I have only got a few things flowering but here they are. Enjoy! Marg

Yosemite Star has just finished flowering.

Gypsy Romance is on her last legs, so to speak

White McKenna Giant Columbine

Rocky Mtn. penstemon

Josephine Clematis with Lady's Mantle. Must be the year of the clematis becuse I've never had them this big before, one measured 7".

Angel's Choir poppies that reseeded everywhere, even in my rhubarb!

Here they are with lamb's ears & Walkers Low catmint.

Beautiful, You are well ahead of me, cold and rainy here again. Suppose to be like this next week as well. Guess I will keep planting cold season crops in the garden and just quit my complaining and enjoy.

Thanks everybody. This has been a good year for the clematis, the largest flowers I've had on Josephine. The poppies are my favorite poppies because of the small foliage, variety of colors (reds, pinks & white), and also because you never know if they will come up single or double! They seem to reseed everywhere, even in my laneway! I try to pull out the excess and keep them in the garden. Marg

Marg, your beauties are refreshing to see here in the frozen north. We are way behind you on a good year but this year we are really slow. Nice to see some blooms. Love Josephine! I can hardly wait for my poppies to year. Thank you for sharing.:)

Beautiful! The Angel's Choir poppies are really cute! Might have to see if I can find some of those!

Our clematis blossoms are just ready to start popping out any day now! Can't wait. I don't know how big they'll be, but there are lots of them!
