Yesterday, I want on a fabulous Toronto Tree Tour, sponsored by LEAF, and the Toronto Public Space Committee, this one of the trees of Danforth East. Unfortunately, I don’t have the time to talk about all I learned just now. So more on this soon.
However, I did want to quickly post a pic of this show-stopping set of tulips I passed on my walk home.
I accosted and subsequently became acquainted with neighbour L., who told me she didn’t remember the variety, but purchased these at an end-of-season sale from East of Eliza a couple of years ago. A lily-flowered tulip in brilliant orange, with outer bands of red. Anyone?
[Update: This is most likely the wonderful ‘Ballerina’ tulip. Helen now has many in her garden.]
