When Spring Can’t Come Soon Enough

….take a trip to a greenhouse, Botanical Garden Centre or take in the Canada Blooms Show

On Sunday, it had warmed up slightly but the sky was grey and dreary and it rained off and on. Not a nice day to walk outside but it was warm and fragrant in the Enercare Centre at the CNE where the Canada Blooms show was up and running. Going on the weekend is probably not the best time to go (parking is more expensive and I had to park in one of the satellite lots). It certainly wasn’t a cheap outing, even with the senior’s rate but being able to walk around and see all those beautiful blooms and get some ideas for landscaping my backyard was well worth the money.fullsizeoutput-76d7

A Photo a Week Challenge – Contrasting Colours

….thanks to Nancy Merrill for hosting A Photo a Week Challenge

Contrasting colours or complementary colours are opposite each other on the colour wheel. They are often used in costumes and uniforms because together the colours really stand out. The following are examples of complementary colours: purple and yellow, red and green and orange and blue.
