Arvonnan voittaja - Colours of Cornus 'Kesselringii'



Hei ja kaunista syksyistä maanantaita! Tänään olen arponut syyskuun lopussa ilmoitetun arvonnan voittajan.

Osallistujia oli siis 12 ja arpoja yhteensä 22. Lämmin kiitos teille, jotka osallistuitte arvontaan, siis Salli M, Teija, Sirkkuli, Henna, Minna, Rita A, Ruskarouva, Hippohiiri, anna s., Marja-Liisa, Jannna ja Hilda Hissu! Olisin halunnut lähettää teille kaikille palkinnon. Ihanaa syksyä - ja joulunodotusta, jos olette jouluihmisiä - teille kaikille! 🤗


Onnetar suosi arvonnassa Hennaa, jolle olen jo lähettänyt sähköpostia. 😊


Tämän postauksen kuvina on verikanukan (Cornus alba 'Kesselringii') syksyisiä lehtiä. Meillä oleva pensas ei ole vielä muodoltaan kovin komea, mutta lehtien värit syksyllä ovat aivan ihania.


In English: Hello all! In this post, I announce the winner of my small giveaway (see the previous post) and share with you photos of one of my favourite shrubs, the smashing Cornus alba ‘Kesselringii’ (White dogwood). It's shoots are deep purple-black and the leaves turn red and purple (and not only!) in autumn. :)


Halauksia. Hugs. Abbracci.

  2. Onnittelut arvonnan voittajalle! Kanukat ovat värihehkuisia ja tämä 'Kesselringii' onkin monivärinen. Meidän vanhat punakanukat ovat tänä vuonna saaneet todella tumman punaisen sävyn. Värikästä syksyn jatkoa!

  8. Love the color of those leaves which remind me a bit of my red twig dogwood (which has only dried leaves left). Enjoy your fall and all the changing colors.

  12. Beautiful fall colors. We have some shrub dogwoods (C. racemosa and C. stolonifera), but they don't compare for autumn foliage.

    1. Kiitos kommentistasi, Anu!
      Uskon että menestyisi hyvin. Myös meidän sijaintimme on nelos- ja viitosvyöhykkeiden rajalla ja verikanukka on pärjännyt ilman ongelmia. Korallikanukka on vielä kestävämpi, mutta sen syysvärit eivät ole yhtä monipuoliset. Mieluinen kasvupaikka on (puoli)varjoisa ja kosteahko.

  16. i am once again speechless dear Sarah

  17. Preciosas fotos seleccionadas de otoño Sara. Los colores son maravillosos.
    Los libros de la última entrada son muy lindos por sus dibujos y colores.
    Si te apetece leer algo divertido, busca Patricia Brent, solterona. Típico humor inglés.
    Buen miércoles.
    Un abrazo.

  18. Oi Sara, essas imagens das folhas estão lindas;
    Mas vou responder ao seu post do Natal;
    Gostei de conhecer o livro e o Natal finlandês, as imagens
    do livro são lindas;
    Agora que li sua citação de Francis Bacon; li muita coisa sobre esse autor.
    No Brasil ainda há muitos livros bons que não são traduzidos; mais
    leio muita coisa em alemão. ou tento pelo menos; lol.

    Obrigada pela sua visita lá na casa;
    Gosto muito de te visitar. a finlândia tem uma das
    naturezas mais belas do mundo; pelo menos para mim.
    PAZ E BEM.


    Hi Sara, these leaf images are beautiful;
    But I will respond to your Christmas post;
    I enjoyed meeting the book and Finnish Christmas, the pictures
    from the book are beautiful;
    Now that I have read your quote from Francis Bacon; I read a lot about this author.
    In Brazil there are still many good books that are not translated; more
    I read a lot in German. or I try at least; lol

    Thank you for your visit there at the house;
    I love to visit you. Finland has one of the
    most beautiful natures in the world; at least for me.
    PEACE AND GOOD.
