The flowers of the Guelder-rose. The big flashy ones on the edges are sterile and are there just to make pollinators come to it. The ones in the middle are the important ones, but they are still bud yet.
It´s been warm, but cloudy all day today and when we finished work the rain came. It poured down so har that it was difficult to see the road some times. But now the clouds slowly thinns out and the sun has shined a short while. But they have warned for thunderstorms so this is just a break before the storm hits I belive.
I got a mail yesterday from a good friend in Main, AliceMary. She sent me a link from the New York Times about swedish men and paternal leave. It was quite interesting so I thought I should share it with You all. Just klick on this link and You can all read it: http://www.nytimes.com/slideshow/2010/06/09/world/europe/10sweden-femalefactor-ss.htmlThe article is called "In Sweden, men can have it all". It´s more or less text to photographs.
Bulgarian geranium, Geranium macrorrhizum. A rather beautiful ground cover geranium, but the leafs smells awful when touched.
Tomorrow is a big day here in Sweden, our Crown princess is getting married with a man from the "common people" Well there´s not so many princes left in the world to be honest :-)´
I´m not a royalist in that way that I think they are really important or something like that, but I do think they gives us better PR than a president. What do You find most interesting? That the swedish president and his wife comes for a visit or that the king and queen from Sweden comes for a visit? There are fifteen president on the dozen to be honest.But kings and queens are rare :-)
Rhamonda myconi. A realtive to the African violet.
Cinnamon rose, Rosa majalis. This one will get three colors if I´m lucky. White, rose and red.Unfortunally it hasn´t gotten its name because of its scent, but because of the colors of the stems.
Well it´s time for a shower, a cup or two of tea and then out in to the internet world to meat all of You.
Have a great day now!
I bought this one as a Delphinium oxypetalum.
