{Almost} Wordless Wednesday :: Echibeckia Summerina Yellow

This is definitely the season for Hydrangeas!  Mid-summer is when they really start to shine.  I have been working on our front garden, an extension of the porch – my favourite outdoor room.  This receives late afternoon sunshine which makes it the perfect spot for a quiet cup of tea at the end of the […]

There were shades of colour as far as your eye could see during the Open House yesterday at the Guelph Trial Gardens located at the Guelph Turfgrass Institute.
