Floral Bliss #27

Rosa rugosa 'Belle Poitevine'
The best thing one can do when it's raining is to let it rain.
- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Rosa pimpinellifolia 'Ruskela' is blooming soon for the first time.
I have got it as a small root sprout.

In spite of rainy days, many plants are beginning to bloom:
in pink as roses, in blue as geraniums, in yellow as hemerocallis...

Paeonia lactiflora 'Edulis Superba'

Rainy days should be spent at home with a cup of tea and a good book.
- Bill Watterson

There's going to be a lot of reading this summer!

Probably Geranium x magnificum



Meconopsis gambrica - The Welsh poppy
Meconopsis betonicifolia - only two buds...
Tradescantia Andersoniana Group
I have these in many colors, this one had self seeded between pavement tiles...
Plantago media
The white Centaurea montana is not as aggressive as the blue one
Rosa rugosa 'Zwerg'

THE LINK IS OPEN 
FROM TUESDAY 4 PM TILL THE NEXT MONDAY 4 PM
Helsinki time

  2. Your raindrop-photos, dear Riitta, are so beautiful! Very nice!
    And the Meconopsis is a blue dream! I never saw a whtie Centauria, wonderful!
    Why don't you want to hear the name of your geranium??? I think it's growing in my garden, too.
    Regards

    1. I was not sure of the name Edith :) It probably is Geranium x magnificum? I know I have 'Rozanne' somewhere too... I have changed so many plants in plant exchange happenings that I'm quite lost! And also replanted them around the garden...

      The white Centurea montana is very beautiful, I have a light purple version too...

      Have a nice evening Edith!

    2. I think your geranium is 'magnificum'. It's not 'Rozanne'.

  6. Riitta,
    Flowers drizzled in the rain are beautiful.
    I am enthralled with blue poppies (Meconopsis betonicifolia).
    Unfortunately, I do not have it in my garden.
    Riitta, your photos are always perfect.
    Greetings.

  11. We've been having light rain showers again and the raindrops do add something extra special to a photo of a flower in bloom. It's pleasing to see plants that you've raised from young flower for the first time. Thank you for hosting Floral Bliss. Wishing you a good week.

  17. Your flowers are beautiful. Loving your white centaurea montana. I'm forever thinning out my blue ones!
    Your pond is so inviting with the pebbles leading us into the water. My frogs would love it.
    Raindrops bring out the best in flowers as well as giving them a much needed drink.

  22. Liebe Riitta,
    ganz wunderschöne Blütenbilder hast Du in Deinem Post eingestellt! Es ist eine Freude sie zu betrachten!

    Wie sieht es eigentliche bei Euch mit den bestäubenden Fluginsekten wie Bienen, Wildbienen, Hummeln und anderen aus? Müsst Ihr auch feststellen, dass sie wesentliche weniger werden? Fürchtet Ihr auch um die Bestäubung Eures Obstes, Eures Gemüses und Eurer Feldfrüchte?
    Für eine Antwort von Dir wäre ich auf meinem Blog unter diesem Post/ diesem Link
