Macro Monday – New Growth
…now that the weather is warming up there are signs in the yard and neighbourhood that the plants are ready to rise up
I’m a Fan of…..Centennial Park Conservatory

Now that spring has arrived the Centennial Park Conservatory staff have created a wonderful new display of the most glorious spring flowers. The first thing that hits you before you even enter the room is the perfume smell from those beautiful flowers. The feature room changes at least five times a year if not more often. It’s well worth the visit if you live in Toronto or close by.

Still Harvesting from my Garden
….an of October and I’m still getting vegetables from my garden
I’ll probably be picking kale well into November. There are still lots of cherry tomatoes but as it gets colder the odds of them ripening on the vine diminishes.
Garden Art in Community Gardens
…thanks to Marsha for hosting PPAC https://alwayswrite.blog/2022/10/14/ppac-67-portland-international-rose-test-garden/
Close to where a dear friend lives I witnessed what happens when a community comes together to create gardens on land that would normally be ignored. Some of the gardens are pollinator gardens and others have bird houses to attract birds. The schools have become involved by encouraging children to paint signs and make sculptures that have been carefully placed among the plants.
