The strangest thing happened this morning as I was reading through and approving all comments made on my blog yesterday. Suddenly the page sort of jumped and all comments were gone??!! All but Aussimade´s and I think that was because I hadn´t read that one yet. I can´t find the lost ones and I´m so sorry about that! My new computor and I aren´t compatable at all :-) But I don´t think I had anything to do with this. I wasn´t even touching the computor at the moment. So now I´ve removed that I have to approving comments, doing so I hope that all comments won´t be erased again.
Can You see them? the flowerbuds on my grape wine? Click on the photo to make it bigger. This is the most hardy species of grape wine there is, the Wild river or Frost grape (Vitis riparia). It´s been recorded to survive after temperatures dropped to -54C (-65F). It might be that it flowers to late here to get grapes that ripes, otherwise I have no idea whay it isn´t possible to buy here. I bought seeds from Gardens North eight years ago, now it will flower for the first time and I´m happy :-) :-)
It´s been a cool and somewhat cloudy morning. Perfect weather to take the morning walk in. Mosquitoes and flies are so much calmer then. Summer mornings this much north usually are rather cool. The temperature seldom reaches over 15C (59F). Well that does depend on what time You call morning of course :-) I´m talking about the time from 4:30 am till around 8am. We seldome has what we call tropical nights here, that is when temperatures doesn´t drop below 20C (68F). That happens perhaps once in ten years and I´ve never liked them especially much. It´s impossible to sleep then since most of us up here doesn´t have aircondition.
Summer is here and now the prime time for my woodland is over. Most of my photo´s of flowers so far has come from that part of my garden, like trillium, anemone, primulas and so on. But now those flowers will spread their seeds and wilt down. I´m not even weeding out there more than one more time this year. If I do that too often I also risk of getting rid of small seedlings that I want too keep. But I think I´ll have enough with other flowers to show You for the rest of the summer :-) It looks as if this will be a good year for irises if nothing else will work :-)
Buttercup, Ranunculis acris. This is how it looks in the wild. This buttercup deosn´t spread as enormous as the cousine R.repens.
This is a garden variety called 'Citrina'.
I have no idea what this is, but it grows on the most dry spot there is.
I have already had two cups of tea but I think there´s room for one more :-) This is a day made for relaxing and that´s what I´m going to do :-)
Have a great day now, I will!
