Welcome - Friday Bliss #3


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 ❤︎





MY WEEK

  1. 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  ❤︎
  2. We emptied all summer planting pots and planted my seedlings.
  3. 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!
  4. 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.


What have you been up to this week?
Would be lovely to hear - please, share your thoughts and photos!

  2. Hello Riitta,
    This week has been a busy one at work (I'm a teacher). I've done a little bit of garden cleanup, getting ready for the dormant season. My reading has included The Unbearable Lightness of Being by Milan Kundera, and a mystery by Susie Steiner. I've also made some soups!
    Your lonely anemone is very pretty, shivering in the autumn weather. I've not had much luck with anemones, but I purchased some bulbs to plant and try again. Someone advised me to soak the bulbs for a day or two before planting them.
    Thank you for hosting Friday Bliss. I'll return to read when there are more links.

    1. Thank you Lorrie for joining. I have read that Kundera’s excellent book and also seen the film. Susie Steiner is a new name for me. My life is pretty quiet at the moment, restricted by four walls :) Getting better every day. Wishing you a lovely weekend.

  6. La anémona es preciosa, me encanta. Yo estuve limpiando un poquito el jardín, todavía hace bastante calor.Me comentaste que estas pensando en Bilbao o Valencia para visitar, las dos son preciosas... pero por qué no piensas en Cáceres, marzo, abril o mayo seria ideal y aquí tienes una buena guía ( creo que te encantaría ) Besos.
