We are still blessed with hydrangeas in the garden. Here we are at the end of September and our gardens still have blossoms. Many areas in the city and surrounding areas have not had any frost yet. I am enjoying this extra time with the flowers!
We are surrounded by autumn colors…the hills, the trees, the parks and our gardens.
Thank you so much Laura for helping in the gardens. The hedges and bushes that you have been working on, look great. We really appreciate all the time and commitment you give to Wellspring. Thanks again!
The other day we were working in the gardens and a couple drove in to the yard. They said they had come to see the garden, and especially to see the hydrangeas. Well, you could not imagine how happy I was to hear this. Someone had come to see our hydrangeas! That certainly made my day! Here are some of the blooms they saw that day!
We finally have a week with lots of sunshine. The flowers are beaming too!
The gardens survived the hail, high winds, storms, and tornado warnings that we have had the last couple of weeks. I know some gardens in the city did not fair as well, but luckily at Wellspring, our gardens were spared.
Here is a walk through of what has been blooming the last two weeks. The colors have been tremendous.
Even though Wellspring Calgary is unable to be open to its members at this time, the gardens are still open. Yesterday, Laura, Don and I spent the day there, digging in the beds, weeding, deadheading, watering and happily tending the beds. We spent the day amongst these beauties!:
We will continue our walk through the garden today. I hope you are able to join me, wherever you are… with your favorite cup of tea. Enjoy the colors and the sunshine!
We are back here in the garden and it feels so good. Through this unprecendented time, I hope you have all been able to keep safe and healthy. Since Wellspring is unable to open this season, due to COVID-19, I will share images from the garden here, throughout the season, so that you will still be able to take a walk through the garden.
Take a deep breath…..and now, let’s start our walk…
