Peach Party

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.

Violet

Violet (viola)

Spring is finally here and spring flowers have started to arrive to the shops.

Bought my first violet (viola) today. It was a bit difficult to choose the color and ended up buying a classic white one. The scent it has is simply staggering.

It sure has been a strange start for the new decade. For the first time we did not have a winter. It was like having an autumn that lasted for five months. Up here in the north it really gets dark and miserable without the snow. I have no idea what a winter like this will do for the garden and the plants.

Luckily the days are now getting longer and we can finally start to enjoy life again.

Dahlia

Have planted several dahlias again this year but it will take months before they start to bloom.

When on a Sunday walk happened to notice a cute little dahlia decided to have one in my balcony.

Just loved the color and the small size of the plant. The problem I always face with the dahlias I buy is that they tend to stop blooming at some point.

This time decided to try to fertilize the pot well and see if that would solve the issue. Time will tell.
