Bye, Bye Floral Bliss!


It has come time to say good bye to Floral Bliss. I started my weekly link-up 
the 31st of May in 2016, at that time under the name Flower Wednesday - altogether 31 posts. 
As Floral Bliss there has now been 89 posts, in total 120. This is the last one.
There has been a few loyal participants nearly every week,
but I don’t want you to be obliged. So, I want to thank you all who have participated! 
This time has been fun - but there are so many link-ups around the world to choose from;
I also run out of plants and don’t want to repeat myself. 
Thank you for your company ❤︎ 
I’m sure we’ll meet at other sites. And Floral Passions is not going to disappear!
________________

Quiet, very quiet
the summer flows out of me,
here when I sit on the veranda
and the leaves are falling at their own pace.
In the end, there’s just a slowly moving fog 
and an overwhelming loneliness.
-Ilkka Pitkänen-


I have three big pots on the terrace stairs. In the early summer there were pansies, 
now chrysanthemums with lime Lysimachia mummularia. I love its lime color! 
This ground cover spends the winter planted into ground. Part shall stay there on the spot 
covering bushes etc., part shall be used again in summer plantings.
...
Minulla on terassin loivilla portailla kolme isoa ruukkua. Alkukesästä orvokkeja, 
nyt krysanteemeja limenvärisen suikeroalven kanssa. Oi että tykkään sen väristä! 
Talven suikeroalvet viettävät maahan istutettuina. Osa jää maanpeitteeksi niille sijoilleen, 
osa päätyy taas kesäkukkaruukkuihin.



Hiljaa, hyvin hiljaa
valuu kesä minusta pois,
tässä, kun istun verannalla
ja lehdet varisevat omia aikojaan.
Lopulta on vain verkkaan liikehtivä
sumu ja täyttyvä yksinäisyys.
-Ilkka Pitkänen-




The husband went shopping. I love the color he chose although 
I usually buy ball shaped autumn blooming variety.
...
Isäntä kävi ostoksilla. Tykkään kovasti hänen valitsemastaan väristä, 
joskin itse tapaan ostaa pallokrysaanteemeja isommissa ruukuissa.

  2. Liebe Riitta,
    es ist wirklich schade, dass es diesen wunderbaren Link nicht mehr geben wird. Wir haben sehr gerne teil genommen. Aber ich werde Deinen wunderbaren Blog besuchen.
    Die Chrysanthemen Pflanzen auf den Bildern sehen schön aus, besonderes wenn man noch so viele frische Knospen sieht. Ich kann mir sehr gut vorstellen, dass die Terrasse mit den Chrysanthemen Töpfen sehr schön aussieht. Die Farbe ist sehr aufmunternd.
    Liebe Grüße
    Loretta

    1. Hi Eda,
      I got rid of the cast, and am happy about it! Now it is excersise and excersise as much as the pain allows. In 3 months a lot of muscle mass and strength has disappeared. The doctor set me a target: in other three months I ought to walk as well as before the injury. Let's see!

    2. Dear Riitta,
      that sounds great! I wish you good luck with the exercises and hope you will achieve the set goal.
      Love
      Eda

  11. I've enjoyed reading your Floral Bliss posts and have participated in a very few. Your chrysanthemums are a beautiful colour, and the lime green really sets them off well. I'm glad to read in one comment that your cast is off. I wish you much success in gaining back your mobility and strength.

  17. I am not happy that this lovely flower corner of the world is closing. The flowers shown here were particularly lovely. And I have to say, you can NEVER repeat yourself in the world of plants. There is always a new way, some fresh lighting, a new feeling about a plant to photograph. That said, thank you so much. I have enjoyed each and every visit here and your exquisite photography.

  18. Hallo liebe Riitta,
    man merkt es jetzt schon deutlicher das der Herbst gekommen ist und viele Sommerblumen verblüht sind.
    Deine Chrysantheme hat eine wunderschöne Farbe. Ich hatte mir auch eine letzte Woche im Gartencenter gekauft, sie gefällt mir sehr.

    Liebe Grüße
    Biggi
