I was Just totally Jumped by all the Is, and now its time for J, a very delicate ingredient, subtle and often sparse in the collections of photographs, (except for you lot, of course), I have a few to start, and possibly this is all I have, I was a biologist for many years and collected a few native (and non native species of Juncus) and of course there is Joe Pye weed, and Japanese maple, if you haven't already spent all of these in the first part of the alphabet (see, didnt I tell you?) but I am sure there will be Jasmines and Josephs Coat of Many Colors and who knows? The first Juncus is J. effusus spiralis, not a native, the second is a very common Juncus of ditches and waste places i have next to the upper pond, Juncus tenuis. The other two Js are self explanatory, soJ away!

So we are starting with the 'J's. Here are a couple of Jays - (of the Stellar variety) - to kick things off with:


Thumb of 2018-02-13/HemNorth/bcafec Just sitting in the Saskatoon tree, waiting for me to feed them some Walnuts.
The bear likes walnuts too.

And now for some other J's.



And two creeping Junipers.

Ah,
I should have known
That HemNorth and JMorth
would not let me down
But load up some J's
And then drive off to town
To buy up more letters
As you will soon see
The soup maybe missing
An X, Y or Z.

Two shots of the Winter Jasmine - sadly, not fragrant.



And a dear sweet Bee Balm with a bee - Jacob Cline.

Jonquilla - Division 7 of 13 of the Narcissus (as determined by the American Daffodil Society and Royal Horticultural Society). Usually with multiple flowers per stem (1 to 5). Sweetly fragrant. One of the better performers for more 'southern' gardens. Most are forcible.
Zones 4 to 9.

Example -

'Gin is liquor which derives its predominant flavour from juniper berries' Wiki

cheap gin not used for any drinks here but 1/7th of a water/gin combo that is used to keep paperwhite forcers manageable sized.

Some Joe Pye Weed in October.

Thumb of 2018-02-15/HemNorth/f87b1e

Now - a Question - Is this a Jasione - Sheep's Bit Scabious or does it belong to the Globularia category?
Sorry for the blurry photo.
Thumb of 2018-02-15/HemNorth/80cc7b Has anyone grown both of these?

And now to the two Japanese Irises that I was saving for the J's.
