The Rock Garden
Elizabeth was fascinated by the rock garden. I would not mind to have one. I never would have to cut lawn again and Lizzie does not mind weeding a little bit. However, she did not support my idea.
She wants to lay down in a perfect lawn without any lovely yellow flowers in it to take sun bath. She knows about the problems with all the pesticides but she cannot keep her fingers completely of them.
Did she not get any good ideas in the "Royal Botanical Gardens" how to achieve a natural beautiful lawn without using excessive poison?
A pleasure to see
Sicher auch beliebt bei allerlei Tieren!
We live in peace with all the animals who found a refuge ein our little garden and I think they also made a peace treaty with each other.
Many of them became names by Elizabeth and she considers them to be family members.
So far the all follow our unwritten house rules.
Not included are the insects. I was hoping that the birds will take care of them. Unfortunately they are getting lazy and steal our berries.
Be prepared to do lots of walking. Once I was told that there is shuttle service available between the different sections of the garden but Elizabeth did not mention that. I would be forced to use my car which means every time a new parking fee.
I hope the management is not so money hungry that they cannot find a solution for handicapped visitors!
Luckily seat benches with a nice view are provided in different locations
A little creek or a pond is an attraction in every garden - not only for humans. An eye opener for me was Japan. Unfortunately we have always to go to other places to enjoy that.
Elizabeth was exited too!
The clear water acts like a mirror
I could watch the scenery for a long time and relax. The Hamilton - Burlington area is full of pleasant surprises
End of September a few days away from the closing time of the park
Art work - but according to Elizabeth you are allowed to use it
The gardens are a smoke free area, but you must not starve. There are coffee shops and a tea house where you can get also food and even craft beer and wine.
Certainly beautiful in every season!
A place to relax
The Japanese artist is right
Ontario has many lakes and faces big challenges to help them clean. Certain organizations provide support this task and in addition to safe the remaining marshland. On a few places even new ones could be created.
Elizabeth is right. The art work is really an excellent addition to these famous gardens. I think I could spend easily a whole day here.
