spent six weeks at Grabov Rat, from mid-February till the end of
March. The main task was to start our garden, a Mediterranean type
of garden to be more precise. For the first two weeks I was
strangled by unusually bad weather but March was rather nice and I
did catch up with the gardening goals.
fascination with the stormy skies in February, particularly early
morning sky, is portrayed in the first half of this gallery
presenta-tion. End of winter it was, certainly - or maybe, to
allow some benevolence, a spring was on horizon.
March gardening achievements are documented in the second part of
the presentation. Over two hundred plants were placed into the
ground of our five terraces, a formidable work. Not all soil
preparations were done quite properly, however - the consequence
of the February weather conditions.
photo on the right, a stormy sea under the wind named ‘bora’,
was selected to exemplify the winter on Grabov Rat. It probably
does not do a good job - would you perceive from the picture that
the bora gusts were so intense that I could not keep an upright
walk position around our pojata?
