I was driving home from Orillia on Highway 12 when I saw this field of clover and Shasta daisies in full bloom- beautiful! I bet the bees love it.  #shastadaisy #clover #pollinators #pollinatorfield #fieldofflowers #flower_daily #flowermagic #flowers #fields
An extra special Father's Day to a bird on my farm. 1 day-old barn swallows.  #barnswallow #babybird #birdsofinstagram #birdstudiescanada #barnswallows #birds  #birdwatching #birdwatcher #egghatching
Father's Day - my favourite weekend. Love watching the garden fill out this time of year.  #fathersday #fathersdayweekend #garden #foliage #boxwood #hosta #mygarden #gardeninspiration #perennialgarden #gardenpath #gardendesign #allium #milkweed
I like putting a containerized mandevilla in my front garden. It acts as a nice beacon of colour that stands out among the foliage.  #mandevilla #colour #floweringvine #flower_daily #flowermagic #annuals #annualplant #containergardening
It's time to put Bordo on the tomatoes, every two weeks from now until the end of summer. Bordo is a copper-based fungicide (CuSO4) that is very safe and prevents fungal infections. Also useful for grapes, apples, potatoes, peaches, ornamental flowers, and squash.  #gyo #growyourown #growyourownfood #homegrown #homestead #homesteader #tomato #tomatoes #vegetables #vegetablegardening #bordo #botanical #organicfungicide #fungicide
Peonies are at their peak right now- such a beautiful flower. Brindle (the dog) approves. Sent by @amborambopaxto,  Gay Paree and David Harnum varieties. Who else has a favourite variety?  #flowers #peonies #peony #flower_daily #flowermagic #flowerstagram #perennial #gardening #gardeninspiration #gardeningseason #dog #dogsofinstagram #englishmastiff #dogstagram #dogsandflowers
Was in Pugwash, Nova Scotia last week when I discovered this Supertunia Bordeaux which was developed there by Sunrise Greenhouses- a worldwide best seller! Beautiful plant.  #supertunia #petunia #annuals #plantbreeding #plantbreed #flower #flower_igers #flowers #flowermagic

Beautiful day to explore the Halifax Public Gardens- maybe my favourite public garden in Canada. Azaleas in full bloom- gorgeous!  #publicgarden #publicpark #azaleas #publicspace #garden #flowers #gardeninspiration

The Royal Botanical Garden's peony and iris collections are in full bloom! Worth checking out this weekend if you are anywhere near Burlington  #iris #peony #peonies #flowers #botanical #botanicalgarden #flowerstagram #ontario #yourstodiscover #royalbotanicalgarden
Spotted 6 bees in this row of camassia last night. This native plant does great in grassy areas with lots of moisture.  #camas #camassia #nativeplants #nativegarden #pollinators #pollinatorgarden #gardeningseason #gardening
TIP: avoid the urge to cut down your daffodils and other spring bulbs now that the Blooms have gone away. Letting the leaves die back naturally allows them to send energy back to the bulb so it can reflower next year. My property does not look its best right now as I wait for 20,000 bulbs to die back before I finish cutting the grass.  #gardeningtip #garden #reflowering #springbulbs #naturalizedgarden #gardenknowhow #diy
Saw these beautiful poppies near full bloom. This hot weather is bringing on blooms fast and furious  #poppies #flowers #garden #gardenlover #flowerstagram #poppy #springcolour #heatwave
My wife Mary picked up her chickens for this season today. Looking forward to fresh eggs again! (Hint: the chickens come before the eggs)  #chickens #eggs #chickenoregg #grownyourown #homestead #chickencoop #eatlocal #modernhomestead #countryliving #homesteader #countrylife
