I try to post daily photos on my gardenfora website and thought I'd post them over here as well. Since nothing's growing over here at this time they're just random photos from past years:

Here's a link to the daily photos posts: http://sites.google.com/site/icelandgardenflora/dailyphoto20...

This is today's photo:

A really nice variety of pansies called 'Chianti' from Thompson & Morgan. Lovely color combinations.

Morning!

Today's photo is Dianthus deltoides:
Thumb of 2011-01-27/rannveig/8ec130

A bright reminder of summer on a gray and rainy day. Still can't complain since the temp is in the 40's Big Grin Besides there's something soothing to me about a misty fog like today - not too thick, just enough to lend a misterious air to the surroundings.

Have a nice day!

Hi Adina! :)

Thank you :) Yes! We have snow! Finally Big Grin I was starting to think we wouldn't get any real snow this winter. We've had snow for two days now - we'll see how long it'll last.

Today's photo:
Lavatera 'Silver Cup' - really nice, compact variety from Thompson & Morgan

Incredible! Do they have some explanations for this lack of snow in Iceland?

I think the only explanation for the lack of snow is - global warming ;) We just don't get as much snow as we used to when I was a kid. But there are about 5-6 inches of snow on the ground now .... it will last for a few days at least.

Thanks Kelli :) They're called Redwings - the only native thrush here. Most of them migrate but there are always some here in the SW that stay through winter and rely on people putting out food when it snows.

A feast in the garden :)

Lots of snow now - finally! The sun is getting higher on the horizon - high enough to shine through the living room window for the first time this year :) Nice to have bright daylight back Big Grin Sunset is now after 5 pm - it doesn't get dark until after 6 Hurray!

Thanks Connie :) Keeping busy certainly helps - although I'm getting too tired and really could sleep a few days if I had the time .... Whistling

Thank you Adina - it's Lychnis calcedonica, don't know the common english name. It's hardy here.
