{Almost} Wordless Wednesday :: Blue Zebra Primrose (Primula)

Posted on: April 15th, 2015 by Trillium Art

  Poof!  And just like that it is spring again!  I had a sudden urge this past weekend to spend as much time as I could outside.  It was wonderful!  The birdhouses and feeders were washed and hung ready for new neighbours. Some additional pruning was tackled to keep on top of the winter damaged […]

{Almost} Wordless Wednesday :: Anna’s Red Lenten Rose (Helleborus)

After spending some time in the southern States recently, it was hard to leave spring there and travel back north. Winter seems to be hanging on with the freezing rain outside my window reaffirming that spring still has to wait! I am desperate for colour (just like everyone else it seems) and when I happened […]

  With only 30 days until the first day of spring (and yes, I’m counting!) I am ready to put winter behind us and look forward to spring. Don’t get me wrong, our family has enjoyed this winter with our walks along the trails and our science experiments off the back deck.     To […]

{Almost} Wordless Wednesday :: Flowering Maple (Abutilon)

Posted on: February 4th, 2015 by Trillium Art

Even though there has been more shoveling this week than all winter, I am encouraged to think that spring is really not that far away! It’s time to start thinking about different container arrangements since these usually include more tropicals than perennials. Tropical plants have me feeling warmer already! What colour scheme should I try […]

{Almost} Wordless Wednesday :: Burdock or Wild Rhubarb (Arctium minus)

Posted on: January 21st, 2015 by Trillium Art

  While the sunshine sparkles during our mornings, I enjoy my morning walks with my furry friend. One especially frosty morning last week, I took a wander down along the banks of the Grand River. The sun hadn’t reached the bottom of the valley when I was there…but it was a lovely, peaceful walk.  For […]

{Almost} Wordless Wednesday :: Hugh McLaughlin Rex Begonia

I am on a big foliage obsession at the moment. There are no plants in flower at our house so I am exploring plants with interesting leaves and texture. Although the sunshine and blue skies were a welcome sight today, the garden is buried under a blanket of white! The past few weeks have been […]
