I have been impatient for weeks, not to say months now. In garden blogs all over the northern hemisphere, bloggers have praised spring and the beginning of summer for a long time. Up here it is not long since I told you about the last snow.
Sometimes I say to myself; "Britt-Arnhild, you have to stop blogging. Seeing all the beautiful southern gardens only makes you depressed!"
But when the Nordic summer nights are here, I will not change with anybody. I am sitting at the diningroom table at 9.30pm writing this, with a low sun shining in through the window creating the image of an explotion of greens in every possible shade in the trees in the garden and in the wood outside. A deer just passed through my vegetable patch, leaving deep tracks which I will keep as a reminder of wildlife, the squirrel just left the bird feeder giving room for dozens of hungry birds. The tulips are ready to bloom, a bright pink elephant ear flower is playing hide and seek with me, the grass is blue with scillas and a sweet fragrance of mint is floating from the herb garden.
I just took a garden walk with my camera. Come along.
Photos: Pink flowers outside my kitchen window. My shadow in the herb garden. Blue spots everywhere in The Blue Garden. The Elephant Ear flower is playing hide and seek with me. Night shower finished, now ready for bed....but it is so difficult to sleep in this light. I am impatient to find flowerbuds in the peonies.
I post a new entry from The Blue Garden every day over in my garden blog. Welcome over.
