Hello and welcome to my Cubit about gardening and life in general here in Iceland.

To those of you who haven't met me yet, I'm Rannveig and I live on the SW coast of Iceland, about 10 min. from the capital Reykjavík.

If you're interested in seeing what plants can be grown in our challenging climate, please check out my Garden Flora website: http://sites.google.com/site/icelandgardenflora

If you're interested in discovering something about my country, our culture and our gardens, stick around! You might learn something new!

Rann for the snow bound people on all continents (and I know it's not 'your' garden)
could you post one of your wild Lupine shots?

I still find them simply Amazing!

Good Luck!!!

Connie - thank you *Blush*

Ric - here you go :-)

Midnight in June .... this is the reason I wouldn't want to live anywhere else. Those magical summer nights.

The average temperature in July is around 54°F I think ..... highs are typically high 50's to mid 60's; lows, 40's - 50's. The highest recorded temperature in Reykjavik is about 72°F ..... might be slightly higher. That record high was in July 2008, can't remember exactly what it was, but it was incredibly warm compared to what we're used to.

I'm so glad you started this Cubit, Rann. I'm looking forward to learning even more about Iceland than I have in the past from your posts on the weather forum, both here on Cubits and on DG.

That's a lovely photo. It reminds me that, after you had posted something in the wee hours of the morning one time, I asked you when did you sleep (during those many hours of sunlight in the summer) and you answered: "I sleep in December." Big Grin Big Grin Big Grin

Hilarious! Yeah it's hard to sleep in summer, you don't want to miss a moment of those precious days. And being out in the garden at night is just wonderful ;-) Actually for most of December I'm too busy to make preparations for Christmas to sleep, but for the rest of December and then January ...... zzzzzzzzzz Rolling on the floor laughing It's really hard to get going in the morning when sunrise is after 11 am ........

This is the magical sunrise I stayed up for that night in question. It was at 3:40 am. It was completely calm and completely quiet apart from the birds singing .....
