Victoria weekend we decided to head over to Jordan to hang out with cousins.
Amy suggested coming because she didn’t think I had been there when the blossoms were in full swing. I believe she was right. We didn’t have any plans other than just being with family and enjoying ourselves with good people, good food and good wine.
The blossoms did not disappoint. On Friday on our way to Niagara, we stopped along the way and I took these.
We then drove to a park that was full off Lilacs. The smell was fantastic.
Don’t we match well?? And that wasn’t even planned!
Then we drove to Niagara Park and Botanical Gardens and walked around there.
A rather small urn!! How many pansies fill this?? And Amy was dead heading them. Silly girl.
And we saw this little creature along the way.
These two pictures are of a tree called Redbud. Weird, I know, because clearly they are purple.
Maybe God had sunglasses on when he named it?
Then we saw some very cool trees.
Like this Harlequin Maple.
I so wanted those people to move but they just wouldn’t budge!! And they were not reading a Harlequin Romance either!!
So perfectly formed, isn’t it?
And then the amazing Tulips
There was a whole stretch of these beautiful trees that looked like mini carnations.
We then went to Amy and Bill’s favourite restaurant with John and Helena, called Pho Xyclo. I have no pictures of the food because we were so hungry! But if you are ever in Niagara you should try this.
We then did a bit of shopping, well, some of us did!
John, Ron and Bill were handsomely, patient!
And then, on Saturday, this happened.
Thank you Bill and Amy for always being the best tour guides and John and Helena for being the best hosts.
Until we meet again.
