Kits Gardens

One thing that helps to make me happy is exploring the gardens of Kitsilano. Some of the color combinations are really inspiring, like these arnica blossoms beside a dark grey fence.

 Now take a look at the awesome burgundy foliage on this plant. It looks like Sweet Cicely. Does anyone know what it is?

For your daily dose of bee watching, I recommend the ceonothus bushes that are blooming right now. Usually you can find a whole family of bumble bees feeding together. These bee has a striking red stripe on its abdomen.

Columbines look lovely in the rain.

 I heart cornflowers and their color really works its therapy on a grey day.

I also love this dark iris.

Foxgloves are everywhere now, including the back alleys of Vancouver.

These two trees were meant for a hammock.

Irises really have strong personalities.
Jasmine provides the aromatherapy we need on a rainy day.

I dig this decadent planted piano.
