Yesterday it started raining, i hope it will rain for some days. At least, as also temperatures have dropped, garden will be safe for a while; water reservoirs need much more water to fill up

It had to come, it hasn't rained for months, now we have water restrictions and cannot water our gardens. Im desperate ...

Hot, hot, hot ... This summer will be a very hot summer again -like two years ago-, possibly with water restrictions as it nearly hasn't rained this winter and spring.

Hi again, spring is here or is it summer? This year is a bad year for gardens here in Spain as it was the dryest winter/spring for 60 years ... I hope that it still rains a bit before summer arrives.

Yesterday and today it is raining like it should have rained the whole winter; but I won't blame as now the garden is starting to grow and bloom everywhere and lots of water is needed ...

This winter we are having very low temperatures here in Madrid, the lowest in decades. Some nights we have reached -8ºC, some of the plants in the garden froze and died.

It is raining very little this autumn and beginning of winter. If it goes on like this we will have water shortage next summer.

Outside is finally falling the first real rain after more than four months of hot and dry days, great!

It is funny, we are still having summer temperatures over here but the leafs on my liquidambar are turning red already. Will this heat never stop?

Today I will start to prune the hedges in my garden to trim them to their original shapes and prepare them for the winter season.

Freshly returned from vacations, back to activity ... now starts a nice season here in Madrid.

Vacations, finally! I will use some of my time to add new contents to the site. See you.

Tuesday, July 06, 2004 10:23am
Hi everybody ... I have to apologize, as actually I am very busy creating gardens I have nearly no time to generate new contents for the site. But I promise to write the summer part of my garden during august. I will also publish more bonsai care guides.

Summer has finally started. I am working on the summer section of the garden which I will soon publish so keep connected.

This year, probably because of the rain and not too cold temperatures in winter, I have lots of different plagues in my garden, especially all kind of aphids (black, green and orange colored).

Torrential rainfalls yesterday converted streets in rivers and heavy winds shredded some trees in the neighbourhood.

It seems that finally has started spring (or summer?) here in Madrid, temperatures already reaching 33 degrees. Now is the moment to control the watering of bonsais and garden with much care.

Tuesday, May 11, 2004 09:28am
It is still raining in Madrid. Historically it is one of the rainiest months of may in a very long time. Anyway, very positive for the garden, bonsais and water reservoirs which are reaching their upper limits.

It is raining again. It seems like there will be no sunny spring this year, we will jump directly to summer. Is the climate changing or are we only entering a new level of a long lasting weather cycle?

Friday, April 16, 2004 10:17am
Spring does not want to come out this year. Some days were sunny and warm -in the sun-, now it is raining and cold again. But we have to keep in mind that the more water we get, the better will be the growth in spring and summer.

Wednesday, March 31, 2004 07:24pm
After the snow, three days of steady rain, well, perfect for this season. Now sun is out and I hope it stays for some days.

Saturday, March 27, 2004 08:34am
Weather is totally mad! Today it is snowing again ... I hope my recently repotted bonsais won't suffer under these conditions.

Friday, March 26, 2004 05:02pm
Today I have repotted all my bonsais, some hours of work. Last year I tried some new mixtures of soil, I will soon publish an article about the results and conclusions.

Tuesday, March 23, 2004 09:45pm
It seems that spring is over again. Today the temperature dropped 10 degrees and we will have rain tomorrow.

Friday, March 19, 2004 04:33pm
Today is one of those simply perfect sunny days which invites to work in the garden to prepare it for spring; i have planted a precious bambusa nigra near the pond.

Tuesday, March 16, 2004 12:42pm
It is time to purchase akadama, organic material, sand and other necessary materials as soon is the moment to repot the trees.

A new, sunny day has dawned in Madrid. I hope it is a forerunner for a democratic, calm and above all, human general election day.

Thursday, March 11, 2004 04:13pm
Today is a very sad day in Madrid. Hundreds have been killed in a terrible bomb blast. I am desolate ...

Saturday, March 06, 2004 02:02pm
It's time to prune the pyracantha hedge. I've discovered a lot of dead trunks, they must be replaced with new plants.

Tuesday, March 02, 2004 01:08pm
Today I have spread thirteen sacks of organic compost on the lawn, should appreciate it with a good growth this year.

Saturday, February 28, 2004 10:43am
For the next winter I have to think about a greenhouse for my bonsais. Today the soil was totally frozen.

Tuesday, February 24, 2004 11:30am
Snow is falling in Madrid in huge flakes today.

Sunday, February 22, 2004 10:35am
Yesterday it finally rained a lot after more than a month without a drop. Today it is freezing cold.

Today I have found webs on one of my ficus benjamina I have indoors. Very strange. Treated the tree with a shower and a very low dose of anti spider mite.


In this weblog I will just write down brief messages about things that happen with my bonsais and garden.
