April

In the middle of April we had some warm and sunny days. But, for the last three weeks it has been cold. I really hope the forecast for next week will be, as it says, temperatures about 19-20 degrees Celsius. Here are some photos of spring flowers and birds taken in April.

Have a nice May and stay safe !

My Cat Jacky

Autumn at it’s best. Warm, sunny days. About 15-18 degrees. Blue skies. Here are some photos from the last few days. The dahlia ”Fire and Ice” is still in bloom. A yellow autumn hawkbit and the rose nip. Plus two photos of our cat Jacky. He is eating grass.

Globe Blue Thistle

About two weeks ago we were, once again, visiting my childhood friend. She has a huge flower garden. She has the flowers planted by color and so that there is flowers in bloom from early spring into late fall. This was the first time I was able to see the Globe Blue Thistle (Echinops Ritro) in bloom. The blooming is almost over. The flowers already fading in color, turning into light blue/gray. Luckily there were still a few rich in blue color. While I was busy photographing she had been busy digging up some plants she gave to me. Thank you so much dear friend. I have planted them and am so much looking forward to next spring and summer to see them blooming. Well, I hope they survive the winter.

Flowers

On the way back to the car last Saturday after taking photos of the Lamp Holder Men at the entrance of the Central Railway Station I shot snap shots of flowers in huge flower pots. The flowers in the jeans pots were outside a restaurant near where we had parked the car.

Tiger Lilies

The Tiger lilies are in bloom. First flower opened on Sunday. On Monday there were six. Soon they all will flower. The wonderful thing with Tiger lilies are that they flower for about two weeks. It depends on the weather. Less sun and warm weather they last for longer.
