Back to the Garden-by-the-Bay with a few more flower pictures today. You'll understand how refreshing it was to find this now that we don't have a large flower garden ourselves.
A single beautiful line of Bleeding Hearts.
I was really astonished that my iPhone could take a close-up of this Iris like this.
A very pretty blue-flowered plant that we didn't recognize. Any gardeners out there know it?
A very unusual double-flowered Columbine.
And how's this for a beautiful white Lilac still in full bloom!
There was a handy-dandy sign which provided some background on the garden - the blogger's friend for posts like this. It told me that this was the Millennium Project for the Garden Club of Owen Sound back in 2000. And if you read the details it would tell you that after volunteers had planted the garden the city found the soil in the area was contaminated. The volunteers had to dig everything up again, pot all the plants, and replant the next year after all the soil was replaced. In spite of the frustration they must have felt, we were very impressed, both with the garden and the maintenance today.
