Yellow Iris bloom in Sweetman’s Garden.
Recent blooms from Sweetman’s Garden.
Last night’s first official snowfall brought out the need to think of things that grow in warm places.
Places like my living room.
Pickerel Weed flower growing in the shallow marsh around the corner from the cottage.
The water lilies are beginning to appear.
Sweetman’s Garden once more.
Blooming in the Waterfront Gardens this morning.
African Violet + Macro Lens = Fun!
This summer’s crop has arrived.
Always elegant whenever they appear.
Birdsfoot trefoil grows in yellow abundance along the shoulders of our roads at this time of year.
The plant was used at one time as feed for livestock.
I think daisies are elegant in their simplicity.
This flower is also called “African Daisy” or “Cape Daisy”. Very colourful, and the yellow ones we bought at the nursery close up at night and reopen in full daylight. We also have some purple/blue ones that don’t do this so I guess it’s not a pattern of behaviour for all of these flowers.
I am a sucker for daisies and brown-eyed susans and so these guys are right up my alley.
Here’s a photograph of the purple/blue ones.
The tulips are blooming in Sweetman’s Garden.
