The Search Continues.

I have been trying to find a certain lavender plant. It is not the bush form that you see at most garden centres. It is more in the form of s tree. I had purchased one last year but it did not survive the winter. I suspect because I failed to winterize the poor thing. The last few weeks I have been visiting a lot of garden centres, Home Depot, Jardin Serres Savrevois, etc etc etc. My next stop will be this week end at the local Wal-Mart.
My search has not been in total vain. I have found some rather interesting plants along my merry way.

This is a Patio Citrus plant.

I can bring this plant inside during the cold winter months.

Another Lily to keep the existing one company!

I found another climber.

It is a passion flower of some sort.

For my next addition to the garden I would like to find a Green Man to help the spirits of my plants.

Playing in the Dirt

About a week ago, we went to a farm called Ferme Guyon. It is like The Major Garden Centre for this area. You name it, they have it!. Without even realizing it, we had spent the entire morning in this creative idea centre.
We wandered around the nurseries, discovering all sorts of wonders.

We even found a honeysuckle plant to compliment the one that is already in our garden.

We spent a bit of time in the Butterfly conservatory and made a few friends.

We also found a few decorations to place in out garden!

After arriving home we lost no time putting things in the ground. With the weather being so sketchy, I did not want to be left with all these pots out in the rain.

The only ones not happy with the day were Napoleon and Reno who hate to miss out on all the activity.
