The back yard's been a pretty good show lately, even though there's a lotta yellow. with the chrisanthemum and this group a daylily. (photo taken 4 days ago)


Actually the front's putting up a decent show too, with daililies dominating (and providing a more varied array of colours.)

Here's another lily that made an appearance just before I left Toronto for Alberta. A starburst lily

Hey neighbor, it is so nice to remember what they look like. I have them at home but the deer never let me see them.

AWESOME Starburst Lily...Sheriff  :) I have never seen one growing in a flower bed in a person's yard. Hope you are having a WONDERFUL time with the other Brokies in Alberta  :)

         Good to see you made it back safe and sound.  Good to see the garden is still doing great, even in your absence.  Look forward to those photos from the trip...Welcome home friend.



     Beautiful mind

You learn somerthing new every day - I never knew that was how garlic grew... I guess I though it was a root of some sort.

Didi you have a great time in Alberta?
