Sunflower Burst

Thank goodness for flowers! I find flowers so much easier to photograph than food. It doesn’t take much to make these gorgeous sunflowers pop.

Botanical Gardens: Lilies

The lilies were in full bloom at the Montreal Botanical Gardens in August! I didn’t know there were so many different varieties. Here are a few of my favourite shots from the lily gardens.

(Late) Spring Flowers

It’s been a cold, wet Spring. We are over half-way through May and we are only just beginning to see buds on the trees and some flowers peeking out in Montreal. I went for a little walk around the neighbourhood last weekend to see what I could find. I appreciate the flowers even more after this very long Winter and very cold Spring.

Spring? Winter? Sprin-ter?

A little reminder of what summer looks like…

I may have been a little too optimistic with my previous post (Spring Funfetti cupcakes) celebrating the arrival of spring. I’m not exactly sure what season we are going through here in Montreal, but it’s not exactly Spring weather, and it’s not exactly Winter weather… It’s not warm, but it’s not freezing, so winter coats are out. It’s not snowing, but there’s still snow on the ground, so winter boots are (still) in. It’s not sunny (in fact it’s been rather grey and overcast), but the days are longer, so sunglasses are sometimes (but not always) necessary (but only for very brief and unpredictable windows during the day). I don’t know how to feel! I hope it means that we are getting closer to the end of Winter, but you can never really tell…  Montreal has the habit of skipping over Spring and going straight to Summer. Since March is probably far too early for Summer, this makes me think that we probably have a few more weeks, maybe even a full month, of this weird Winter/Spring (Sprinter?) weather.
