Still have colour in our garden!

We've had several fairly hard frosts, but Linda has been diligent about covering the plants or moving the most delicate into the garage. Yesterday we were out and about for Doors Open YYC. We visited Lougheed House; their garden is spectacular! I was looking at ours in strong evening light, and realized there was still a ton of colour to be had, if you looked carefully. So here you go. If you want to know what is in the photos, you'll have to leave a comment and ask Linda.


  1. Those colours are amazing! Linda's garden has been really spectacular!

    1. Thank you Sophia, but all I did was stuff plants in the fertile ground:) For anyone interested, the flower photos above are collarette dahlia; 'the wave' petunia with some geraniums; wild Alberta rose foliage with rosehips; another geranium; peony foliage; another collarette dahlia; torenia (wishbone) flower; more vibrant petunias; the remaining leaves of the Princess Kay plum tree; a canna lily spike & last but not least, wallflower.

  2. Hey Linda, you have one of the most beautiful gardens I have ever seen. I know you love lilies. Do you have a favourite annual, perennial, shrub and tree? (Or like a momma, you love them all the same?) ;)


Looking forward to reading your comment!
