Solbacka Serenity

Solbacka Serenity

Here’s to the start of my holidays, the newest shrub in the garden, Philadelphus ‘Belle Etoile’. Wish I could post the scent too!

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!

“July is dressed up and playing her tune…”

Tonight it really rains for the first time this season. I feels wonderful! Almost like a weight of desert had been lifted off my shoulders. Maybe something of the garden is salvageable besides the clematis that I’ve been watering religiously. Above, two plants I’ve grown from seeds, a Clematis flammula (white) and an open pollinated seedling from C. INSPIRATION ‘Zoin’. These starry whites really give a great contrast to everything else – almost like baby’s breath in the bouquets. 

Yearly attempts at crossing clematis with each other have begun again. I hope you will keep your fingers crossed that I’ll get at least a few seeds to play with during the long winter. Even just a dream of new beautiful plants keeps me going a long way. I hope I’ll be able to share a few new ones this month with you. They should start flowering for the first or second time ever. 🙂

The work load has been heavy but a wee bit more manageable since the official opening of the adventure golf at the end of May. Big decisions to be made now about the continuation as the deputy manager, who and how, perhaps me, but in which way? I hope tomorrow’s discussions will bring us a step closer to a resolution to those questions. It would allow me to go on holidays (in just a couple days now!) with a resemblance of peace of mind. 🙂

As always, you guys have been wonderful – supportive and friendly. You people make this venture into social media worth the while! Thank you to the usual, quite deliciously unusual suspects with fingers on their hearts, pushing those buttons. You are the bestest!

Welcome to the new followers. Hope you enjoy this plant craziness, these ditties and poetic postillas. 

💕

From the creators, I get positive energies and inspiration to create things for sharing with you. Thank you! You are the bestest!

The rebloggers and ever-working, most generous curators – you knit us all in a network that can have a real impact on lives. Thank you! You are the bestest!

Wishing you all the best July ever!

June is here, and the season is 2-3 weeks early where it was some weeks late a month ago. We have had but the sun, and heatwave for half of that time. Quite windy too at times.

One month without rain, and the garden is crisping up. If we don’t get some rain soon, you will get pics of dead and desiccated plants. I feel helpless – the water in my well is not enough for the whole garden… and I have no time to water it all. Keep your fingers crossed for me, please!

On a much more positive note, a week ago on Friday the 25th, the adventure golf I had the largest part in designing and building was officially opened. We had a short ceremony, I too, gave a speech, and we unveiled my landartwork, the sea dragon. It was the best thing to hear the positively surprised sounds from the audience when we did that.

If interested, you can take a look at Adventure golf’s own FB pages (that I have nothing to do with).

I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who follows me here. You are all so appreciated! The usual suspects are just amazingly tenacious at keeping me company daily. Love you all for it! And I whole-heartedly welcome all the new followers too – hope you’ll enjoy this company!

I keep learning so much from the inspirational creators of original content here, be it photographers, poets, designers, painters, musicians, fandoms, what have you. The amount of new work every day is staggering! You are all so amazing! Thank you for your work that pushes me to find new angles to mine!

We sometimes overlook the curators but it is throught their efforts that newcomers and casual browsers can find our work. It takes a lot of time and effort trying to find and sort the posts for their blogs. Your work is essential, my heart-felt thank yous to you! 

💕

It is so fun to receive comments on my posts. I get great pleasure from those and exchanging a few lines with their writers. Thank you so much for them, they make my day! And thank you for all the hearts you have showered upon me this past month, everyone! Thank you so much! 

💕

Wishing you all the bestest June with great positive energies and beauty to your everyday life.

All my 💕 right back at you,
