I found a few projects for future consideration while on the tour.
This garden shed was just steps from the house. The owner was dubious about the location at first but now appreciates the convenience. Why do we tend to put them at the other end of the garden? It is also home to a crowd of mason bees. (I have no idea what a group of mason bees is called, ? anybody)
I'm always on the look out for a rose arbour to copy. The Salish Sea as a background doesn't hurt.
I do like paths which actually lead somewhere.
Especially if it is to somewhere like this.
I wonder if they bought new cushions for the tour.
These gardens on the tour made good use of existing structures. Many rural properties have weathered buildings left behind from early homesteaders. It reminds me to honour the work of previous hands.
With pioneers in mind, I'm off to volunteer at our local Canada Day celebrations.
My international readers may or may not be interested in a definition of a Canadian:
-someone who knows how to make love in a canoe.
Whatever you are doing today I hope you have fun.
