My flowers in my little back yard

Hello everyone, I’m sure that you were wondering where I was all this time, well I was here. Between all the storms and the really hot weather we are having, I was working very slowly on my back yard. I have a few photos today for you to look at today.

                            My Clematis

    My Ruhbarb

  I have a new Rhubarb plant that I planted in spring it has grown like crazy, I will harvest some of the stems for a pie in a few days ( Rhubarb & Cherry ).

My Clematis is doing very well, I believe it may be at least 25 years old or even older.

I also have another color of Gerbera Daisies but it is in between blooms right now.

All of my Amaryllis are outside this summer gaining some energy, But I really have to thin out the bunch, so if anyone in Edmonton wants a free Amaryllis plant then leave me a message  at  hhr52@shaw.ca     Only Edmonton and area residents need apply for free Amaryllis plants. If I can’t get ride of a lot of these plants by September, then they will go into my compost bin.

    1. Hi Adrian, the nights get pretty cold in late September and the snow starts flying at the end of October. Some years, but not very often, we don't get snow until December (once every 10 to 20 years). Can get down to -30C around December.

    1. I'm doing fine Cat, just needed a break from blogging. Had a lot of work to do on my little garden. Made a compost bin and had to do a lot of weeding in my little garden. Hope your doing well.

    1. We have a bit of a heat wave here now, +30C, need to keep my eye on the garden so that I don't loose any plants. We're not use to this kind of heat, sure glad I go air conditioning.

  5. Your rhubarb is doing a lot better than ours, but then yours is planted in the actual ground and ours is still in a pot on top of the rabbit hutches! I love rhubarb crumble, so am not likely to eat that this year. Love those yellow flowers, and the composition of the photos with them in is, as always, lovely.

    1. Vera, why is your Rhubarb not in the ground yet? I'm sure that you have a great place to put it.

  9. Hello Horst your flowers looked just beautiful. You must have been very busy in your garden this year. Not here in the blogging world much, but have to come by and see old friends once in a while.
