Lily

I was a bit disappointed in the spring because there were not that many lily bulbs for sale.

Then I found a way around the problem and started to buy ready planted pots from the stores.

I let them bloom in the balcony first and then take the pots to the summer cottage for planting. Hopefully I will have them blooming for many years.

Dianthus

Dianthuses are doing well this year and there are so many colors available in the stores. Nearly bought few more this morning but resisted the temptation.

Flowers are enjoying the heatwave that has been giving us over 30 degrees Celsius temperatures past few days. I have also managed to relax in the near by park sunbathing.

At this time of the year our nights are less than five hours long and it does not really get dark at all. Up here in the north we know that winter is never that far away and desperately try to enjoy the limited number of summer days we are going to get.
