Lily

I was a bit disappointed in the spring because there were not that many lily bulbs for sale.

Then I found a way around the problem and started to buy ready planted pots from the stores.

I let them bloom in the balcony first and then take the pots to the summer cottage for planting. Hopefully I will have them blooming for many years.

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.

Orchid

Days are still short and nights long up here in the north. Few more months to go before you can actually plant something outside. Too dark to grow anything inside yet.

In my desperate need to have flowers in the flat I always end up buying orchids. Just to have something beautiful blooming.

Now back to planning what to grow next summer with a glass of nice vine.

Cyclamen

Time to wait and dream! Nothing much you can do in the garden during the next six months. The long wait for the spring has started.

What a perfect excuse to start buying flowers to home!

Picked up a cyclamen from the local grocery store while shopping for the weekend. Just to have something on the table to brighten the day.

Sadly never been good with the cyclamen. Usually only manage to keep them alive a short time inside and live too far up in the north to grow them outside. Pity, because it is such a beautiful flower.
