It is almost 9.30pm, and I just came in from a night walk in the garden. The Nordic summer nights are light, so there were no problems shooting photos without a flash. I love the light summer nights, though I must confess the dark night with lit candles we experience when we travel further south in Europe during our summer vacation is also lovely. But also our summer nights are usually quite cold, and it is no exception tonight. I have been working out in the garden for hours today, and it gets hot enough when you work, but a warm jacket was still good to have.
Terje is still busy digging in the herbgarden. Almost finished now though, and this back garden is so much nicer this year than what it was last year. I drem of a garden house in glass and stone to have here, may be in a couple of years the dream can come through.
Marta and I have bought plants for her special garden now, outside her playhouse, but have not had time to do much of the planting yet. If it is not raining too much tomorrow we'll do some planting then, and also put some sunflower seeds in pots. Marta usually loves to garden, but she hasn't had much time for it yet this summer, so this might be some extra work for me. I love to do it for her though.
I didn't see any trolls tonight either, but I know they are very happy now when the blue pearl flowers are in bloom . These blue pearl flowers are among my spring favorites, and I have then several places in the garden.
