In town today
I drove to town to run a few errands. I even remembered my camera. But I forgot the memory card and had to drive home again! Senility!
So first I went to the town of Elora where the Mill once again has new owners. The awnings have changed...and are less exciting than the previous ones which were richly striped. I thought Chelone should know...
This year someone with a love of container plants must be working there:
There is lots of colour still:
And then I was on the road to the nearby town of Fergus where the gardens had already been cut back for the year. A nice surprise though was the patch of colchicums.
Then in the parking lot, the maple trees were showing off.
DH then took me to the nursery where i managed to find "just a few" things to fill holes in the newly weeded area. Spots have opened up where dicentra, bergenia and siberian iris that were not flourishing are GONE. I have collected some shade grasses, a woodland orchid, some golden ticyrtis, a clumping bamboo, a pale pink chelone, and more. A beautiful day!!!
