I was looking up from my books “Flora In Color” to find out which kind of clover this is. I think it’s Zigzag Clover (Trifolium medium L.) or Red Clover (Trifolium pratense L.) Either way, I love these clover flowers because of how it changes from a bud to into full bloom and, of course, because of its colors.
I took some pictures yesterday but they were no good at all. The wind was too strong making the plants swaying too much. I went back today. Also today is windy but not as much as yesterday. I brought my tripod with me today but still it was pretty hard to get sharp enough pictures.
June has passed way too quickly. It’s 1st of July tomorrow. Wishing you all a wonderful July 🙂
Right before we, on Midsummer Day, left from our friends from their summer place I took these pictures. Old time favorites from my childhood. I have, I can’t remember for how many times, decided to buy of them. Unfortunately I forget the decision as often. Next time I drive past a garden shop I will stop and buy some. I just read online that they often grow in dry, sunny areas with poor soil. That’s perfect. Poor soil here 😉
At 10:45 pm about one hour before sunset here in the south of Finland.
Also this year our friends invited us to celebrate the Midsummer at their summer place. We had a great time. Thank you, dear friends, so much for having us 🙂
Today the summer solstice takes place. Here in the south of Finland the sunrise is at 3:54 am, sunset at 22:50. Dusk to dawn is 1:52 minutes.
I can’t resist posting yet another picture of my favorite cat in the neighborhood. My other post was in mid. November 2014. I now know where he lives. I saw him sunbathing on the terrace in the early spring. We seem to have the same schedule and the same paths as we often meet him in exactly the same place. He’s adorable.
