Rann, it is exactly this species of anamone.
When I think about summer I can't forget about irises, they are in bloom in late may and are the sign, that summer came. They are very popular in my country. A samle of my colection:
Rafal, your iris are absolutely beautiful!! Are you troubled with the iris borer? I am, and it's hard to keep them from ruining the iris tubers. I have to dig and divide to clean them up. I also use a systemic, which I hate to do now. Last year I saw bees on the iris. I never did before. I try so hard to not kill any bees.
Herbie, I'm so glad that knee and swelling are behind you!! And look how time flies. You went, and are back from Canada now, LOL!
my PT told me to wear the stocking again as the leg is still a bit swollen. we are going up to ma on friday for ava's birthday but the party is on saturday. then we go to ocean city maryland for a week.
Beautiful Souls like Frank leave lasting memories in the hearts of those he touched .
Herbie, it will be a good year before any of it is back to normal. I'm glad you have a lot of opportunities to use it. More walking, less stiffness.
Since iris are the subject, I did get my suprise iris dug and re-planted. It's funny. I must have gotten it at Mom's because it bloomed here and there at the same time. I do not remember it growing at her house. Ever. I have no idea where it came from, and since Mom is gone, I can't ask her. I call it Mom's Stiched since she liked to sew.
Our September has been cool. Too cool. I am not ready for it and it just feels uncomfortable on my face. It seems like such a small thing, given we will be down to zero and below one of these days, LOL!
I hung clothes last week and the tiny no-see-um midges almost drove me crazy. But when I went back out to the front yard and worked all day, not a one got me. Strange, but I was glad!
Herbie, they are horrible little specks of a bug with a huge bite. They can really pepper you and it's very very annoying, enough to drive you back in the house. Sprays don't keep them off of you either.
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.
