My Garden Blog: A website to document the challenge of growing a variety of perennials in a northern Canadian climate. I post plenty of pictures of my gardening projects and welcome comments. La Ronge, Saskatchewan is in Zone 1b (USDA zone 2a), sitting on the Canadian shield at 55° 06' N latitude, 105° 16' W longitude.
The trees are green and the lake appears to be entirely thawed here in La Ronge. The first of the tulips are in full bloom in my yard. This lovely yellow tulip is a double late variety. I planted this one from Botanus last fall. I really like the fine red edge on the petals of this double-flowered tulip. Now I need to get out there and dig up the flowering dandelions in my flowerbeds!
