Wow, that's quite the Veronica collection Sharon! I love how they're all so different. Your wagon wheel group is so nicely landscaped :0)
I have Verbascum nigrum too, thanks to Sharon...
And that would be all.
Gil, I see a bee in your Verbascum nigrum, last summer, I couldn't believe how many bees that were buzzing around these plants.
Must not forget 'Willy' Clematis alpina
Oops, I forgot one more....
Venidium fastuosum ' Monarch of the Veldt
Very nice pics ladies!
Here's what I've got.
Waterlily and Water hyacinth.
Here's a very low growing Veronica, but I'm not sure what type it is.
I'm so glad that I can show off my 'Willy' too! :)
This was my one and only flower from daylily 'Wilson Spider' last year. I'm looking forward to much nicer and more blooms from it this year.
Here's my Verbascum. (Thanks Marcia!)
Venidium 'Orange Prince'. This was my youngest DS pride and joy, as he planted and looked after it.
Here are mine:
SDB Widow's Veil
SDB Wild Ruby
DL Winsome Lady
DL Utopian Irrelevance
DL Wayside King Royal
That's it for me for this time! Enjoy.

Laurie, how come your 'Willy' looks bigger than mine ;)
Looks like your Veronica is a austriaca ssp. teucrium Hungarian Speedwell, looks great with the Snow-in-Summer! I'll have to remember that combination when I do some dividing this spring.
Great photos everyone!
Sharon have you got 'Willy' envy?!!LOL
Sorry........just couldn't let that one go by! :)
Now you're just being a 'silly willy' Laurie!
hahaha...It's a good thing I dont have a willy to compete with :-O
Im preplexed..my William Baffin has the colour of your W. Booth Sharon but grows and has flower clusters like it should..hmmmm
viscaria- ruby flax
Savona, could be our cameras or computer monitors making a difference?
William Baffin has deep pink semi-double blooms and William Booth is single medium red to deep pink blooms with a white eye.
When I went looking for the u,v,w I was quite surprised at how many pictures I had for this topic. So, here it goes...
First is the U's ...
Uncle Albert Lily
Then the v's...
Velvet Night Heuchera (coral bells)
Another lily, Voodoo Lily. I love the dark red coloring on it.
Another lily, Vanguard Lily
Now, for a TB iris, Vision in Pink.
And a daylily, Vanilla Fluff Daylily
This is a close picture of my Veronica, wooly speedwell.
Another Veronica, this one is sunny border blue.
I really like the next two veronicas. This one is Evelyn Veronica with the pink flowers.
And this one is Royal Candles Veronica.
Then I also have a maltese cross (Lychnis) that is Vesuvius Lychnis. Here is a picture of its flowers.
Victoria Louise Poppy has such a pretty pink flower and I love the little 'thumbprint' on the outside of the flower.
Then of course Violas or Johnny Jump Ups.
And when winter comes I make a lot of Venison jerky...
View from my living room over the Assiniboine River Valley...
Got to start the W's with a very important event in our family...my daughter's Wedding in our yard...
And of course, I do a lot of Watering in the yard...
And a few houseplants...the White Fuzzy Wandering Jew...
And the Bolivian Wandering Jew that spent the summer on the deck...
An old Wheelbarrow that is now a planter each year...
Water lettuce in the pond.
Now, for the Wine Pixie Lily...
And a few irises...the Wizard of Hope Iris
And What Again Iris...
and Wacko Iris...
a hosta...the Wide Brim Hosta.
a phlox, the White David Phlox. I like the way it shows off with the old wicker headboard behind it.
a few daylilies... the first Wine Delight Daylily
and Watermelon Man Daylily...
In the spring I see the White Lion Daffodil blooming under the tree...
And the White Old Fashioned Bleeding Heart...
And my Wyoming Cannas..
And of course, it is still Winter here in Manitoba, so here is a Winter picture in my yard.
But I will not show you a picture of my weeds! Conveniently I have no pictures of them.
Everyone, all I can say is:
Brenda, your valley and winter pictures are some of the reasons why I LOVE Manitoba!!
