Last but not least and to finish our alphabet albums for the year, let's see what you have for XY and Z's ;)

Btw, it's been a long winter and it was so enjoyable viewing all your alphabet photos.

Thanks to all you FN Gardeners who participated and here's to taking photos for this season!

Happy Gardening!

Laurie, I really like your 'Zulu Prince' venidium! Did you start them from seeds or buy as bedding plants from the nursery? (Are they deer proof?)

Lovely irises BJ. I especially like Xanthrippes Halo, love the colours on it!

Brenda, I started the venidium from seed. I'm not sure if they're deer proof or not. I thought I had some extra seed, but I can't seem to find it.

Thanks Laurie, this year I will have 100 'Zowies'. I liked them so much last year, I decided to buy more seed for this year ;)

Zulu, looks like its got perfect eyeliner around the eye.

Im sure anyone looking in on these threads here will come away knowing the far north gardeners have an abundance of beautiful flowers in their gardens..living in the far north does not mean we are restricted in our creativity and imagination for what we want our gardens to look like :-)

This yarrow does not spread as badly as the pastel yarrows. It is called Appleblossom Yarrow.

The Paprika Yarrow is another one that does not spread badly either.
