Welcome to Our New Blog

Hello fellow daylily enthusiasts!!.

It has taken some time, but I now feel confident that our web-site has become user friendly. Susan and I welcome you to our new web-site and to our Blog.  It is as if the sand is shifting beneath our feet in the daylily world. We are all evolving to keep pace with the changing times.

This year, I was on sabbatical from the University of Toronto and have been able to focus heavily on the evolution in our garden. We have reduced the size of the garden without sacrificing the quality of our program. I will use our blog to post images of some of my new and exciting flowers.

We had visits from a number of daylily lovers this May from all over the U.S., Canada and Europe, who were able to visit the greenhouses as well as the outside garden, (including our local McIntosh Garden Club who asked us to speak to their club last January). We thank all of our visitors for going out of your way to visit Le Petit Jardin.
One important event of our year...  for those of you who know our son Gavin, he was married May 30, 2010 to a very lovely and talented Canadian girl from St. Catherine’s, Ontario, Alex Thomson (now Alex Petit). We are thrilled to welcome her into our family.  I am posting a few pictures.

I  hope you will visit us again soon for more updates and seedling images from Le Petit Jardin.
