In the May issue of More of Our Canada, we had a beautiful spread of flower photos called "In Bloom," with Canadians sharing their best flower and macro shots. This photo was taken by 14-year-old Whitley Taggart of Stoney Creek, Ont. Do you have amazing photos like this of your blossoming gardens? We always enjoy all the gardening stories sent to us by the many green thumbs beautifying their corners of Canada. Send in yours today at ourcanada.ca.
