Morrison Point in bloom

Posted in: Gardens, Weather, Wild flowers | 4

We’re back after two weeks of frustrating technical problems which would not allow us to post photos. Sheila seems to have solved the problem today so we can start posting again. Lots has been happening with the farm with: chickens, chicks, goats and now piglets. We’ll post more about those in days to come.

Today we want to show some of the flowers on our road over the past month or so. After a mild winter, we had a cold, slow spring but finally in April Daffodils and small bulbs such as Siberian Scilla began blooming and then in May the Trilliums and Lilac have been putting on a real show. Here are a few pictures:

 

daffodils on Morrison Point Rd
We knew that Morrison Point Road was well known for Lilacs but were surprised with the number of Daffodils that came up along the road in April.

 

Vowinkels mixed bulbs
A number of bulbs – Scilla, Chiondoxa, Daffodils – blooming in April on a large property about a kilometre down the road from us. They also have acres of daffodils. The owner generously invited us to walk the property any time and to take some clumps of the smaller bulbs for our yard, which we gladly did.
trilliums
In May the native trilliums began emerging. They can be found in many places but we have a very large mass of them in one area of the property. We really enjoyed the Trilliums in BC but the Trilliums in Ontario (trillium grandiflorum) are slightly larger and more robust. Ontario did well to choose them as the provincial flower.

 

Lilac and wall
Right now the Lilacs are stealing the show almost everywhere in Prince Edward County. When the breezes are warm, their sweet fragrance fills the air. This is the clump featured on many County tourism publications but is viewed from our side of the stone wall.
