I hope you like Take Out! The Floral Alphabet Soup is such a treat, and the letter G is no exception with many interesting Grasses including Glyceria, and the ever beautiful Gladiolus, the Geums, some of which have already been shown, but also some things like Grindelia which I have only encountered in the field and have never Grown. And not to mention actual Garden Landscape photos are often exhibited in this letter when I have done this elsewhere, but I know this website has other places for those photographs, so I leave it all in your Good Hands. To start G's I am tossing these in the pot....

Grape Hyacinth, I am looking forward to seeing these soon:

Geranium x oxonianum Phoebe Noble (I never took Chemistry from Dr. Noble, but I was there when she was a teacher at UVIC: She once was interviewed about this plant and when the journalist said he had it in his garden she said..."Oh, that is too bad! I mow it with the lawnmower!" Or something like that, I just know she was right about its invasive nature, and I have mine corralled between the deck and the walkway around the upstairs pond. Its a testament to this plant that it grows untended in the drawdown zone of the Arrow Lakes Reservoir. And I did not put it there, btw.



Gate; this is now about 2 years old. It covers my Garden shed, which I may burden you with as well, photographically, later. (The photograph has been treated in a software program).

Well, a few minutes ago, I finished entering my last 'F's into the Soup Pot, and now I'm ready for the 'G's.
I mentioned a Fern that started with a 'G', so here is the Oak Fern, Gymnocarpus dryopteris with triangular fronds and making a great ground cover.For some reason it exists in Google, but it's not yet in our Database - or maybe the name has changed. A bit more research necessary.


Three Gaillardias:

These double Galanthus or Snowdrops are beginning to poke up their heads right now, 3 inches away from the snowbank, and will bloom this year from early February to well into April.
and you really have to pick a few and savour the fragrance. - (Thank you Robert @robertduval14 for the use of your inspiring face view of Galanthus nivalis 'Flore Pleno')

Galanthus never do very well for me here... plant them and they disappear. What do they need?

Holy cow J! um, just curious, how many lilies do you have? 5-10+ for each letter of the alphabet? Hilarious!
