Spring arrived on Thursday, but so far you’d never know it wasn’t still winter here in Toronto. It’s been cold and it’s going to continue to be cold for at least another week. We’re even going to get some more snow tomorrow and later in the week – ice pellets.
Like many other cities this was the worst winter that we’ve experienced in years, with almost record setting snow falls! Oops. Perhaps I shouldn’t say that out loud as we only need 20 cm more to break our previous record and I think we’ve got until June to break it. Please please please don’t snow until June!
I think I’ve got a bad case of Cabin Fever. I’m just dying to see my garden again. Those first green sprouts coming up out of the ground are a joyful sign of better days to come.
The flowers I’m showing you today are Globe Flowers. They tend to bloom in Late May or in June and when they do bloom they flower for about three weeks at a time. They’ll even rebloom in August or early September if you cut down their flower stalks once they’ve finished blooming.
Globe flowers are very pretty and their bright yellow sure lights up the garden.
I grow mine in a small flower bed just at the end of my driveway.
Do you grow any flowers in your garden that just seem to really brighten everything up?
