We have had some wicked storms, so thought I should take some pictures before it gets demolished by hail

I cut down the huge rose since it got tangled in the power lines. It had grown taller than the house (the 3rd year from planting) and got a bit out of control

I always love seeing photos of your garden, Joanne. You make so many beautiful choices (and unlikely ones, given your zone).

Thanks Teresa & Jo Ann!

I had an open garden for the Calgary Hort Society on Aug 11, and took these pictures that day. It is interesting how the look changes as the season does.

Here's mid August 2013

Joanne - I just came across this thread and all I can say is .... WOW! I am amazed at what you can grow in Canada and zone 3a! Fabulous garden!

BTW - Your daughter's sketch (your avatar) is really, really good! How old is she? She needs to be a graphic artist!

Teresa, That "tree lily" is an OT called Conca d' Or. I had no idea that it would grow so tall and it is a poor choice for location since it is under my hawthorn tree. Every year it gets a bit bigger. I should move it, but haven't picked out a better spot.

Thanks Becky! I do grow a ton of annuals, which really fill up the garden. I'm working on an article about using annuals to enhance colour themes and it has been fun to go thru the photos from past years. I've had a "Blue", "Pink", "Burgundy" and even did "hot" colours one year. I asked my husband what he thought my garden theme was and he thinks it is a rose garden Hilarious! The kid laugh and stated that he must have not seen all the petunias. Same question to my neighbor and her response was a wonderful herb & veggie garden with nice flowers (she loves to cook). I just like to grow everything and try to use annuals to tie it together with all the colours.

My daughter is 15. I'm not sure what she will decide for a career direction, but what ever it may be, I'm am sure that she will continue sketching.

I had the opportunity to visit Joanne's garden last summer.
It is a great inspiration to many of us in the Calgary area.
It is so nice to be reminded of it on New Year's Day when there is snow outside!
Thanks Joanne!

Very inspiring, yes an OT I only have the one but I do grow several other true lilies. Just not many picks of those to share.
