so excited to take photos of the lilacs in the garden…

they are beautiful and I plan to cut some for the office tomorrow morning…

I did have a little giggle when I looked across the street and saw the lilac bush filled with blooms

when we removed the lilacs from the backyard, many years ago, our neighbour planted one small piece and this is what it has grown into… we used to laugh when one of her boys would take a golf club to it occasionally when he was having a bad day, lol…

had lunch out with my daughter and eldest grandson and we picked up a few items for the garden

most excited with the Japanese Maple bowl I discovered… will put it out in the garden once the weather stays more on the warm side…

ended up with three hanging baskets, some lobelia, a fancy eggplant, and a little white hydrangea… also found a water lily and a few other water plants…

apparently the province has banned water hyacinth which is crazy… although it is a noxious weed in the south, it dies here in the cold… I haven’t even been able to get it to stay alive in the aquarium over the winter… very disappointing as the water hyacinth multiply and cover the top of the pond providing protection from the light/algae and a safe place for baby fish to grow…

while we were shopping, saw these cute little three year old parrots that were riding on their owner’s shoulder as she wandered around the garden centre…
