Yikes, we are up to Y for the alphabetical gardening series,which has been showcasing plants, birds, and whimsy found throughout the year in my garden.
Plants beginning with y are yucca, yarrow and yellow loosestrife.
Yellow is a favourite colour of mine for blooms in the garden throughout the year – marsh marigolds, 4 o’clocks, sneezeweed, creeping jenny, yellow iris, coreopsis, begonias, daylilies, prairie coneflowers, heliopsis
One year I did some yarn bombing on the lilac trees lining the path beside the garage. I’ve seen some amazing yarn bombing that others have done but I’m only an amateur. While cleaning the craft closet I came across a stack of squares from other projects and decided to add them to the branches of the trees. It was a fun project to do but after a couple of seasons outside the yarn got all faded and tatty looking so I took it down. Have you seen any amazing yarn bombing projects?
There were numerous photo opportunities for finding Y while out with my camera. The parliament buildings in Ottawa had interesting depictions. I even found a Y in the sky while driving home one day (I wasn’t driving when the photo was taken) and my favourite Y was the tree on the Cobourg Beach.
I’m continuing to add to my personal alphabet with y.
Y – youthful,
After this week there is just one more letter to go in the alphabetical gardening series.
