Gift of flowers and more First this and that!

This week I was extremely lucky, a Facebook friend of mine, Anita Eriksson in Skutskär, asked me if I wish to have some of her plants!
They are building a new patio outside her apartment where she have big flower beds and she need to downsize. I went to her on my way to our summer cottage and picked up the plants.
Here they are back at my home, and I'm SO happy for them, a white Iris, a couple of different Day Lillies, a Agapanthus and a lot of other plants!
Thank You Anita :D

There is a LOT of firsts lately in my new garden, here is a few:
First Potatoes
First flowers on the Agapanthus from Lövstabruks Trädgårdsmästeri, unusual for the 1st year
First Cucumber flowers on a plant I got from Evy
First Fragant Tobacco Flower & First Black Currant
This "Pink Gallery" Lupin are now having a total of 10 flowers, amazing.
Today the First Hollyhock/Stockros "Alba" started to bloom
First Beetroot
First Flower on the Agapanthus from Anita & First Phlox

There is also a few First Insects in my garden:

In a corner in my inner garden do I have this solid Brass sculpture I dragged home from Cochin-India, He's watching out for that part of the garden
I got more stuff for my garden at the local summer auction today, antique Swedish Jam pots and a a heavy 50 litre wooden box with handmade Iron mounting for my potted Hellekis Manor Walnut tree

The south barn wall towards the entrance start to shape up. Growing more quickly by the day is; Sun Flowers/Solrosor, Tobacco Flowers/Tobaksblommor, Summer Dahlias, Marigolds/Ringblommor, Mulleins/Kungsljus and Tagethes
On the other part do I have Tomatoes, Paprika, Chili & Pelargoniums

That's all for today, and I end with a photo of my new Jubilee Fuchsia thats just growing and growing
Have a great week, Per!
