Friday Bliss #193 - My May Garden


It feels that the summer has finally arrived! In the beginning of this week the weather was gorgeous with summer temperatures at about 22 C. On Thursday it began to rain and will continue still for two days. But rain is welcome, because it has been very dry. I’ll share some glimpses of my garden this week. Plums and cherries are in full bloom and they look wonderful. The garden has not yet fully grown, for examples the hostas are just showing and many shrubs don’t have leaves yet.




I don’t remember the variety os these pastel tulips, I chose them because they were on offer.
They look better in real life than on the photos.
Tulipa sylvestris are delicate and beautiful every spring!



I replanted this flower bed last summer, interesting to see how it looks later.
There are coming among others Lilium martagon.


This vigorous Clematis Constance is growing along our house ladders.
It is not yet in full bloom.



With the kittens we have fun every day.
They are trying to catch bees eagerly, silly them!





I read this week Oh William! by Elizabeth Strout and liked it very much.

We have got great news: My husband’s granddaughter Noora is having a baby 
in late November  ❤︎ DH will be a great granddad. Isn’t it great!

Happy Spring Weekend!
Linking also to Frühlingsglück of Loretta and Wolfgang.

    1. In Finland it is not recommended to let cats free near cities, because the traffic is dangerous. My kittens got used to the leashes in the winter inside the house - no problem now.

  7. Schön nochmal Kirschblüten zu sehen. Die eingerollten Spitzen des Farns kann man im Salat essen.
    Schön bald ein Baby zu begrüssen, Glückwunsch.

    Puutarhanne on kyllä niin rehevä ja kaunis. Hölmöt kissat kun yrittävät metsästää pörriäisiä, saa kyllä vahtia!!

    1. Tuntuu aivan hullulta, että J:sta tulee isoisoisä! Niin se aika rientää. Kissoille tärkeintä ulkoilussa on pörriäisten ja lintujen vahtaaminen. Joku taisi Selmaa pistää suupieleen. Vähän aikaa hieroskeli tassullaan, mutta ei ollut moksiskaan.

  17. Dear Riitta, you still have real spring in May. Summer had already broken out here with up to 30° Celsius. Now it's more like 22° and everyone thinks it's cold. I really like your garden pictures. Kind regards - Elke

    1. Thank you Elke. Finland is a northern country and this year the spring is late. Last summer was too hot and too dry. I wish this summer will be more moderate with mx temperatures of C 25!

  20. Liebe Riitta,
    es freut mich, dass der Sommer jetzt auch bei Dir angekommen ist und Du mir diese wundervollen Bilder aus Deinem Garten zeigst. Bei uns hat es auch wieder geregnet, aber es ist kälter geworden und fühlt sich nicht mehr nach Sommer an. Vorher war es teilweise allerdings schon viel zu warm.
    Ich wünsche Dir einen schönen Sonntag.

    Viele liebe Grüße
    Wolfgang
