Brrr…wow, that change in temperature has really brought home the fact that fall is indeed here to stay (there was even snow flurries in Fergus this morning!).  We have enjoyed our extended Indian Summer but I think it’s about time to put the garden to bed. I have headed outside this week with my belly […]

The last day of September was such a beautiful fall day.  It had rained on Saturday night and Sunday dawned clear, fresh and warm. An afternoon hike through the Elora Gorge was exactly the way to celebrate the fall colours and being outside. Victoria Park in Elora, Ontario is a lovely park with trails along […]

Like a Kid in a Candy Store!

Last week on a beautiful sunny afternoon, I attended the 2012 Trial Garden Open House on the grounds of the Turf Grass Institute at the University of Guelph.  I was like a kid in a candy store, with over 500 cultivars of annuals, perennials and vegetables.  I must admit, I am a sucker for new […]

A recent Father’s Day found our family at the Lowville Bistro for a wonderful relaxing brunch on the patio.  What a stunning summer afternoon to visit and get caught up with my hubby’s side of the family. Our interest was piqued with the beautiful quartz in both bathrooms created by a local artist.  Everyone made […]
