A Walk in the Neighbourhood

My neighbourhood is eclectic: there are new houses & old houses,
wild gardens and also a few wonderfully planned and maintained gardens with a great
plant selection. I’ll share a few glimpses photographed during my daily walk.

This Syringa reticulata - Likusterinsyreeni is huge and so beautiful.
A gardener lives in this house and the plant choices are very professional!

Excellent plant choices in this house’s garden play beautifully with different foliage colours.
When I walk by I always admire their well maintained small garden.

These big planting boxes must have styrofoam inside, because
all plants have survived for many years our cold winters.

One neighbour has a long spruce hedge, always beautifully cut!

Rosa ’Splendens’ - Valamonruusu blooms abundantly right now. The name derives from 
the Swedish name Vallmoros = Poppy rose as the flowers look like an open red poppy.
This rose has no connection to the Orthodox Valamo Monastery in southern Finland!

Blooming goutweed and fireweed are also beautiful - but please not in my garden!

  10. Onpa teidän naapurustossa kaunista.
    Jos varastaisin otsikkosi, näkymät olisivat hieman toisenlaiset.
