A Garden Stroll

We spent the holiday weekend visiting family, and feasting on a traditional Thanksgiving dinner - turkey, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, corn and for dessert, pumpkin pie. After seeing my parents, we took the boys to Rosetta McClain Gardens. A picturesque park hidden in the city, overlooking Lake Ontario.

It was past six o'clock in the evening, and we had about an hour or so to take pictures; and to take a garden stroll. There's a waterfall, a gazebo and a magnificent view of the lake.

I was hoping to capture autumn colours but instead I found pretty flower beds of begonias, geraniums, carnations and red calla lilies.

It's hard to resist but how can you not smell the flowers?

Perhaps, we'll just have to wait another week for the fall colours to arrive.

Until then it was a wonderful way to end the Thanksgiving weekend!


  1. Thanks for the sharing.. The flowers are so beautiful... Relax one's mind.. :) The garden here is not as beautiful though..

  2. Our neighborhood is still pretty green - but we get to drive up the canyon to see its glory.
    Soon here... it's barely beginning. :)

  3. Beautiful! Happy Thanksgiving! So....yeah. Now I want Thanksgiving to hurry up and get HERE! lol Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm Tasty!
