Here we go with spring time and lovely weather here in Pavia too. And on our balcony few tulips came out. The red one was prepared by Lorenzo at school, while the other one comes from the last “Mercatino Europeo”.
Sometimes here we shown some of our orchids (here, here and here, for example). We love them, and although we are not expert, we are lucky enough because they periodically bloom. BUt it is the first time that three of them bloom simultaneously. Not bad…
The botanic experiment we are starting in these period is about strawberries. We love them a lot, so we decided to plant few shoots in a vase. Now they don’t look so promising, but let’s hope that soon we will be able to proudly eat our strawberries.
We often publish some post about our beautiful orchids (see here for example); although we recognize that it is not because of us, we are quite proud of them, and we like to show the last flowers that, in this period, are embellishing our apartment.
At the end spring time arrived, but the last wet weeks were quite terrible. And we noted some nice mushrooms within our cyclamen on the balcony…
During the European Food Market you can find not only food, but also nice (and cheap) flowers from Holland. This year cyclamens were particularly cheap, so, together with Silvia’s mom we bought 24 of them for only 10 euros. Not so bad…
We often proudly published some pictures about our orchids (here, here and here). We are not so expert, probably we are just lucky, but orchids here seems to happily live. So today we cannot avoid to show you that three of our five orchids bloomed at the same time. Aren’t they so nice?
La primavera, anno dopo anno, porta fiori bellissimi in casa sacchibelli. E quest’anno, nonostante negli ultimi giorni il meteo sia peggiorato, le premesse sono ottime. La piccola orchidea che da anni ci allieta e’ tornata a fiorire (l’ultima volta era stato nel 2009, come testimoniato qui) e questa e’ davvero una bellissima notizia. E poi, dai bulbi di tulipano che Ali e Fil ci hanno regalato, dopo il bellissimo tulipano rosa gia’ postato qui, e’ ora spuntato un rispettosissimo ed elegante tulipano nero; non ancora del tutto schiuso, ma decisamente nero!!!
Spring time always brings new flowers here at sacchibelli’s. This year, although now weather looks quite bad, the old orchid that we already posted in 2009 (here), gave us new flowers. Moreover after the pink tulip posted , a new tulip appeared from the bulbs Ali and Fil gave us last Christmas: a black one!!!
Lo scorso Natale i nostri cari amici Ali e Fil ci hanno regalato 4 bulbi di tulipani, un regalo a noi graditissimo vista la nostra passione per i fiori. E ormai che la primavera e’ arrivata, ecco che il primo dei 4 tulipani ha fatto capolino. E restiamo in attesa degli altri tre, per ora germogliati ma non ancora fioriti.
Last Christmas our friends Ali e Fil gave us as a gift 4 tulip bulbes. We really like flowers, and now that spring time has arrived, here you can see the first one.
Spring time at the end arrived, and today weather was so warm that we had the sensation to be at the beginning of the summer. And after the winter, nature is coming back… So here you can see the first flower of the season from our yellow hibiscus
