Siberian Squill

It is a rainy day up here in the north. We have had cool weather for the past two weeks but tomorrow it should start warming up.

I am spending the week in the summer cottage and starting the planting season. Plenty of things to do and not much to see yet in the garden.

The winter seems to have been a good one for the plants and nearly all of them have survived. We went down to -30 degrees Celsius but that is not too much.

The Siberian Squills (Scilla Siberica) are at their best at the moment and are usually one of the first ones to start the blooming season. I just love the blue color they have in the blooms. It is so bright and strong.

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.
