Flowers of early June

The weather has been almost incredibly windy in the last weeks and it has been difficult to take photos of the ever-moving plants and flowers! Above: Malus 'Makamik' in one of the serene moments.

Not far from the crabapple, there are some Spiraea plants, now blooming:

My mother cut some branches for the home. I had never noticed how pretty the small flowers are, seen from the downside!

There are beautiful wildflowers as well...

Another photo of the 'Makamik':

Many plants are finally blooming:

Osteospermum ecklonis

An Angel cultivar. It was labelled Pelargonium grandiflorum (?).

Tulipa 'Shirley'

Tulipa 'Angélique'

Participating in Mosaic Monday

Participating also in...
Laura's I Heart Macro

There are many lovely link parties I usually participate in,
but in these days/weeks cannot.
It wouldn't be fair because in these days I just don't have time to visit the other participants.

Thank you for your visit!

Have a lovely new week!

  6. What a wonderful garden! White and delicate pink are so lovely together. And your tulips are stunning.
    All my best and happy gardening

  7. Gorgeous blooms! The shot from the back looks like the petals are on little stars.

  8. I am pleased that you have blooms on your new 'Makamik', they're a nice deep pink. That's one thing I never think to do - turn something over and take a photo of the backside like you did with spirea. Beauty from both views isn't there!
    The tulip Angelique has a romantic look, pretty colour and your awesome photo of the three blooms together.
    Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday Sara.
