Friday Bliss #197 - Midsummer Mix



It's summer, it's Midsummer and the gorgeous Nordic night.
Happiness and joy in people’s minds, because of
this fascinating magic of nightless night.

The Summer Solstice occured this year on Tuesday, the 21st of June. But today we celebrate in Finland Midsummer’s Eve and the nightless nightIn Lapland the sun does not set at all from June 15 till July 1. In Helsinki region the sun sets for only about 4 hours - so the night is short also here!

This Midsummer we are going to have splendid weather - up till 30 C and sunshine. It feels wonderful, as awckward it may seem the Midsummer weather is often cool and rainy in Finland. I’ll have family members visiting and we’ll have dinner on the terrace.

The whole week has been gorgeous, warm and sunny. Many perennials and rose shrubs are in bloom and I have done this and that in the garden. My Midsummer bouquet was made with peonies, aquilegias, hemerocallis etc.
  





Green was the silence, wet was the light, the month of June trembled like a butterfly.
- Pablo Neruda

Summertime is always the best of what might be.
- Charles Bowden









Wishing you a wonderful Midsummer weekend!

Friday Bliss #196 - Alliums & Pink Aquilegias


Alliums and aquilegias are blooming in the garden and in my simple bouquet. 
In addition I’ll share some garden views.




The sunny lime shrub is Berberis thunbergii 'Aureum’ which gets greener
later in the summer. 




Beside our garden pond I have hostas & alliums & this clematis tower.
There are also peonies, still in bud.
Behind pink rhododenron ’Haaga’ that suffered from the draught of last summer.



Wishing you all a Happy & Sunny Summer Weekend - Don’t Forget to Relax, too!

Poppies in Bottles


I have bought these three brown bottles in different sizes a while ago.
Now I put in them Polygonatum multiflorum & added with Papaver orientale ’Olympia’.
Both ways a nice & simple decoration.








Wishing Sunny Summer Days!

From Old Times


The topic of Makrotex is OLD TIMES.
I have a few rusty old items in the garden, including a Singer sewing machine
on top of which there is a planter. And this rusty thing is one of them.
This metal cover used to protect liquid for AIV silage.


Wikipedia: Artturi Ilmari Virtanen (1895 – 1973) was a Finnish chemist and recipient of the 1945 Nobel Prize in Chemistry "for his research and inventions in agricultural and nutrition chemistry, especially for his fodder preservation method”. He invented AIV silage which improved milk production and a method of preserving butter, the AIV salt, which led to increased Finnish butter exports.



This is a big iron cauldron which were used in saunas heating the water.
When grandkids were small we roasted sausages in it with an open fire.
Another hosts some plants.



Wishing Sunny Summer Days!
