|Pink and yellow tulips scream "spring is here"!|
Toronto blooms (under glass)
As promised in an earlier post called "Beating the February blahs", here are some recent photos I took when I visited nearby Allan Gardens Conservatory.
You'll likely see similar plantings at Canada Blooms held next month but if you're suffering from HSAD (horticulture seasonal affective disorder) right now or don't plan to go to the national/home/garden/flower/renovation show (talk about a hybrid under one roof!), I hope these pics will alleviate your cabin fever (or possibly exacerbate it.)
|Can anyone i.d.the purple flowers in front of the daffodils?|
|Now, isn't this just to die for?|
|Cyclamens just speak of cool early spring|
|Bed of cyclamen and English ivy that is clean and fresh to me|
|Quite the contrast in this bromeliad|
|Early spring colour that would be eye-catching in your garden beds!|
|Pink hyancinths and white cyclamen and light green "cypressy"|
Could this be your spring colour scheme for 2012?
