Artic Fire

I sowed the Artic Fires (Dianthus deltoides ‘Arctic Fire’) last year and they are finally blooming.

It will be interesting to see weather they make it through the winter because the sports I moved them to is a bit challenging when it comes to overwintering.

For the safety’s sake I sowed some more for the coming spring. Just to be on the safe side.

Peach Party

Took a long walk with my friends to day and visited several flower shops when walking by. Not much more you can do since we have the lockdown. Sincerely hope that we are able to save as many lives as possible. We can worry about the economy later.

Not exactly how I planned to spend my birthday but cannot complain. The weather is beautiful and company good.

In one of the shops noticed this dianthus (Dianthus caryophyllusPeach Party’) and fell in love. Now it is in the balcony which is getting very crowded.

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.
