…is just the place to rejuvenate and gather energy after last week’s busy schedule. I love poppies and iris and when I arrived in Edmonton I was immediately struck by how far along the gardens are.
I have always had a passion for poppies. When I lived in Calgary poppies grew in our perennial bed without much effort. Moving to Saskatchewan I brought along some precious seeds, but they never took. Our property at the lake is more shaded by trees and as a result I have not been able to grow my favorite flowers for the past eight summers.
I was delighted to find my friend’s garden in full bloom. Enjoy today’s short slide show of mostly poppies. I am exploring the city, picking up art supplies and some silk fabric before I have the honor and pleasure of judging this year’s entries of the Edmonton and District Quilt Show. Hope to see you there!
