I wrote about harmless hoarding of pots in the Hamilton Spectator today

This fig is in a pot at the front door

Ornamental rhubarb is so exotic, but yesterday the storm blew it right out of the pot.In the garden..

 I am loving peonies 
                                                    and black and blue salvia

and baptisia

Dead ivy, stunted wisteria, missing maples. Gardens are still recovering from the severe winter.

My neighbour's wisteria looked like this last year, this year it's only now starting to put out some leaves. 
But Hey alliums look fabulous now. Everyone should plant this easy to care for bulb.

 And the red horse chestnuts are so pretty this year, too bad they get blight later in the season. But still a magic tree to have in your yard.
