Fall Flowers

Posted by
Kenton (Calgary, Canada) on 15 September 2008 in Plant & Nature.

We are very lucky to have wonderful neighbors, one of whom is an avid gardener. In the spring when she is working on her garden she tends to plant things in ours as well. This is great because otherwise our garden would just be dirt and weeds.
So, today I headed out to take some of the first fall pictures and discovered that not all of the flowers were done. These had just started to bloom and I took a number of pictures. I think they are a type of Delphinium, however if you know differently I'd appreciate you letting me know.
*UPDATE* A couple of people (including my wife...) have said these are Gladioli, and they do look much more like that. Thanks.

I always appreciate feedback and constructive criticism. Thanks for stopping by.

If you've followed me for a long time you'll notice that I haven't been posting here as regularly. I post in a number of places and I find that it is just too many to keep up with. Most of my work is now being posted at but I'm trying out the new Aminus3 too.
