After endless snow, spring may be here.
Welcome to spring 2015! If we've been a little slow in communicating, we've had pretty good reason. Record breaking snowfalls this winter. Really.   We spent a lot of time shovelling snow off greenhouses, making paths to the greenhouses, wood furnace, etc. ...

End of year roundup--favourites and more
Slightly belated Christmas greetings to all--we had not a drop of snow in Nova Scotia, and in fact had record breaking mild temperatures and torrential rains this year. It made travel easy, and we spent a very happy Christmas day with family. Since then I'v...

OMG. Brilliant work, Joe. I am sitting here in a pool of tears. I'll be helping to spread the word...and the calendars.

The joys of daylilies
 This is the time of year where I regularly have people saying to me, "You have something on your nose." It is almost always either true lily pollen, or daylily pollen, because once those beauties start to flower, I can't help but check for fragrance. (Beau...

Singing the Blues...of the Garden
 While flowers in any colour are quite lovely and sometimes fantastic, the blue flowers are definitely my absolute favourites. True blue flowers are quite rare, and as anyone who has ever browsed a seed catalogue, a plant website, or a nursery can attest, t...

Those rare blue flowers
For those of you wondering where I've gotten to...I'm here, and I'm fine, just really, really busy as we get ready for our 10th anniversary Saltscapes Expo . Lots to tell you about while we're also still waiting for the 87 feet of snow that fell in the past...

Falling into autumn...
 Suddenly, it's September 22 and I haven't posted for a month. Why is that, you ask? Well, for sure I'm always busy and never bored, but there was a lot going on in August, some of it personal in support of a friend, and given that my friends have always be...

A Midsummer Miscellany of Colour

It's easy loving green...flowers!
 Perhaps no colour in the floral world is more polarizing than the colour green. Many people dislike green flowers, saying they don't show up well enough--others adore them. Put me firmly in the 'adore' camp. Let's kick off the festival with one of my favou...

Colour Echoes in the Garden
One of the great joys of gardening, of course, is the chance to play with colour. It's like painting with plants: you get to create wonderful colour combinations that please your eye, and that can be changed up yearly, or by moving a couple of container pla...
