|Mt. Albert Garden and Horticulture Society had a bus trip on Saturday that my husband and I took. We saw a lovely country garden in Caledon hillls that had twenty-four acres of managed forest that included a garden centre and organic perennial nursery. Lorraine Hunter and her husband Rob were very gracious hosts that led us on a guided tour of the property, identifing all the plants that they grow. Many are started by the owners from seed. We had a delicious catered lunch and after lunch we were let loose to buy plants before our bus took us to destination 2. I had to have the Daylily called Desparado and a Crocosmia called Lucifer. |
From the top: The flower bed out at the road; crocosmia 'Lucifier' ; Daylily 'Blueberry Delight'; a lovely maiden sculpture; double Shasta Daisy; Asiatic Lily; hardy prickly pear cactus and sedums; Daylily 'Desparado" and the garden sign. We stopped at another Garden Centre called Lost Horizons and of course I bought another couple of plants. We had a great day out. Happy Gardening Week. Valerie
