Flower Twist


May is the time to look for Rhododendron flowers (aka Hitty hats), but Tipsy says June is time for sunny days and bare toes!




The Quimper Hittys were intrigued by the annual Double Gloucester Cheese-rolling event in England…they thought it sounded fun!


Berry Early

Black Currant

Arianell is amazed at the number of blackcurrant berries on the bushes this year…It is early yet – they won’t be ripe yet for a few weeks, but there are loads and loads of them! She has dreams of jam, jelly and cordials.


Star Flowers in the tree


Our Cornus Starlight dogwood trees are bloomingly beautifully healthy…


Bonnet Flowers


Young human chose this Columbine plant for me.  We put it into the garden and waited to see what the flowers looked like…


Stars in the Wind


Floradora went outside one morning to discover that the municipal workers had installed a little fence around each of our two Cornus Starlight dogwood trees – thanks, Oak Bay! It should forestall the deer from eating the bark, and also from rubbing their antlers on it in the fall…


Happy Vyshyvanka Day

З днем ​​вишиванки

Tansy wishes everyone З днем ​​вишиванки (Happy Vyshyvanka Day)!




Floradora is getting quite adept at climbing…
