Thanks Kelda. Glad you're enjoying em

Found this little ol white tulip in the middle a nowhere. Wonder where it came from ...


Just discovered this wonderful thread. What a riot of colour,but even more amazing is the white tulip, never seen one before in my life.Stunning in its simplicity.

Well if you like what you've seen here, there's a very large thread called "My Great White North" that has hundreds of photos of last year's garden -2007 (I spent over 3 hours going through em last night!!!) The weather was hotter last year so in spite of my complaining (last year) everything's about 2 or 3 weeks behind schedule and, except for this year's rather successful tulip showing, I think last year will be more impressive than this year.

Suggest you start around page 15 - the first hundred posts (or more) delt with a nothern trip I had taken the previous (2006) summer.

Sorry about the lightness of my posting on this thread this year (seems there was a lot more to boast about last year).

I was away in mid April and again a couple a weeks ago (visiting an ailing mom) So I missed much of what little came up this year.

It's been cold ... lots colder than last year. The lupins shot up more than 10 flowers last year - this year only 3.

The yellow Iris (and for that matter, the light blue iris too) hardly showed at all.

The ornamental poppies (over 60 heads), the late blooming dark red (dr pepper smelling) and dark blues all managed to flower while I was gone to timmins two weeks ago - and as soon as I got back, it got cold and it rained a lot - hardly any sun  >:(

However, I took 6 picture this morning and I'll be posting them in the next few minutes.

Oh & did I mention, I also missed most of the peonies? They LOVE hot weather, not so much rain.

any who here goes ... the annual poppies - and thank goodness there are many double (multiple?) petal blooms this year. I got 3 in one picture (usually see just one or two all summer long ...) Also, in the picture, a single bloom poppy ...


multiple blooms are so much lovelier
