Then listen up, because autumn can be just as loud as any season—if not noisier. The bumblebees are especially diligent, but the frenzy from all pollinators hits a higher pitch. In my garden, all sorts of pollinators go bananas over the sedums and asters, and the garden is heavily stocked with those late-season performers specifically for the insects. Here the meadow beside the goat pasture is billowing with goodies for pollinators in autumn.
From The Garden in Every Sense and Season by Tovah Martin with photographs by Kindra Clineff.
“If I was to describe my experience serving at the Bahai Gardens in one word it would be diversity. I’ve been able to interact with such a wide range of people from the tourists that visit the Gardens, the Pilgrims, and friends I'm serving alongside that come from all parts of the world. Bahá'u'lláh describes us to be the ‘fruits of one tree, the leaves of one branch, the flowers of one garden’. These were words I learned as a child and after having experienced the beauty that exists in diversity they have now become a part of me.”
Back to the #northern#capital of Iceland, #Akureyri#City . After a magnificent bath at #Mývatn#Nature#Baths. just a few walk arounds before I catch up a domestic plane back to Reykjavik city.
Akureyri has a robust cultural scene, with several bars and reputable restaurants (such as Greifinn , Bautinn , RUB 23 Steak/Sushi , "Kung Fu sushi bar" and "Götubarinn"). The Icelandic folk dance ensemble "Vefarinn" comes from Akureyri. Folk culture in general is more prevalent in Akureyri than in Reykjavík.
Sites that have been cited as areas of interest include various #museums , #churches , and the #Botanical#Gardens. Local museums .The most northerly 18 hole golf course in the world is in the town. The Náttúrufræðistofnun Norðurlands (Nature Museum) was opened in 1957 and is in the grounds of the Akureyri Botanical Garden. The Botanical Gardens ( #Lystigarður#Akureyrar ) are located in #Spítalavegur. Large churches include the #Akureyrarkirkja (The church of Akureyri) and #Glerárkirkja (The church of Glerá). Sundlaug Akureyrar is a swimming pool in Akureyri.
New residential and commercial growth has required an extension of electricity and water distribution as well as new water drilling. Much of the town is heated geothermally.
Akureyri is the second most populous #town in Iceland after the Reykjavik Capital Area in the south.
There is a contiguous open area around Akureyri where the biosphere and #landscape are extremely #diverse , and #vegetation in many places is especially lush .
Наш участок расположен на небольшом склоне. На расстоянии 200 метров за участком протекает ручей. Раньше в этом месте финнами, была вырыта система дренажных канав, которая отводила воду в этот ручей (ранее реку, по которой форель из Ладоги поднималась в сеть лесных озер по близости, на нерест). Сейчас это все пришло в упадок. Дренаж не функционирует. Поэтому в задней части нашего участка скапливалось в дождливое время много воды. Долго думали поднимать или делать дренаж. Выбор пал на последнее. Итак, вооружились лопатами, ломом и стали копать. В общей сложности мы вырыли 90 метров. Сейчас над частью дренажа, располагается огород. При сооружении дренажа на дно траншеи уложили геотекстиль (ушло 1,5 рулона, примерно 4 000 руб), далее засыпали гранитным щебнем, фракции 20х40 (7 кубов - 8 000 руб). Кстати о щебне, выбирали между щебнем и современным материалом 21 века Тогдалием 😂😂😂, о нем расскажем завтра. Уложили перфорированную дренажную трубу, диаметром 60 мм (100 метров - 6 800 руб), сверху трубу опять засыпали щебнем. Помня, что нужно сделать уклон. Затем, установили дренажные колодцы (лайфках по колодцам будет позже - затрачена 1000 руб.) В дренажный колодец установили дренажный насос - 1500 руб. Завернули края геотекстиля и засыпали грунтом. Дренаж отлично функционирует, больше проблемы с избытком воды - не испытываем. 😊 #дренаж#дренажучастка#дренажныеработы#сад#любимыйсад#садмечты#garden#gardening#gardens#gardenlifestyle#gardener#самисусами#самисруками#дача#дачавлесу

🌵Want to know the absolute best thing about succulents? It’s that succulent care is shockingly simple and requires almost zero work or time!
🌵Basically, you just need to put your succulents in a spot that mirrors their natural arid, desert environment. So pick a room with a decent amount of sunlight and a little bit of heat. Then just water them once a week and let them do their thing!
🌵But wait… It gets even better. You can expect your indoor succulents to live for several months, if not years. They are also extremely durable and resistant to annoying little pests.
