Nevenka's garden

Tables and chairs on the patio

My friend Nevenka lives in a small town called Pakrac which is only 4 km away from Lipik where I live. She and her husband owe a popular pub "Scorpion". They use the garden patios to place the chairs and tables and all the guests are really thrilled by the atmosphere. Who would not be happy in a lovely garden? Recently, a literary evening was held in the garden where the two authors have presented their new books.

A view from the second terrace. I am making the plan for the border in front of the brick wall that we will plant in autumn.


Early in the spring this year she asked me to help her planning new borders. The garden is very nice as it is. It is divided by the low brick walls in three levels. There are many mature trees and shrubs and lots of flowers in the garden. It only needed a little bit more order in flower beds. They are not planned but planted randomly as the new plants arrived. Nena has an eye for nice details, such as this old sewing machine that serves as a flower pot stand.

She has also lots of pot plants that find their place on patios when the frost time is gone. A palm, Burgmansia, Clivia, Clematis, Alocasia and Oleander find their place on patios.

Clivia has flowered in March.


  1. Feeder mi je počeo raditi za tvoj blog. Morala sam ispočetka ga upisati.
    Slike su super, ova druga mi se posebno sviđa. Ja tu ne bih ništa mijenjala, baš mi dobro izgleda. Ali će sigurno biti još ljepše kad sredite sve.

  2. Samo će gredica ispred zida biti malo bogatija, tj. šira. Tamo je sunčani dio pa ćemo staviti nešto više biljaka za kasno ljeto. Pregrupiranje, kako ja to zovem. Ljudi često nemaju dovoljno biljaka nego po jednu od svega pomalo... mi ćemo povećati broj iste vrste i složiti ih prema visini. Mislim da će biti OK.
    Ne znam što je to s blogovima, meni se neki jako teško otvaraju i listaju...
