Airras, almonds don't grow here, so it's great to see them hanging in trees - Great pictures :thumbs: And your flower pictures on previous page are beautiful, I forgot to mention it earlier, sorry :rolleyes:

Riitta, your flowers are wonderful!

Nice cat, spatz, playing "hide and seek" :D

-

So pretty flowers on your terrace, airras - the first one could be a Clivia miniata, the second one is a Viola (it is a big family with bigger and smaller blossoms and a lot of colors)

I know not much about almond trees, they are not growing here. Do ripe almonds fall down from the tree? Do they keep their peel around it? Or do you have to pick them from the tree when they are ripe? In autumn or summer?

Riitta - you have a wonderful Clematis in your garden! It must be there already for years, so many flowers.

Cat-meeting in my parents garden, my parents´ cat "Moritz" (left side) and his girlfriend from the neighbourhood "Paula".
She is young and still so playful, sometimes a bit too much for Moritz´ taste :whistling:
