Are these potted? You've hidden it well if they are.

Yes they are in a pot standing by the pond. I think you can just see they are yellow when the flowers first appear

Definately Leucanthemum, I have found Broadway lights to start yellow and fade to cream or white as they mature. Spritzhenry has broadway lights, she might know if these are them. Seems they aren't normally fading to all white like this. But its a step forward. :-)

Just seen a pic thats what they are. thanks for that Green thumb I can label my pic now. What you doing in Alaska if you like gardening? you should take up ice sculpting flowers instead it so cold there if you you made them in the winter would they last all summer? Oh I hate the cold and the heat I like rainy, windy, misty, damp, miserabl Uk!

Its a long cold winter, but still beautiful, I love the stillness. Indoor gardening takes off the edge, I've a little jungle. But summer is a wildfire of growth and green. So many wild things here that people are just aching to cultivate in their gardens. The raw nature is what keeps me, and the independant nature of the people who choose it. UK does sound like a magic land for that, Drc. I just can't take the damp chill to it.

No the dampness gets to us. I have just been looking at your picture of Camel Hill - beauty on a grand scale hard to believe you are in winter now when we share the same summer time. Have you seen changes in your winters due to global warming?

It is fall now but we've already had an early frost. The hill is where I lived when I moved here. There are more floods and the permafrost is receding. Some glaciers that were there when I moved here just ten years ago are nearly gone. There is a village that has always been on the coast had to be moved since the permafrost was gone and it was falling into the ocean, not white village, old native village that has been there a long long time. We are seeing alot of change here. Even fall now is a little strange. Two years ago we were already under the first snow. If any change, the winters are more volatile, never know what it'll be like tomorrow.

My brother went too Norway when he was 17 and something kept him there I have not seen him since that was 1972. In those days - no internet etc one just lost touch. I think he wanted a new life even at that age and I have never felt the need to intrude by trying to find him. So I kinda understand.

I like to stay connected, but I could say that a new life in an exotic unfamiliar place was part of the draw for me.

So many dream of that so few do it. I do hope you realised I meant to say ' So I kinda understand him' I have been looking up Alaska its not that different in some respects but a world of difference in others.

I understood. :-) Alaska has a nowhere else kind of style that really drew me, the mixture of russian and native cultures still rich and the environment and american influence altering it all to some kind of commonalilty. I find it all intoxicating.

I always wanted to see Russia - Siberia fascinates me. Mixing an old and relatively new culture must make for interesting new traditions with a lot of european influence too I would guess? Herein the in south part of England we are so crowded now that a lot of our old ways have been pushed out. Just too small an area to keep the two going I suppose.
