...is filled with fragrances of spring from violets, pansies, primroses( a blueviolet kind of primroses of course!)Balkan anemones, a bluelilac hyacinth, bluelilac'Corydalis', 'Brunnera macrophylla', grape hyacinths, 'Scilla siberica' and 'Puschkinia scilloides', all together in my English blue patterned chinabowl.
These first flowers of the year are maybe the prettiest, are'nt they?
And as the bluelilac hyacinth has too strong fragrance to be on our table, I put it in the mini watering can at my veranda together with other flowers and things there.
I change my blues to white...
Last days the temperatures getting warmer and in the Swedish forest you can see these lovely whites: wood anemones - 'Anemone nemorosa'.
In Sweden we have "The Right of Public Acess",("Allemansrätten") a right to visit forests and nature, but there are also some duties, as not throw garbage in the nature and not pick protected flowers and plants.
The wood anemones are not protected, as these...
...blue ones: hepaticas, which are protected in my part of Sweden, and You are not allowed to pick or cut flowers or dug plants of them.(You can buy cultivated plants of them in the plantshops.)
But it is free to enjoy them growing in the ground in springtime!
As the wood anemones are free to pick in the wild, I filled my hand with them, and took them back home to my Japanese cup.
The big white wood-anemones-look-a-like-flowers are species of a clematis, maybe not the best clematis for my climate, but in a pot now in spring and summer, and inside when the cold is coming back.
Its Monday again and a Blue one, and too feel the blues, go and visit Smiling Sally...
HAPPY BLUE MONDAY&
have a nice week!
