Snowboard

Snowboard

Daffodil Snowboard (Narcissussnowboard’) is starting to bloom.

It seems to be a very stern and steady variety. One I bought from a flower shop two weeks ago.

The color of the flowers is nice white and it will find its way to the summer cottage where I will replant it for the next spring.

Still have few daffodils that have not yet opened their flowers and I am waiting impatiently. Few weeks to go before the ones in the summer cottage are ready to start the season.

I have been trying to find different varieties of daffodils to my balcony.

Daffodil (Narcissus ‘strike’) was a new acquaintance to me and I ended up buying it.

Not quite sure though if it is going to make it up here in the north. Could not find the hardiness rating for it.

Well, anyway I am going to enjoy its blooms while I can and next spring I will know how well does it cope with the coldness.

Brilliant

The Brilliant (Sedum spectabile ‘Brilliant’) is blooming beautifully.

It is a new variety I bought this year and I like the color. The others I have are variations of darker pink.

Most of the other flowers are now gone and it makes the sedums stand out. The first frost came few days ago but does not yet affect hardy plants like sedums which are going to continue blooming several weeks from now.
