I am sad to report, GARDENS4U is closed for the season. This week I will be adding evergreen boughs to the planters on my front step and in front of my garage. Let me know if you would like me to do the same for you here in Kanata. Follow this link EVERGREEN to view pictures of ones I made up last year.
Next month I will be selling beautiful Christmas centerpieces in December here in Kanata. These arrangements have amaryllis bulbs as their focal point and make a unique gift for your mother, mother-in-law, neighbour, hostess, etc. The amaryllis bulbs have been forced to bloom during the Christmas holiday season. This picture is from last years batch:
The gift of time is the best gift that money can’t buy. Now that my sons are older with busy lives of their own, when holidays like Mother’s day, Father’s day and our birthdays roll around, I suggest gifts of their time instead of materialistic things purchased from stores.
For example, yesterday for Father’s Day, my sons picked up and delivered a truck load of cedar trees to our cottage. Their dad had been talking about filling in our lot line there with cedars to increase our privacy.
After the work was done, it was time for relaxation and a BBQ before the boys had to head back to the city.
I suspect as we parents get older and our sons have families of their own with increased responsibilities and limited spare time, these gifts of time will be even more meaningful…
