|Yellow Wood Poppy|
I love this time of year when the garden wakes up. My Orchid cactus was a gift from Nancy, and it likes being out in the sunshine.
I have some plants that were new from last year. I'd forgotten about the jack-in-the-pulpit in that post. I hope it sprouts. They are from a native and rare plant nursery in southern Ontario. This Wood Poppy is one of the plants.

Linda, AKA Crafty Gardener, has kindly ID'd the last flower as giant allium. I really don't remember buying them (there are two), let alone planting them!
The red trillium in the woods are still blooming. Nancy, my friend in Muskoka, writes about the difficulties of trillium spreading, as they depend upon critters, like ants!
The white trillium, in the garden, had a bit of a trim. This is a consistent story! At least they left me two blooms this year. Last year, Daisy guarded them for me!

Last year, I planted two apple trees, the last two that sat on the lot at our local nursery. Bambi has trimmed them, but they survived! I placed broken pine boughs around it to discourage them.
My horse chestnut has flowers this year. It didn't do well last year. It is heart-warming seeing everything come back after winter.
