Garden Joys of the Week

The week has been sunny & hot and even hotter it will be!
There is so much happening in the garden, smaller and greater joys every day.
I gathered here some impressions and the plants that bring me the most joy at the moment.

Pimpinella roses are the first to bloom in Finland. 
This pale pink beauty is ’Ruskela’, 
a newly found traditional rose. It grows behind our wooden swing.

Another rose blooming right now is tall Norwegian Rose ’Hurdal’.
It is pink and very high and brings a forest feeling growing among thujas.
Photographing is a challenge, because of its height.

This guy is also a joy! Hubby has continued washing our pavements
with pressure washer. Still a bit to go. His garden outfit is not very elegant :DD

Blooming of Meconopsis betonicifolia is certainly a joy!
Last year there was no blooming as I had replanted it to a better place.
Now there are many buds!

Hope you find some cooling shadow, but let’s enjoy the summer!

  1. ...and hubby's job isn't elegant either!!!

  2. So beautiful...what a joy to have a look at, and I am sure it’s also joy for the nose to smell. Absolutly fantastic is your Meconopsis betonicifolia, wow...what a color and beauty. Never seen them before and thanks for introducing and sharing.

    I was laughing about Hubby and the outfit...that’s normal when you are working in the garden. You should see me and my outfit when I am outside in the garden *rofl*

    Saludos y abrazos


    1. Meconopsis has this special blue tone... Do I look elegant in the garden? Oh no, the same with me. Saludos y abrazos Nova.

  3. Your roses are beautiful. There is pleasure in looking up at them. I would love more climbing roses in our garden. Your hubby is a good companion and he's doing a useful task with the pressure washer. Enjoy Summer days in your garden Riitta.

    1. The summer is gorgeous right now! We are having guests on the terrace today. It is hot, we have to come inside to cool us a bit.

  4. Niin kaunista teillä! Eihän nyt puutarhahommissa voi olla kovin eleganttia asua :D

    1. Vitsinä kirjoitin :D Onpa helletä. Meille tulee Millan perhe lounaalle ja luulen, että paistumme.

  5. Vastaukset
    1. Muchas gracias Francisco, buen fin de semana..

  6. The blue poppy is so charming!
    Let's enjoy the hot weekend, Riitta!
    Today Somerniemen tori reopened. Hope we are back to normal life!

    1. Let’s hope for normal days! Btw Do you see often writer Kaari Utrio? I just listened her biography, it is great - but only in Finnish!

  7. Those roses are gorgeous!

  8. Das sieht ja alles klasse aus und wer schafft und und im Garten, da passt doch das Outfit.
    Habe einen schönen Abend. Liebe Grüße Eva

  9. Your garden is looking so colourful, the summer months can bring such beauty.

    Have a lovely weekend.

    All the best Jan

  10. Your roses look absolutely gorgeous - and so does Hubby ;-) wearing perfect dress for working in the garden.
    The last photo is so cool - and cooling.
    Regards, Lisbeth

  11. Dear Riitta!
    Your roses are beautiful. I am delighted with every variety. I can see our husbands love gardening.
    I am charmed by Meconopsis betonicifolia. I've been looking for her for a long time. Unfortunately, it is not available in my country.
    Happy, sunny new week:)

  12. the blue flower is a surprising joy for me - there are few blue flowers - and of course, roses are amazing

  13. Esa flor azul es preciosa. Mi marido se ve igual en el jardín. Besos.

  14. Stunning Roses, Meconopsis is a marvelous flower . Thanks for sharing with Garden Affair.

  15. What a stunning garden you have. The Mecanopsis is one of my favourite flowers, such an unusual shade of blue, but I have had no luck growing it in my garden unfortunately. The roses look fabulous.
