Flowers at Casa Debbio

Despite a recent cool change, spring is bringing changes at Casa Debbio. Everyday something new appears. Daffodils and cherry blossoms have gone and now we have a steady stream of new loveliness.
Our ginestra, broom, has put on a spectacular show and is now on the way out.

Some wisteria has bloomed and some is still to open.

I now have 55 peonies. A few have bloomed but many are still to appear.

Ants love the sticky flowers buds and are very busy right now.

I spotted some furry bugs burrowing into the centre of the peonies. They seemed to roll about covering themselves in pollen before flying off in a drunken daze.

Bees love my peonies too.

When the peony flowers are finished these interesting bits are left.

Lilac has bloomed.

The creamy white pom-poms on the ricotta bush are looking fabulous.

Tiny aquilegias are blooming everywhere.

Violets are scattered all over the garden.

Bleeding hearts surprised me with an appearance.

The fig trees are laden with tiny fruit. I hope some ripen before we leave. No doubt our guests will enjoy them this summer, along with the cherries and raspberries.

Wild daisies are growing on the slopes between the terraces.

The garden is growing well, but we need some rain, then some sun. We had some warm weather early, but cool days have returned.

It is a joy to walk out every morning to see the new growth.
If you know anyone who would like to stay in a gorgeous mountain house in Italy this summer, please share this post.
