One of my favourite things about summer is the floral bounty found everywhere. Here are some samples for you to enjoy.
The city plants pots and beds overflowing with colour and scent.
Of course many homeowners make their neighbourhoods more beautiful with their plantings.
Even some plants, considered weeds, can be quite pretty.
Too soon, the flowers will disappear and be replaced by the beauty of autumn.
I was happy to discover another beautiful park within my city’s limits. A.E. Wilson Park has it all: trails, a playground, bridges, a water park, wildlife, and meandering through it, a creek. Come explore with me.
Some areas here are quite rustic and natural, others have expansive, scrupulously maintained grassy areas. Along the trails are many benches for those who want to rest and breathe in the fresh air while enjoying the scenery.
Birds are by far, the most prevalent type of wildlife. I saw several Goose families as I walked one of the winding trails.
Some kayaks drifted lazily around the little islets within the park.
Because of Covid-19, the playground was eerily quiet. The date had not been set for the reopening of play parks as of May 28, when I last visited here.
All around were blooming shrubs and trees. Their scents filled the air.
I will come walk here again. There are more trails to walk, and sights to discover.
There was a lot of colour at the Regina Conservatory.
Irises & Lilies
Did you know these flowers grew in red and white?
And many other beauties!
Farewell from the Regina Floral Conservatory.
If you’re a fan of orchids, the Regina Floral Conservatory has many beautiful examples.
The hot and humid conditions must be just right for these bloomers to thrive!
