‘Santa’ brought us this cute burlap bag of Hyacinths and Christmas roses (Helleborus niger). Today the hyacinths looked miserable so I cut them away. I could see there’s one more stem coming up. The Christmas roses still look so nice and there are still many more buds.
About 20 cm of snow
It was a beautiful evening yesterday. No wind, still warm, +15 C, sunshine. I usually make an about 30 min. evening walk with Canelo. This time I made it a bit longer. I stopped to take many more pictures than usually. The flowers against the wall of the container looked so pretty. I think they are either Brown Knapweed or Greater Knapweed.Then I stopped to shoot rowan berries. When I was about to go back home a guy took out a drone with a camera from his trunk. I asked him would it be OK for me to shoot a couple of pics. Yes, yes, he said, no problem. He turned the drone on. I got one picture when it was still on the ground ready to go. Then it took off. Swoooooosh ! It scared Canelo so he almost pulled me down. When I looked up the drone was hundreds of meters up in the sky. I stood there staring up until my neck became stiff. I turned around and saw the sun had just set. A couple of more pictures of the sunset and then we started to walk back home. It started to get dark. On the road I heard a car coming from behind. I stepped aside to let it pass. WHAT ! ? My husband ! He rolled down the window and said where have you been ? Why didn’t you answer the phone ? You have been away for two hours ! Have we been away that long ? I didn’t realize, time flew. Sorry ! I set the phone on silent during the language lesson and forgot to set it back. Really, he was worried enough to go look for me. I didn’t think he would 😉 And how many pictures did I take ? Oh my, 60 !
I wonder if I did something wrong or if it was the winter that killed the phlox I had in three different colour. Anyway, to my disappointment, they were gone in the spring. So I was very happy when, in the beginning of the summer, a friend said she had too many of this red phlox and asked if I would like to have some. Oh, yes please, of course. The thing is I have admired your beautiful phlox already for many years. I hope these ones will make it through the winter.
WOW ! I was thrilled in the morning to see five flowers in bloom. This is the first time there are more than two flowers in bloom on the same day. Of course it was a must take photos. So, if the number of flowers is five or less per day for the next days there will be no more pictures this summer 😉
