Hi Everyone!

I have a blog posted entitled "Joy of Gardening" and have had requests to post some pics, but it's much easier to post them here because I don't have to wait to see them posted.

Hope you enjoy!

Spring has finally arrived and this is my favourite time of the year! Just love the freshness, the bright lime green colour of trees coming into bloom. Here's a picture of my Kwanzan Japanese Cherry, so pretty and delicate, but unfortunately the blooms don't last long, but I did enjoy them!

This is a shot just outside my kitchen, you can see how much snow has fallen by the peaks on the planters. Had to dig my dog a path as he's got short little legs lol!

Haven't added any garden pictures for ages, so here are a few from Winter '07. We had one of the worst winters in 50 years this past winter both for snowfall, gray skies and cold. Looking at these shots though, they are beautiful!

Triple S
Your white pond orchid is beautiful. I am an avid pond gardener. Do you ever sell bulbs from your plants? Do you have the scientific or common name for this particular orchid?

This is a shot after a substantial snow storm from my kitchen looking out on the deck. We received about 1 ft. in 24 hours and have to dig a pathway or my dog gets lost!

Just downloaded pics of my garden Mar. 5'07 and found some from last year. This is silverleaf vine, a very fast growing, twice a year blooming, vine. Hope you enjoy!

Just wanted to post a little Christmas cheer with this amazing Double Record amaryllis. I gave it to everyone on the blogs for Christmas, so thought I'd share it with the forumites too!

It blooms 6-8 weeks and I've always treated myself to a beautiful amaryllis each Christmas.

Merry Christmas Everyone! Hope 2007 is good to you all!

Hello ready,

I was raking leaves last weekend (I have half an acre surrounded by oaks and pines) and was surprised to see two of my azalea bushes had flowers on them one pink and another white at different parts of the garden. Can you explain why these two bushes would have started to bloom at this time of year?

Re:





Hey Jacobite!

Don't know for sure, but some things do bloom a 2nd time late in the season. We had an unusually warm fall and I still had some roses blooming until the last few days. My brother has an amazing white iris that blooms beautifully for a 2nd time every fall, at Thanksgiving in October it was full of blooms. He transplanted these irises from his home to his cottage because they always bloom late.

All I know is I sure would enjoy them while they're blooming! It will be quite a while before we get to enjoy again.

Have a great Christmas!

Hey Ready, I think things are chilling where you are, so will share some pics from paradise!

This is an orchid near my pond...

Re:




Wow TripleS!

I am sooooo jealous lol! The only time I get to see gorgeous flowers like that is in the springtime, irises and clematis, but I absolutely love orchids!

Thanks for sharing and please keep em coming!
