Default Some time off

Hello guys! I was off these days.. went to Halkidiki! I got to spend some time with my garden and go to the sea! I had a few pics;
this is a side of my garden

This is our apple tree- that poor tree is sick

Lavender

Our fig tree

Lemon tea tree (that's how we call it)

roses

Grapes

tomatoes

peppers

a small sunflower plant or Helianthus

green beans

do you see this one with the dark edge? it produces black-eyed beans

The other day I went to the sea...this mountain over there is mount Olympus!


I was back there the next morning

this is the nearest village

The same afternoon I was walking and I saw a strange thing; wild bees made their nest inside an electricity case of a house! I have to see the electricity employees' reactions!

and the sunset of that day

Hope you all enjoyed it!

Such beautiful pictures thanks for sharing. I'm fascinated by the bees!

Thank you Niamh!! I really had a good time away from the city, taking care of the garden makes me relax!
yes, wild bees are pretty nasty and they nested in a strange place! I'd like to see how they are going to make them go away from that case!

Your garden looks great, Despina!
I love the sea so I'm always happy to see pictures of that sort.
The bees certainly did choose a different sort of place to build their nest!
Glad I'm not going to be the one to open that electrical box!

It's great that you have so much space on your garden to have multiple trees, flowers and veggies, Despina!
On my garden I can only have one fruit tree and by the end of last year, I had to have my very old plum tree cut off. Now I am growing a new one, and by next summer I should have some delicious plums.

The technicians who will read the electricity numbers are up for quite the surprise! They should wear those special outfits before disturbing the bees' nest.

Thanks Miss Faery Bee! I also love the sea and it was hard to leave that area yesterday! Indeed, I was wondering how these bees got there and then I saw that there was a tiny space next to that wire on the left! I don't want to guess how they will be able to make them go away!

Thank you Ana! I enjoy the garden hours, it needs a lot of work but it's totally relaxing! I have 2 plum trees but they are a smaller mutation! I am looking forward to see some pics of your tree there Yes, I wouldn't want to be that technician to find out what happened to that case!

Thank you Lyn! You know gardening is a lot of hard work but the results are very rewarding! who wouldn't eat his/her own veggies? Oh, I'll come back to this beach soon!

Glad to see your garden doing well. I love black-eyed beans. Looks like you have a lot of green beans. I like to saute' them with butter and lemon juice. Then sprinkle with blue cheese crumbles when serving, and sometimes crumbled bacon too. Maybe you can get a little honey .
