Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day / Trädgårdsbloggarnas dag


Den 15:de varje månad är det trädgårdsbloggarnas dag hos
May Dreams Gardens där Carol är värdinna. Vill du vara med så skriver du ett inlägg och berättar vad som blommar i din trädgård just nu och skriver en kommentar på Carols sida. Läs kommentarerna där så får du en trädgårdstur runt om i världen!

Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day is kindly hosted by Carol at May Dreams gardens. The 15th of each month, garden bloggers around the world write a post about what's blooming in their gardens. Please visit Carol's blog and read the comments for a gardening tour around the world!

Min trädgård är ganska frodig just nu på grund av allt regn vi har fått under de senaste veckorna. Flera rosenbuskar blommar fortfarande - bland dem Therese Bugnet (som har fått besök av en skalbagge) och Lyda Rose:

My garden is quite luscious right now, due to the rains we've had lately. Several rose shrubs are still blooming - among them are Therese Bugnet (visited by a Beetle) and Lyda Rose:

Några nävor är också fina nu; Geranium albanum, Pyreneisk näva och Ängsnäva 'Splish Splash' bland andra. Detta är Geranium Broookside och Mongolisk näva:

Some of the hardy geraniums are also looking nice; Geranium albanum, Geranium pyrenaicum and Geranium pratense 'Splixh Splash are among them. This is Geranium 'Brookside' and Geranium wlassovianum:

Frilandshibiskusen 'Russian Violet' började blomma för en vecka sedan. Jag älskar färgen på den här blomman! Blommorna är rosa som nyutslagna och förvandlas långsamt mot lila:

Hibiscus syriacus 'Russian Violet' started to bloom a week ago. I just love the colour of this one! The flowers are pink when they are new and they slowly change into violet:


Höstanemonerna och de Silvriga höstanemonerna är som allra vackrast just nu. Detta är Silvrig höstanemon (den härdigaste höstanemonen):

Anemone hupehensis and Anemone tomentosa are at their best right now. The delicate flowers are so very beautiful! This is Anemone tomentosa (the hardiest one):


En annan planta som har utsökta blommor är klematis Stans. De pyttesmå, blåa blommorna är helt ljuvliga - men man måste studera dem på nära håll för att riktigt se hur söta de är!

Another plant with delicate flowers is Clematis Stans. The tiny, blue, bellshaped flowers are absolutely gorgeous - but you have to be very close and study them in detail to really notice their beauty!


Kronklematis 'Georg' är en annan favorit - jag tycker både om färgen och formen:

Clematis macropetala
'Georg' is another favourite - I like both the colour and the shape of this one:


De variegerade höstfloxarna 'Harlequin' och 'Rubymine' blommar nu med underbara blommor och dekorativt bladverk. Dubbel glädje!

Phlox paniculata variegata 'Harlequin' and 'Rubymine' are blooming with gorgeous flowers and decorative foliage. Double joy!




Den mörkröda kärleksörten 'Purple Emperor' är så vacker med sina rosa blommor som kontrasterar mot det mörka bladverket:

The red Sedum telephium 'Purple Emperor' looks very nice with pink flowers contrasting against the deep, red foliage.


Den lite lägre kärleksörten 'Brilliant' är också söt med sina rosa blommor och gröna blad:

The somewhat shorter variety Sedum spectabile 'Brilliant' is also pretty with pink flowers and green foliage:


Alunroten 'Silver Scrolls' har de vackraste blommorna av alla mina alunrötter. Även om de rosa blommorna är små, så är de så söta:

Heuchera 'Silver Scrolls' have the nicest flowers of all my heucheras. Even if the pink flowers are tiny, they are very beautiful:



Mina stockrosor blommar fortfarande i flera olika färger:

My Hollyhocks (Altháea rugosa) are still blooming in various colours:





Några andra plantor som blommar är: / Some other plants in bloom are:

Sálvia nemorosa
Thalictrum delavayi
Cymbalaria pallida
Lysimáchia punctáta
Fuchsia magellanica

Men det finns en växt till som överraskande nog blommar nu igen ...men den sparar jag till nästa vecka...

But there is another plant which surprisingly enough is blooming again...but I'll save that one for next week...

Katarina you have a great selection of interesting flowering plants. They are all so very beautiful. The photos are so clear, I love them all but the soft pink Hollyhock with the darker eye has caught my special attention. I have seen the Heuchera in my sisters garden in Switzerland and I loved the little bells, the leaves are very attractive too. But, it won't do well in my climate.

Katarina, Everything looks lovely and I am especially intrigued by the clematis stans and georg! Very different flower form then I have seen before. The variegated phlox is a double treat...leaf and flower are good looking! Thank you for showing me your garden,
Gail

Hollyhocks are lovely, aren't they? Mine came to my garden mysteriously last year, I've no idea how they got there. Your yellow ones look just like mine.
Your heuchera are lovely, and I like the woman's face keeping watch over them.

Hi Katarina,
The colour of the hibiscus is really beautiful! The Lyda Rose looks very delicate and pretty too!Thank you for adding Terra farmer to your bloglist! Your garden is delightful!!

Yolanda Elizabet sa...

How lovely all your blooms look. I like that clematis Stans very much and, like you, I am aso very fond of the pink flowering heuchera's.

It's fun to see hollyhocks flowering all over the world, well almost everywhere.

Happy GBBD!

Min trädgård har kommit lite ur spår så att säga. Mycket som borde blomma nu är sent. Kanske är det värmen och torkan som stört ordningen? Vackra bilder som vanligt!

Its so nice to see a green and luscious garden like yours, specially now that everything looks so dry in mine. Love the yellow hollyhocks, never seen them before (hollyhocks do very well in my climate...have to try and find me some)

Katarina - Your garden is looking lovely. I particularly admire your Hibiscus and the Clematis Stans is enchanting.
Warm regards

Så mycket som blommar hos dig Katarina! Du är ju en riktig romantiker som har så superromantiska blommor. En riktig prinsesseträdgård.
Stockrosor får alltid rost hos mig så det är kört med dem hos mig.

mvh, Anja

Carol sa...

I have a variegated Phlox but mine is called 'Creme de Menthe'. It is just a wisp of leaves and a tiny bloom this year, so I hope it makes it until next year!

Thanks for joining in for bloom day. Your garden does look lush and very beautiful right now.

Carol, May Dreams Gardens

Very lovely flower pictures, Katarina.
As you can see I am back home in Canada..the weather made us leave Sweden:)
Skunks? I don't mind having them around. We respect each other and there is enough space for all of us in our garden. Skunks feed on insects and "SNAILS" and I consider them quite useful.
-Cheers.

I'm waiting on some hibiscus to bloom and will be REALLY happy if they end up looking anything like yours. I also love that pale yellow color of your hollyhocks.

Gillar stockrosor, fin bild på klematis Stans (vitt är så svårt).

shirl sa...

Hi there Katarina :-)

I enjoyed seeing all your blooms and my vote for favourite goes to Clematis Stans! I like your heuchera too - I am a fan of them also. Great selection :-D

Mr. McGregor's Daughter sa...

Those little Clematis blooms are so charming! I've got to try some of them. Your variegated Phlox are wonderful, especially Rubymine. It would be beautiful even when not in flower. I how the foliage of the Heuchera 'Silver Scrolls' picks up the color of the foliage of Sedum 'Purple Emperor.'
