The Garden is just full of flowers. Here are some shots in the Garden of Snapdragons and Zinnias.
The snaps are available in Pink, White, Red, Yellow. These are such beautiful flowers. Did you know they are lightly scented?

Look at all the Colors. I planted a few new ones this year and I am really pleased.
Here is another new variety of sunflower called "Solar Power." This Bouquet also features statice, frosted explosion grass and alstromeria.

The weather looks good for the rest of the week, so come out and pick some flowers.

This is another of my favourite color combinations, white and blue. Blue is such a challenging color in the garden. The Delphiniums are just coming into bloom again as well as some late planted white hybrid lilies called "Eye liner". Also featured in this bouquet are Dahlias, Lysimachia, Status and Scabiosa. The garden is finally just brimming with flowers.

If you are looking for a stunning color combination then red, yellow and orange are the way to go. Cuts used in this Custom order vase where Dahlias, Calla Lilies, Hypericum, Frosted Explosion grass, Zebra Grass, crocosmium and golden rod. Wow!!

Wow! look at all the Calla Lilies!

I finally have a good crop of calla lilies. I have been trying for a few years and this year all is going well. They are stunning by them selves or mixed with other flowers. Here are some of my creations.

Sunflowers and Callas. Again my current favourite color combo. Yellow and white.

Dahlias and Callas. This Yellow calla is unbeleivable!

Callas with Liatris, sea Lavender, alstromeria and status. Just Lovely!

Calla are available pre-picked in single stems, bunches or bouquets.

We also have a good supply of Dahlias. The field has lots of color. For those of you that have not visited yet, don't panic when you do not see Dahlias on the driveway. They needed a bigger area and now are just behind the store in the new flower area.
