I find your garden just wonderful!
Thanks for sharing and your well written article.
I live in S-Iceland. We have an unusual cold spring, with night frost up to 5-7 degrees celsius, or 20 °F. And there's not been any rain nor snow here in weeks, so the ground id crubly and dry. I feel for the plants and wildlife here now, this is very hard for nature.
Here's a pic from my garden
