Welcome to my zone 9 garden. My roots are deeply planted in the sandy soil of sub-tropical central Florida, where the summers are long and hot, but the rest of the year is paradise!

Canadian Flowers

We just returned home from our vacation to Canada and Maine. Springtime is in the air with cool temps, lots of fog and beautiful flowers. This photo was taken outside of a sugar shack in Quebec.

A rock garden planted on Prince Edward Island

I don't know what these are but they're beautiful.

Peggy's Cove (Halifax, Nova Scotia) garden in full bloom.

And, the lighthouse at Peggy's Cove shrouded in fog.

I don't know what most of the flowers are with the exception of hostas and irises. I think the pink ones might be bleeding heart (fuschia). Perhaps someone will enlighten me.

Wow. Those flowers are beautiful. Who knew Bleeding hearts got so big? (At least I think that's what they are). Great pictures! :)

susiesqs...I, too, think they are bleeding hearts. We only see them as small potted plants here in Fla.
