Spring and Butchart Gardens

I don't know if anyone would be interested, but here is a link to my pix from this Spring's garden and my visit to Butchart Gardens, Victoria, BC, Canada. I hope you enjoy. :-)

Thanks for sharing. I moved about a year ago and I have it on my list to plant more bulbs this fall. I sure miss my daffodils and alliums. That columbine is very pretty. I visited Butchart Gardens several years ago. It sure looks magical in the spring.

BTW, do you know what your plant labeled "Pretty (Got at Swap, don't know what it is, poppy?)" really is? Sure looks to be Pink Evening Primrose (Oenothera speciosa). A pretty plant but it sure spreads fast!

Thanks Brent! That does seem to be the right name, and yes it does seem to spread quickly. From only one plant with one or two blooms, I now have 10 or so plants.

Can you believe that I got that columbine from Wal-mart last fall? I was VERY pleased this spring. :-)
