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!
