For two years there was a field of sunflowers nearby us. I have missed them. So, when I saw this only, lonely one just down the road it made me smile. A super happy big smile. I love sunflowers 🙂
Last year and the year before and probably also the year before I said I would not take any more pictures of apple flowers because I have way too many photos of them. I have been photographing them every year since I bought my first digital camera in spring 2001. This time the apples blossomed for a very short time. Once again, I was not able to resist the temptation. I took some photos right before the blossom time was over. Guess what ! Yup, I’m sure there also next year will be photos of apple flowers 😉
Glad Valborg ! Hauskaa Vappua !
Here is a photo of a bouquet of Gerbera I bought in the middle of last week. I read on the net they can last for two weeks or longer without wilting if you prepare them properly. Which I did, so I think I will be able to enjoy them for quite a while still 🙂 That’s if they were fresh when I bought them 😉
I thought the Strawberry Candy lily wouldn’t bloom at all this summer. Usually first flowers flower in the last days of July. I was happy to, at about the end of July, finally see three stems grow taller day by day. On Friday 11th August the first flower was in bloom. Each stem has about 12-10 buds. I will be able to enjoy new flower(s) still for about one week. Nice.
