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.

They have promised few days of warm weather just before the Eastern. We should go above 10 degrees Celsius which is warm up here in the north for this time of the year.

Pansies (viola) arrived and bought one for my balcony. I would love to have more but during the summer it simply gets to hot to grow them.

Now waiting for the other flower varieties to arrive hoping for new colors and shapes.

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.

We have had few sunny days up here in the north. It is a bit early but could not resist buying few violas to the balcony even though we still have some snow on the ground.

This year winter came with plenty of snow and it has taken a while to melt. Good thing is that thick blanket of snow also acts as a cover and low temperatures do not harm the plants.

Less than month to go and the gardening season is here. Six long months we have waited but the reward is now nearly here.
