Belle de Nuit

May is hectic in the gîte.  There being four holiday weekends on the trot we have customers for four successive weekends, which does not leave much time for anything other than looking after customers and keeping the gîte in good condition.  We have a rule, arrived at through hard experience, that we never do more than four weekends in a row: we get too tired, and the customers start to notice.  The fourth one is next weekend.

Meanwhile the garden continues to grow with Spring energy.  The Iris are nearly all out.  Here's a couple of pictures.  The blue one is called Belle de Nuit, the pink one is Changing Winds.

We used to be seriously fagged out after weeks of changeovers when we had four gites...but we had nothing like the numbers you entertain.

I do like the Belle de Nuit....I don't see them here, but begin to wonder about trying them in troughs to move in and out according to the seasons...then it occurs to me that I will be doing exactly what we did in France - just with different plants.

They look superb and help as the hectic pace grips.

James: They do help. I take a few minutes out to admire (and photograph) them. A little pause in the rush is always welcome.

Helen: Thanks for the comment. I will be dividing the plants this year so if you want me to sling a few your way, just say. I don't know what the laws are regarding international plant shipping though....
