Vernal Bloom Revisited.

We have entered the first summer month and yet it feels weather wise as if we have stepped into fall. What a difference a week can make - the end of May was hot and sunny, while now rain and grey skies with plummeting temperatures are our reality.

Still, officially summer arrives first in a few weeks, thus the hope for sunny skies, hot days and warm nights is nevertheless alive.
One thing we will be granted for sure - the culmination of white nights - as the countdown to summer solstice has already commenced.

Before it all truly begins,  I would love though to take you back to the past three months in pictures. Back to the time that is infinitely defined by bloom, awakenings and growth.
Discovering our garden in spring, I enjoyed watching the vernal bloom and marveled over its versatility in regards to the blossom period, the colours, the texture and consistency of the flowers and of course, the scent. I saw some familiar faces yet also made my acquaintance with some novel beauties, walking around our garden with camera in hand.

As always, so much treasure waits to be discovered just outside our doorstep - if we only look.

Love these shots - such gorgeous vibrant splashes of summer!

so true, here in England. Our fire is lit and my tall flowers have been blown flat by the wind which I hear whistling in the chimneys as I type!

Brian Miller said...

Sandy said...

Your garden is lovely Zuzana! Such beautiful flowers - hope it warms up for you soon. It's been cooler here too this week with dark gray clouds more suitable for fall or winter bringing rain. We're off to another RV Rally this weekend. This one is close to home just over into New Jersey near Atlantic City.

Beautiful flowers dear Zuzana, a bit of sunshine in my day too. Here it's dark and wet, we still hopr for better summer days, but here and there we can see some beautiful spots of spring.
Have a beautiful week-end. xoxo

The weather seems to be the same all over Europe, we are having rain and grey skies as well except for a day or two here and there. You have some lovely Spring flowers in your garden - how nice that you included dandelions and daisies - always such harbingers of Spring and not always appreciated as they should be.

Maggi said...

Thank you for those beautiful photos to remind us of what it was like a few weeks ago. Is is so cold and wet here at the moment.

Your flowers are beautiful. You are a gifted gardener.

I smile when you talk about yearning for hot sunny days. Here we're in the triple digits.

Have a great weekend.

Your post brightened up my dull day.
When will this rain go away?? lol

Dan said...

Dreadful weather for summer here in North Wales too Zuzana. I think we managed about a week of summer before it changed. It's been raining pretty much constantly all day today, and the wind is picking up. Your bright spring flowers are beautiful :o)

So here in Brazil too, we are in winter, which is used here not as many warm clothes, and this week has to rain all day. Then cooled a little, and blew a long weekend for those who like to enjoy a good sun on the beaches. The global climate must have gone crazy, we have most of the year a hot summer with little rain.

kisses, Sonia.

Your flowers are beautiful! We have so many pretty flowers and trees on campus. I wish I was there now to enjoy them all.

Thank you for your very kind comment.

Thanks for this fabulous reflection on the last three months in flowers, Zuzana. I love the way you stop and think. You remind me to do the same.

I went through here and found a very well structured blog, loved it, but missed a translator for easy reading in other languages​​. Not really fail to return here other times.

kisses

Hilary said...

Lovely, Z. Your garden is so colourful.. much like your life.

Angela Bell said...

Lovely photos. It is weird weather as Kath says the fire is lit and my tall flowers are also falling over! There has been a lot of flooding and very high winds too. Perhaps it will soon be warm again. lol Angela

Cottage Garden said...

Its the same here sadly. A weekend of very high winds and now flooding in some parts of the country. 'Flaming June' it isn't!

Your colourful spring collage is a feast for the eyes Zuzana!
