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?

Yellow Flag.

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.


  1. Beautiful flowers, some really unusual.

  2. The lilac bush is particularly beautiful.

  3. All so lovely, but I especially like the Bleeding Hearts.

    All the best Jan

  4. Beautiful photos, I especially love that close-up of that first iris.

  5. So lovely! I don't know the name of the mystery flower but it sure is pretty. :-)

  6. Lovely flowers! Your iphone did good.

  7. Truly a treasure trove of colorful flowers for you and I too am impressed with that close up iPhone Iris photo. Good job on all the other photos as well.

  8. You did take some really wonderful shots here. The mystery plant reminds me of agapanthus and yet the blooms don’t see quite the same.

  9. The columbine are really something!

  10. Gotta love all your wonderful flower pictures , thanks for sharing.

  11. Beautiful flowers, and what a labour of love, to plant, dig up,pot then replant. A wonderful tribute to all those who helped.Double Columbine, that inspires me to have some in our garden this coming summer.

  12. I think your mystery plant is Camassia quamash or Common Camass. What a beautiful garden to explore.

  13. Beautiful pictures. Love the close up of the iris.
    Upon some searching it looks like the mystery flower is an agapanthus or more commonly a simple blue iris. A perennial plant that can survive up to 75 years!! I'm sure there are many other names. :)

  14. The blue flower looks equally like a Camass or Agapanthus----look at the foliage. I do love flowers and plants and to add to that---it is amazing how well the camera on our cell phone work

  15. Wonderful shots of a beautiful garden! :)
