Okay - I'm a little behind on this post since this is a holiday weekend here in Canada - the first long weekend of the summer season - Victoria Day!!
I will get right to what's blooming since this is a pretty photo heavy post...you will get a glimpse in to many parts of my backyard today as well...so here we go!
Here's a planter I put together myself with some wave Petunias, Coleus and planted in the center are some Morning Glory seeds, that once grown, will climb up those bamboo stakes. I have a hanging pot of strawberries in this photo as well.
These are some Lillies of the Valley that are blooming in a shady spot of the backyard.
Here is the Solomon's Seal, along with the Trilliums that are still going strong.
They have a white pod flower that hang underneath.
Here's a glimpse of the side garden along the fence. Hostas and some Creeping Jenny.
The garden by the shed includes a red Maple and many varieties of Hostas.
Here's a glimpse of the yard taken from the opposite side of the yard. This area use to be home to our pool.
In the front side garden, the dwarf yellow Irises are in bloom and enjoying their sunny spot.
As you enter our backyard you are greeted by this vista.
In this garden the Forget Me Nots are in bloom.
Here's another little pot I put together myself using variegated Geranium, white Petunias and this lovely purple flower that I can never remember the name of. I believe it is in the Daisy family.
McG and I have spent most of this past weekend outside in the yard; working hard and visiting with some family and friends. It was a great way to kick off the summer season!
Join us again next weekend, when I'll be posting more from the garden!
