Just in case…
We did not have rain in over a month and just when it is time for garden flinging, the rain just may come our way. We are only 30 miles across Lake Ontario from Toronto, we can see Toronto easily on a clear day, so we get a lot of the same weather. I checked the 14 day forecast for both Toronto and here and it is the same forecast. Thunder showers may be coming. But, the way the forecasts have been wrong for one whole month, the sun may just shine. I am hoping we get the rain at least and Toronto is dry and sunny.
As I mentioned before, I would show you what the gardens are doing in Niagara Falls, ON. I talked with a Parks Department worker and the annuals will be going in on Monday, June 1. It takes them a month to do all the installation. Some of the beds are prepped and ready for Monday planting. Plants are being hardened off.
You can see all the perennial beds in this post but not much is flowering yet. They are just getting around to cleaning up bulb beds, weeding the perennial beds and trimming boxwood. I did look for all the flowers I could find, so in a week, I hope you see a lot more.
If you have been following here on GWGT you have seen my gardens in each and every post, so you get an idea what might be coming your way as far as bloom in private gardens. Peonies are just starting to break. On Thursday before I leave, I will post my garden again. Plants are flowering in my garden continuously.
Take the tour through the gallery, click to see Niagara Falls Ontario, a mere walk across the bridge for me. BTW, I drove over earlier today and did pass some of the places you will see. I am not showing you the flower clock so it will be a surprise if you get to see it – I hope. I asked if they would be bedding it out by next week or leaving the colorful pansies. They likely will not change it before you see it in another week! That would be good news. Enjoy the tour of Niagara Falls Ontario I took today… these are all places you might see when you visit the Falls.
Off to the rose gardens… not sure they will take you here, but if they let you walk around, you might like these gardens. Roses are a bit stumpy, but the perennial gardens are filling out. The bulb beds you see on May 27th will be filled with annuals by a month from now.
And why you go to Niagara Falls… of course if you never saw it before, you will be taking lots of photos. You should have seen all the selfies being shot with the Falls in the background. My guess is you might shoot a few yourself.
Hope you enjoy the Niagara trip on Monday, June 8. Too bad you can’t come over for refreshments in my garden. Give me a wave to say hi.
