Every week, Diggin' It pokes around the Web to see what's growing on in flower beds and vegetable gardens in various parts of the globe. Today we mouse-click our way to Norway, Australia, Sweden, and India.

Britt-Arnhild Lindland lives in Trondheim, Norway, loves to cook, is a member of the Slow Food movement, and a supporter of Slower Life. She invites us into Britt-Arnhild Blue Garden to admire the first Blue Sister poppies to bloom, to enjoy the progression of spring bloom (it's fun to enjoy a second spring when you garden is already in summer), and to learn about her grandmother's "circle of lilacs," so much fun to play in when she was a child.

Britt-Arnhild is a very busy lady -- she also maintains several other blogs, including The Blue Cafe and House in the Woods.

In Australia, July is the middle of winter, Yesterday Today and Tomorrow in My Garden reminds us. Still, in January I'd love to have daffodils blooming, be able to pick even odd fruit from a tree, and plant cannas.  Titania gardens in a subtropical climate in the Currumbin Valley, the Aussie Gold Coast, where she maintains ornamental, vegetable, and wild gardens, as well as an orchard.
