Everyone loves a surprise. Over the past week, I've had 3 of them. First, while we were away, our next door neighbour emailed me a photo of some visitors to our back yard.
My husband and I watched patiently to see if they would return, and sure enough they did.
The Mrs. seems to like sitting on the basket where the arrowhead is - good thing it emerges late.
The next surprise came in a box through the mail. I was trying to recall what I had ordered and couldn't come up with anything, especially since the label was from the McFayden nursery. Angela Olson, their PR lady had a letter tucked inside saying how much she has come to like calla lilies and wanted to share their joy. The company has 2 new ones out this year and enclosed was a corm for 'Captain Safari'. Here is a photo from McFayden's website of what I can expect.; the other new calla is 'Black Star'.
The third surprise was one shared by many gardeners across Ontario. We were treated to dozens, maybe hundreds of migrating red admiral butterflies swarming the Norway maples along the street for sap.
A little fun I had using another photo editor to make a collage - I miss Picnic.
