We returned from our cruise on the First, 3 hours late due to a delay in Minneapolis and after being up for nearly 24 hours, we crashed in bed. Got up late Saturday morning and I went out to survey the gardens, which despite a few stumbles, fared pretty well. My daughter-in-law had trouble with my homegrown watering system and accidentally turned off the water to the raised beds and the corn may not recover, but the tomatoes and cucumbers are okay. Lost a fern, a sweet potato vine and some of the cannas (maybe), but overall it was better than I feared it would be.
The cruise was fantastic and I took over 1000 photos, including flowers and trees; the tulips were so large I may never grow them again as I know I won't be able to replicate anything close to them here.
Here are some selected shots from Stockholm, Sweden
These are from Sigtuna, Sweden
These are from Peterhof, Russia
And lastly, these are from Tivoli Garden, Copenhagen, Denmark
I've collected all the floral shots in an album on my Facebook page "Mr B's Garden".
