Herbie, I'm not sure what all affects them. I just wondered. So far you are lucky. Maybe they won't be bothered by anything. I love Ava's new avatar photo!

Rann, big smile. July is just slipping away! I too moved things and will still be doing that this Fall.

So pretty!

I do have the Yellow Flag. They say it's invasive, but I have it in a dry shaded spot and it hasn't gone wild on me yet.

I also have one of the Martagon Lilies. I love them for being so different. Your's is such a pretty pink!

Roses and Foxglove IS a beautiful combination! I read it all the time in my flower books. My neighbor and I have trouble keeping Foxglove. I can barely keep the yellow perennial Ambigua going. Out of three, I have one plant left. The poppy is so pretty with them too!

Thank you both :)

The yellow flag will never be invasive here, it's in the wettest spot in my garden and seems very happy there :) The foxgloves self-seed like crazy (as do the poppies), but they're so pretty I let them .... Big Grin I'm going to let fewer seedpods ripen this year though .... Whistling

Been there, done that, with the overseeding, LOL! Cottage effect turns into a mess!

Kelli, smiling over no fig tree now. The bugs and critters do seem to get to things first. I wonder if they are soft when ripe? Herbie will have to let us know. Plus, I wonder how they taste right off the tree.

i can tell ou thee is nothing quite like a fig right off gthe tree. as a young boy my grand fathe had huge fig trees in the back yard. they were so big (to us little tots) that by brothe and i used to cimb them to get at the figs. when you bit into one the juice would run down your mouth.

i'll haveto ask deb to take care of the tree when i go into the hospital for my knee surgery on thursday.

Hi;
My name is Rafal, I come from Poland, your garden looks realy nice :-) congratulation!, what surprised me a lot is that I've got almost the same varietes of plants in my garden, but they get flowers 1,5 months earlier, so photo nearly the same as mine from the end of may!

Hi Rafal and welcome :) Thank you so much, interesting that you're growing many of the same plants :) Not surprising that they're more than a month earlier to flower with your heat. Needless to say we can't grow any late flowering plants, so the plants flowering now in your garden would probably be too late to flower here. Whistling

Herbie, the figs sound good! Climbing the tree sounds fun! I loved being up in a tree. If there was fruit, all the better!

Hi Rafal! So neat to hear from gardeners so far away :o)

Hello;
An example of summer's impressions. Photos have been taken today in my garden (warsaw, Poland). I'm very impressed, that you have such a beautiful garden in such windy, humid, cold in summer climat.
I also try to keep in my garden some sensitive plants like Araukaria or palms (Trachycarpus) which is noty that easy, because winter can be severe here (last winter -30 C).
That's what I noticed, there is one common thing about the climat in our countries, spring arrives almost at the same time - snowdrops and crocuses appear in mid. march usually.

Rafal - hope you get the issue with the photos sorted out - l'd love to see some from your garden! Thumbs up

Your winters are much colder than ours, it hardly ever gets below -10°C here. Interesting that spring arrives around the same time ....

A few more photos:

Rann, flowers look very nice indeed. These blue flowers are unique!, do you know the latin name?, I have never seen them before, so I don`t know the name even in my native tongue. Also yellow roses I like very much. Rann, you have changed a bit my perception of Iceland :-) ! . I put some photos, some single flowers, soon I will add some of them with wide view of my garden

Rafal - the latin name is Thalictrum diffusiflorum - it's a gem :) Beautiful photos! You have a lovely garden. Love the butterfly on the Echinacea too :)

Thank you :) There's a pretty sharp contrast between the gardens here and the landscape out in the countryside :)

I took this photo on Monday night - a lake just ouside of town

Hi;
Your Island is very beautiful and diverse and in fact recently is quite popular as a vacation destination, particulary for young people form Poland.
Today I've heard very funny inf. about your country: It was said in our weather forecast, that there was very warm day today in some places, up to 23 C, the comment was : "even in Iceland this summer is warmer:-)", there was only 15 today in some palces in Pl. Maby you will have some influx of nice southern birds? (by the was there is a very nice webside about birding in Iceland).
About the plant, you gave me the latin name - now I know the name ;-), even one of the species from this family, (with small pinkish flawers in may) I keep in my garden. I thought, that I might be Anemone - I've got one of them which a bit similar.
Rann let me show you some other photos for the last time (I know, it is forum about gardening in Iceland not in Pl). I included also an anemone I mentioned

Rafal - feel free to post as many photos as you like from your garden :) We love to see them. Thumbs up Is that Anemone huphensis in the first photo? If so, I also have that, but it doesn't flower here until August.

Hilarious! about the weather comment - it's been fairly warm this summer, but last summer was better. Until this past week we've had some really nice sunny weather with temperatures around 15°C. But it rained all week and it's only been 11-13°C, which for somer reason is considerably cooler than 15-16°C. Not raining today althouth it is cloudy.

Rafal, how beautiful!! What a fantastic butterfly!

Rann, ditto! I'm amazed that flowers are blooming at such cool temps!

I love the Thalictrum too. Hard to find, but I did finally get three, no, four plants planted this Spring, but they will be lavender. I got lucky and had an extra, tiny root that I babied. It grew!

Wow on the lake photo!

Rafal, just beautiful! As long as Rann doesn't mind, I am really enjoying your pictures!
