Time to Plant, The Camellia, Thunder Bay, On

It's almost time to start planting seeds for Garden blooms! Do you start your own plants from seed, or do you buy most of your plants from a Greenhouse?  Plants are so rewarding...just plant, water, fertilize, and voila! They reward you with endless blooms all summer long!

Using the right soil mix for starting seeds is a must. Are you starting your seeds in your house? Once they sprout, watch that plants don't get too leggy as they stretch towards the light. You can also transfer plants to outdoor cold frames, depending on the type of plant, and the temperatures outside.

Pansies are one of my favourites, looks like a master painter painted their petals. and they can take colder temperatures.

Of course, Morning glories are nice too.

And Dahlias are nice too!


Don't forget to plant some flowers for your Cutting Garden.

All work and no play, The Camellia, Thunder Bay

 Hello all! Some days you just want to eat all the sweet stuff...... for Breakfast! Why not?

 Would love to sniff in a L'Occitane shop, the Verbena , the Lavender......

 Tulips make anyone feel better! Go get a bunch for your desk, and make up a love note from a secret admirer.

 More Tulips...sigh..

Happy Friday! The Camellia, Thunder Bay, On

Happy Friday everyone! Do you have those days where you wish you were somewhere else? Like here looking at the tulips in Lisse, Holland, at Keukenhof Gardens... Of course, the -25 temps. here in Thunder Bay  have something to do with this...

 Wish I was here .... enjoying the bouganvillea blossoms at Gran Bahai Principe in Mexico...

Wishing that the birdies would return... I know they are here, but the yellow finches  turn kind of grey in the Winter, and it's so cold , they are hiding today. They love thistle seed so I should refill their feeders..

We have Willow Wreaths for sale in the Shop...these go quickly, so just saying..if you want one.. call and order or put 1 on hold. 

 You can enjoy the Garden all year round with this wreath ...made with Peonies and lemon leaves from our very own Gardens!  


 I have to remind myself that LIFE IS GOOD! This pillow is in stock at the shop, a great addition to your decor, and also a nice pillow for a Gift for someone special!

However, at this moment I am supposed to be working on Purse Bouquets for a adios! 
Have a great Friday!
