o.k. everyone. weeds sent me her address so all is well.
mail is very rarely lost. what happensis that for some reason it become undeliverable. sometimes the address is wrong or the Zip code is no good. it is no excuse though. the postal service should bve able to deliver it but smetimes people jusge lazy. where i work we have a very large room whee all undeliverable mail ends up. this undliverable mail is put ionto very large boxes that are about 5 feet across and about 5 feet high. at any given time we have maybe 50 boxes in the rfoom at a time. we get bfrand new books fomr world famous authors, thousands of instant shavers, all kids of feminie products and perfume samples etc.
but don't worry my sweet weeds, i will be mailing out a book on monday.

A few years back there was an article in the English "Garden", the magazine of the Royal Horticultural Society, by the director of the Botanic Gardens in Iceland which I found very interesting - especially when I moved to a colder climate. I remember s/he pointed out how important good snow cover was for protecting plants.
That's interesting George. It's very true that snow is the best protection from winter cold .... unfortunately we don't get much snow many years ..... I've used christmas trees amongst other things for winter cover ....
Yes, I try to visit the Botanical Gardens in Reykjavík at least once during the summer .... there's also a botanical garden in Akureyri that's very beautiful as well. I'm not often up north, but when I am, I try to visit the garden as well, there are many plants there that don't grow in the garden in Reykjavík.
Here are some photos from the Reykjavík botanic garden:
A cubit about the challenges of gardening and living in Iceland. The climate, the plants that can be grown here, beautiful gardens, beautiful scenery, a bit of culture and history and daily life before and after the economic collapse.
