been a tree person, admiring their strong branches, thick trunks, and crowns reaching for heaven. But bowing down to see these small creatures with soft leaves and gentle flowers enriched me with an entirely different perspective. They are like babies. Before spring you know they are there, somewhere in the ground, being prepared for a new life. And when their time comes they spring up from the ground, courageously, unaware of anything that might happen. They unroll their soft foliage and push up stems with flower buds eagerly soaking the sun and warmth, enjoying every moment and getting ready for maturity and reproduction. Just like humans.

And we watch their hurried race, feeling much more insecure than them, trying to watch and correct every step they make. As if we did not realize that this is their life, not ours, and we are here just to be around, perhaps only in advisory capacity if ever needed.

Let’s watch these babies today, without interfering, with no need to see their peak performance, enjoying their youth and brave growth. Just give a hand when too many enemies appear but let them learn to fight.

Happy Easter!04.04.2021
What a feeling to be 15 m above ground :-) Chopping down some old ashes I was offered a sky trip on a platform. A bit like traveling in a balloon, I suppose, and now I know I would love to make a balloon trip. Looking around from such height really gives you a perspective. One tends to forget about little things down there and wants to reach out for the sky.

You know what? Do so! Even if you your feet are still on the ground :-)

Happy Easter to everyone!

Cold weather in March made oriental hellebore bloom later and slowly which gives us more time to admire their beauty. Have a look what's blooming, they are simply divine!

The first day of spring20.03.2021
Do you know a more optimistic kind of work on the first spring day than clearing snow off the pavements? And see the employees how poor they want to appear on the camera :-) Let's make a short summary of today:

temperature: 0

number of singing birds: 0

trust in covid media: 0

number of ordered plants a day: 100+

Well, something seems to contradict the above zeros. Perhaps against all odds you are optimisting and believe that the real spring WILL come just like normal life. Crossfingers :-)
Berries of all colours14.02.2021
Autumn and winter is the time for coloured berries which please our sight and fill birds' stomach. They appear mostly on holly shrubs but there are afew other plants offering coloured fruit for our feathered friends.

Clusterberry holly is quite rare. It does not have the showiest foliage but offers perhaps the largest amount of fruit clustered along its branches.

On the other hand, Amber is a holly with very attractive leaves as well as unique orange fruit.

Pyramidalis holly also produces masses of berries.

Bacciflava and Bacciflava Spineless produce foliage as beautiful as Amber holly and bright yellow fruit.

And the lushest foliage belongs to Camelliifolia holly. It makes vibrant red fruit.

Do you like edible fruit of Teutonia Japanese dogwood? Birds do, too. The faster wins.

And if you think that sea buckthorn has enough fruit when it comes to who will eat the crop, you might like to think twice.

On the other hand there are shrubs which literally belong to birds, just like privet. In Czech language it is called bird food. Aptly named. Bon apetit, oiseaux :-)
Alright, I was wrong, I admit it ...10.02.2021
A month later we're back with an update of the latest video where I discovered that I was wrong. I suggest you wathc it not to make the same mistake as I did, sorry, guys :-)
