Yes, your garden is amazing! I saw some roses on one of the other threads and they looked so fresh and new, not a brown petal or a black spot. I need to come there for a summer trip!

Welcome Steve :-)

Well, the roses on that other thread were actually growing in Portland, Oregon ;-) Growing roses here is quite a challenge because of the lack of heat and the short summers ...... getting a bloom to open before frost is often the only objective! Hilarious!

Mid- to end of September .... it varies. Most often sometime after the 15th ..... frost in early September can happen though.

I think the roses thread was actualy in your other cubit. I couldn't read much of it though Sticking tongue out

Your last frost date is very similar to ours then, we just get to plant a few week earlier.

Hey Steven,
I can't read Icelandic either (is that what your language is called, rann?) but I can sure look at the pictures!

OK - then they were in Portland :-) Yes, it's Icelandic ....... we like to say it's the language the vikings spoke, but it has evolved some in the last thousand years ..... still it's the closest to it of the scandinavian languages.

I was in Norway once/twice on the way in and out of Russia. The time was April and the weather was so cooperative....we had a nice visit with mild weather, nice blonde people and very expensive food and drink. I did notice the stop lights beeped I think, to let blind people know when to cross the street.
Maybe my memory is bad?

I think some of the crosslights (pedestrian that is) beep here too ..... isn't that a universal thing?

NO, never saw uh, heard that before in my life and travels. Did see holes in certain coins in Greece for blind people to feel what coin they had.

We have traffic lights beeping too for the blind people, but not everywhere. And they have all kinds of signs on every merchindise for them, something they can touch. All money have the signs too.
