Gardens And Summer

More garden and flower shots today. This can be found in the northeast edge of the Glebe.


While this garden is downtown. The property owners have this unusual railing as part of their garden.


Down at Dow's Lake, the plantings in Commissioners Park are very different from the Tulip Festival.


There were even mushrooms growing near those flowerbeds when I took these shots.


In Little Italy, these snowball bushes looked in good shape.


These flowers were outside St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church downtown.


While these sunflowers were across the street from Southminster United Church, in the gardens outside the Sunnyside Library.

  1. Lovely flowers, yet there is a remainder of the summer.
    We already have an autumn sensation.
    The first picture is beautiful, but my favorite is the sunflower.

  4. Great shots - there's something serene about gardens and flowers. But not the fence, which looks like a crocodile's dentures.

  9. Sunflowers are my favorite summer flowers, but I like the rest as well.
    We're having some nice late summer days at the moment, but one can almost smell autumn isn't far away anymore.

    @Orvokki: the garden at that library is always filled, but sunflowers are a big part of it- they're my favourite example of sunflowers in the city.

    @Halcyon: end of summer means fall, which means winter's coming!

    @Tomas: sometimes it does!

    @Mike: it's the only fence like that around here I know of, and I've passed by it often enough that I wanted to photograph it.

    @Marianne: thanks! So do I.
