This should be a another good letter as so many T's in the garden.
My favourite Tradescantia is an Osprey

Tiarella I think this one is the oakleaf

Well, Laura, at least you didn't try to convince us it was a Partridge in your Pine tree!!! (lovely tulips!

And I can almost remember the taste of fresh garden tomatoes too!

So, here is my offerings for the "T" section.


Tommies, trillium, and my troilius...the last one FINALLY produced flowers after a three year wait.

Laura, your last picture is quite artistic. I quite like it.
Betty the feathery centre of the Tradescantia is very attractive, and I always like to see shots of your garden.

Just missed yours Liz. Nice looking tommytoes. Sometimes the wait is worth it.

Tony's Peony. This was one my husband admired, so I bought it for Father's Day! :roll: Unfortunately I've lost the tag, hence the name:

At T already?

Tulips. The little white flakes are petals from the chokecherry tree.

Tomatoes - Silvery Fir Tree. They are not ripe in this picture, but this was my tomato STAR last year. Determinate, so it fits in a pot, decorative fern like foliage and a 2 inch tomato nearly every day.

Polianthes Tuberosa
