Summer Flowers

What’s better than summer flowers? Very little, I think. While taking these I was discussing with Zara who was with me that I’d love to take photos of plants for a living – for National Geographic or something. Of course I’m also super terrible at remember and identifying plants of any kind so I’d be pretty shit at it. Ummm in this shot I have the exotic purple flower…lol. I do know that the orange flowers are tiger lilies (Zara may have told me that)! These were all at the farm we went to pick blueberries at last week. They had a whole row of flowers just before you got to the orchards and they were just breathtaking. Hope you enjoy my flower shots and if you care to fill me in on their names, I’d love to know.

Montreal Botanical Gardens

Botanical Garden (75)Last week I showed you the amazing event Mosaicultures Internationales that happened at the Montreal Botanical Gardens but that wasn’t the only event happening when we went. They also had their usual Fall tradition of paper lanterns in the Japanese area as well the gardens were still full with flowers and life. Me and Victor have been before to the lantern festival and it’s really wonderful walking around with the lanterns glowing everywhere. This time however we were pretty exhausted from the crowd by the time it started to get dark so we checked it out in the daylight before heading off to grab pho. I thought I’d show you guys a few pictures I took just walking around the Botanical Gardens. I love walking around for hours even if it means my feet will hurt the next day. I hope this long weekend me and Victor go on a little bit of an adventure if it’s not raining.

Mosaïcultures Internationales Part 1

Mosaïcultures Internationales (12)Mosaïcultures Internationales was an event featuring 50 living sculptures throughout the Botanical Garden happening all summer long in Montreal. Me and Victor were very excited to attend but kept forgetting and putting it off. Last weekend was the final weekend so we made the decision that we simply couldn`t let it pass us by. Zara joined us again on our walk through the event as well. We had fun walking around and seeing the giants, I think everyone agreed the Mother Nature sculpture was really the stand out. My favourite was the giant coming out of the ground and throttling the snake and the tree one. The only downside was it being the last day as there were so many people there is was very hard to really enjoy it but we managed to despite that. Enjoy the first half of Mosaicultures, tomorrow I will have another set of phtoos of these amazing statues!
