Hello and welcome to see what was blooming in our garden in Emilia-Romagna at the end of July, during our visit in Italy. You may remember that it was very warm in Central and Southern Europe in those weeks. Our garden and those of our neighbours were dreaming of some rain.
Oleanders (Nerium), crape myrtles (Lagerstroemia), bignonias, and rose mallows (Hibiscus syriacus) were the superstars of the moment.
(I never knew crape myrtles are called "kutriot" in Finnish. Thank you, Wikipedia!)
It's said that Emilia-Romagna's viticultural heritage dates back as far as the seventh century BC.
