It was snowing yesterday. Not much but, enough to make it a bit slippery here and there. There still is some snow on the ground today but, tomorrow it’s going to rain and it will all be gone. Who knows when it will snow next time. I wish it will be for Christmas.
Tonight it was cold. Only + 3 degrees Celsius at 7 am. First thing in the morning I looked out the window to check how my three dahlias, two begonias and pelargonium/geranium are doing. They look fine. No frost on them. We have to, today, move them indoors, into the garage, for the winter. Little by little little we water them less and they will soon fade. All of them have been with us for years already. The white/red dahlia from 2006. The photos are from Wednesday last week. You may wonder what my husband is doing. Well, he is picking apples from the ground, sitting 😀
Yesterday we were at the autumn garden fair at Marketta park. Only 7 km from where we live. The last spring and autumn fairs have been beautiful sunny days. Yesterday it was raining. I think there was not as many stands and visitors as usually. Well, we arrived there right at the opening hour at 10 am so maybe there was more later during the day. I didn’t take as many photos as I usually do. It was hard with the umbrella in one hand and the camera in the other.
Aww, time flies. The last flower. For two weeks there was one or two new each day. Thumbs up there, next summer, will be many, many more.
None of us were able to remember when it rained last time. It really has been extremely hot week after week after week. Nothing like summers usually are. This week it has been raining in many parts of the country but, not here. Finally, yesterday it was raining. The short, about 30 minute, thunder & rain gave buckets of water. The nature so needed it. It stopped as quickly as it began and the sun was back and it was as warm again as it has been all summer. I feared the rain would destroy the tiger lilies but they are good 🙂
