More blooms from the yard.....

Due to the weather and other obligations such as family visiting, we haven't had much time for riding so I am posting something I've had in drafts since last month....the dahlias and yellow daisies are still blooming though.....

As things have bloomed in the yard this season I have taken more pictures.

Yellow Shasta Daisy.... This was taken after we cut a few blooms to bring inside - bits of lavender in the background:

Generic Dahlia......

Pink Calla Lillies....

And last a generic Digitalis or Foxglove....

  1. Very nice photos. Wish I could get pretty things to grow.

  2. Trobairitz:

    At least one of us has a green thumb, and it's NOT me. It must have been the many years of growing up in Keremeos and taking notes from the local farming community.
    You must have a very colourful and aromatic garden

  3. Thanks guys. It helps to be married to a self-proclaimed plant geek. I cannot take all the credit as Troubadour is right there with me planting, weeding, etc. Although my mom was always planting flowers and growing veggies in Keremeos so I learned to appreciate flower and vegetable gardens at a young age.
