Siberian Squill

Wild blueberries started to bloom today and the summer cottage is now surrounded by butterflies, honeybees and bumblebees all having a feast.

It has been long time since I have seen this many of them and to me it appears that the populations have recovered.

Also the Siberian Squills (Scilla Siberica’) are blooming. Simply adore the blue color they have.

Monal

Still have few daffodils that have not opened. It has been a cooler period up here in the north which is good for daffodils. The ones that have started to bloom simply bloom longer when the weather is colder.

Monal (Narcissus’Monal’) started to open its flowers. The colors are bright and it sure stands up.

One more week to go and then I am able to spend a week in the summer cottage. Cannot wait for that.

Violet

There are so many different color options for Violets (Viola) but I think that I now have the ones selected for this summer.

I have been going to different shops and finding out the options for this season.

Will have most of them in pots in the summer cottage, now that the isolation of the capital area is over and it seems that we are able to travel again.

Still more than a week to go before I will have a long weekend to spend over there. Simply cannot wait time to pass.
