May Queen

Summer finally found its way to north. Past few days we have been enjoying 30 degrees Celsius temperatures.

The May Queen (Leucanthemum vulgare ‘May Queen’) finally started to bloom. Nearly a month later than usually.

Oxeye Daisy is a is a native flower to the area and therefore very easy to grow. Though the variety May Queen has been grown from a seed and has a bit bigger blooms.

May Queen

It has been dry up here in the north. We have not gotten a good rain for a month now.

Sitting in a summer cottage and watching a thunderstorm going past but not close enough for any rain.

You can see the dryness from the plants. Lack of water makes them smaller and better suitable for the dry weather.

The May Queens are doing well though. They are perfectly suited for long dry periods and seem to enjoy the weather.
