|For years, I've called this "my little red tree" because I forgot its name,|
and because it didn't grow very fast or very tall,
but now it is about as tall as I am, which is about five foot four, and...
|today Dick and I planted this little fella, a "Red Baron Ninebark"|
which is now my little red tree and Whatsitsname is my bigger red tree.
|Another Whatsitsname. This is my mystery-berry bush. It might be some kind of cotoneaster, but its fruit is soft and is getting ripe, whereas...|
|I know this one is a cotoneaster, because I remember its name, and I also looked it up online. Its fruit is hard, and stays hard after ripening to a very dark color.|
|Blossoms on my "pink potentilla" bush. Most of the potentillas|
I've seen since moving to Alberta 10 years ago have yellow

|larger than usual.|
|My squash garden is blossoming, but I don't seem to be growing very many actual squashes.|
Addendum: Thanks to two commenters, Carola B. and Jinksy, for suggesting my first Whatsitsname is a smoke bush. Jinksy further identified it as a cotinus coggyria Royal Purple, which indeed it is, but its common name"smoke bush" is easier for me to remember. Thanks, both of you!
