On the north side of the front yard there are three peonies plants: the Gay Parer, the yellow Japanese Peonie and this dark red peonie (right behind the very busy North West corner)

Took this rather busy poppies photo just before leaving TO (now 4 days ago) - for all you poppies fans.

I'll be back on the road tomorrow (back to TO) and I still have a few pics in the can.

This (previously called) Virginia Blue Bell started blossoming generously the morning that I left town last Wednesday.

Nicotinia(?) is one of the few annuals that we buy for the garden. They're very fragrant (especially in the evening) and this is the second year we plant 'em near the stoop in the front yard. Last year's nicotinias were white.

Ever wonder why it's called 'Ornamental' sage? Well here's the regular variety ... not as pretty, not as plentiful and a lot more leaves. (plant is in the Tomato/Herbs bed - back yard)

I'll be on the bus in about 5 hours (and arriving in the capital in about 17). One of the last picture I took before I left (nearly a week ago) was that of the Evening Primrore (previously refered to as English Primrose). There were just a bloom here and there when I left town ... expect there'll be blankets of the stuff by now.
