See above our mini front garden (this is an “after” pic). A part of its plants have been destroyed by some works we had done and I wasn’t too happy with the way things were, anyway, so it was perfect time for a change. Also because (as I read on another gardening blog), fall is the best period for planting perennial plants, as the roots have time until spring to get adjusted and many plants are on sale.

Vedeti mai sus mini-gradina din fata casei noastre (este o poza “dupa”). O parte din plantele ei au fost distruse in timpul unor lucrari si nu eram prea multumita de starea lucrurilor, oricum, asa ca era un moment potrivit pentru o schimbare. De asemenea (asa cum am citit pe un alt blog despre gradinarit), toamna este perioada cea mai buna pentru a planta plante perene, deoarece radacinile au timp pana la primavara sa se obisnuiasca, dar si pentru ca multe plante sunt la oferta.


Unlike ever, I did some internet research, trying to make a plan so that we would have flowers in the garden most of the year. But of course, the plants I had written down were not available in the store. So I improvised, as always 🙂

Ca niciodata, am cercetat pe internet incercand sa fac un plan pentru a avea flori in gradina un timp cat mai indelungat. Dar, desigur, plantele pe care mi le notasem nu erau disponibile in magazin. Asa ca am improvizat, ca intotdeauna 🙂


I went for one Callicarpa, I just could not resist these amazing purple berries!

Am ales o Callicarpa, nu am putut rezista acestor boabe mov incredibile!


Then came these hopefully yellow blooming ones (2 kinds). When we bought them, they were already ready for their winter sleep, so we’ll see them in full glory next year.

Apoi au venit aceste plante care sper ca vor avea flori galbene (2 tipuri). Cand le-am cumparat erau deja pregatite pentru hibernare, asa ca le vom vedea in toata splendoarea la anul.

The plastic sticks mark the new plants (not that visible otherwise).

Betigasele din plastic marcheaza plantele noi (altfel nu asa de vizibile).

About two weeks later I added some bulbs for an extra colour boost coming spring:

La vreo doua saptamani am adaugat niste bulbi pentru un plus de culoare la primavara:

I’m looking forward to next spring and summer, hoping to see all these flowers, until then PATIENCE (what’s new?) 🙂

Abia astept primavara si vara viitoare, in speranta ca voi vedea toate florile acestea, pana atunci RABDARE (nimic nou!) 🙂
