Snowdrop Surprise

I did some botanizing with Barry Parker at an Ontario Heritage House. The property has a very well established mass of Galanthus nivalus ,singles and doubles. As you can see by the pics below there has been some cross pollination and colour forms evolving over the century theyve been growing. Maybe rare and unusual??? It was fun checking out all the clumps to see what was different.

2011 Peterborough Garden Show

A truly gardener's garden show, always a treat to go to each year with a great selection of local vendors. Unlike Canada Blooms it is horticulturally based and relevant. An easy picturesque drive from Toronto. Picked up some choice Clematis, Hellebores and other perennials...all at very very reasonable prices. How do they do it??? I gave the person in charge of putting on the show some positive feedback and im already look forward to next years event......
