Thanks, Norm!

We got a tour of a greenhouse from a friend of mine.  It's amazing what kinds of flowers will bloom in a greenhouse - things you wouldn't expect to see growing in Ontario.  Once again - thanks for the tour, Norm.

The Eighties are Back

I remember neon pink leg warmers from the first time round.  I wonder what else is coming back?  I've seen the sunglasses with the venetian blinds on them already.  But I haven't seen anyone with shoulderpads yet.

Everything is so fresh and clean after the rain. 

Lupins

The lupins are blooming in our front yard.  I wish there was some way to have them bloom more than once, but they're a June flower - they'll be fading by the middle of July, if I recall correctly.  But they're cool, the way their flowers appear on the stem.  They start out like you see at the top, and then the colours appear, and the individual flowers bloom.

Fading Spring

Oh dear, the blossoms are already fading and wilting.  Spring is racing past us, as we enjoy the warmer weather.  Summer will be here soon, and I'm looking forward to long walks after work, watching the city life in the evenings. 

Tulip Lawn

One of my neighbours seems to have missed the garden when planting these.  They've sprouted up all over his front lawn, and I have to say that the effect is wonderful.

It's been a dreary winter so far - too much snow, slush and muck.  So, it was nice to see the flowers outside for Valentine's Day.  Bright colors and green leaves make a nice antidote to the gloom.

A winter garden blows in the breeze, waiting for spring to arrive.

I took yesterday off of work, and spent a big chunk of the time tramping around High Park.  It was warm, and the snow was "angry" according to my darling fiance, who joined me on my birthday photowalk.  I loved the way that these flowers poked up out of the snow that covered their garden.

Autumn Decay

Summer is long gone, and the weather is getting nippy.  Thanksgiving has come and gone.  At least we have Christmas to look forward to! (or is it too early to talk about that?)

I love the spring.  Have I mentioned that on this blog?  I love the appearance of the colors other than white and brown that we see so much over the winter. That being said - I love the white flowers.

I don't know what this tree is, but the flowers look seriously weird.  Once again, more evidence that the long winter is over, and we're starting to look at definite springness.

Spring is in full swing, and the trees are blooming everywhere.  There are two of these trees on our street, and the blossoms are all out.

Another flower shot, taken at the Allen Gardens Conservatory on my birthday.

Standing Alone

I spent part of my birthday at the Allan Gardens Conservatory. Very peaceful place, and, even deep into the winter, lots of blooming plants. It's a pretty cool place, all in all.
