A year ago I replanted my Anemone hupehensis. That was maybe not a wise decision,
because at least during this dry first summer they did not thrive, blooming was poor.
Yesterday was a very windy day and I saw this little beauty shivering with cold.
She is sweet, but oh so lonely ❤︎
- I have been out in the garden, nearly all autumn jobs done! Feels so satisfying. Raking still to do, but later. I have to give credit to my husband: I supervised, it was mainly him who worked and digged ❤︎
- We emptied all summer planting pots and planted my seedlings.
- I had 3 great looking Physocarpus opulifolius ’Diabolo’ seedlings and 3 green versions of the plant. Diabolo self seeds eagerly and they are easy to find! I plant the seedlings in pots in good soil for the summer - easier to water. By the autumn they have grown big and strong enough to be planted in the garden. I love Diabolo’s color, even behind this lonely anemone you can notice one growing. I have many, and have donated a lot of seedlings to friends and family!
- My reading this week has been the Nobel winner Svetlana Aleksijevitš (Alexievich in English). We have just got a Finnish translation of this - Secondhand Time: The Last of the Soviets. Tough & interesting reading. I warmly recommend her documentary books. Earlier I have read her Voices of Chernobyl and The Unwomanly Face of War.
Would be lovely to hear - please, share your thoughts and photos!
