Lovely posts, Patricia and inspiring photos. Reassuring for me too. I thought my wife was the only person in the world who ‘gardened’ via flower pots. It has been a super spring/summer here in Europe for flowers following a terrible winter. Funny old world!

Nobody does flowers as well as you do, Patricia. Every single photograph is a gem.
Thank you for sharing.
Beautiful… I love flower photography. I’m no good at growing them, but I can take pictures of them! Well done. 🙂

The beautiful Montreal Botanical Gardens are worth a visit, too (assuming it’s still there since it was many years ago that I visited Quebec).
Amy Tate says
Oh how gorgeous! They are as breathtaking as the Biltmore Gardens in Asheville, N.C.!
I love the photos! They remind me of the Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens in Richmond.
