This is a tree that grows in Malta and at the moment in July its blooming, i took close up photos too of the flower itself i saw pink ones and white ones.
These are the new flowers on the tree, and below i only got a few good photos of the white tree. I wish i knew the names of these beautiful plants.
This is an ivy that grows everywhere in Malta.
all of these photos were taken at night.

Parsley, dill and wild strawberry leafs.
Mint and in the background you can see spring onion about to bloom. I always buy spring onion so i end up throwing out alot, this year as I have somewhere to plant I just put them in the pot and they all grew fine. You can do this with all the herbs you buy, especially the potted ones. This mint and parsley bellow are from a pot i bought at a shop. Also you should always devide the herbs, as they will spread more. You dont need a garden shop for buying herbs. If you need advise, please dont hesitate to ask.
This is one of the pots that i took into my garden, as it was thrown out. I took this in last winter and only now i saw new shoots growing from the yucca. This pot contained Llex Aquifolium or commonly known as english or european holly and in spring I noticed many small daffodils and tulips starting to sprout from the ground. You never know what will start growing when you collect thrown out pots.
