Queen Elizabeth Park

On my last trip to Vancouver, mid-May, I visited Queen Elizabeth Park and the Bloedel Conservatory. Here are some highlights:

ferns looking like strange creatures of the deeps


This colour combination caught my eye...


Handkerchief tree, Davidia involucrata.

the last two photos are not from the Park, but from the neighborhood where my parents live:

Right underneath the handkerchief tree is a doublefile viburnum... want one? I have one (unhappy) in my yard, and I can't seem to pull it out because it gets those beautiful flowers in the spring, turns dark red in the fall, and has that horizontal branching year round. But OH how I hate to have to water it!!!

Well, I'm certainly not one of those gardeners who can ruthlessly get rid of a plant because of some difficult feature or other. I'm a packrat and will keep a plant long past the point of being cruel!
