Niagara-on-the-Lake. This is one of the quaintest European looking cities in North America. The region of Ontario has a unique landscape and climate, and it has become a magnet for wineries and fruit orchards.
I love to visit this small town because of the flowers and natural landscape – but most people probably visit the wineries, restaurants, and partake in unique shopping atmosphere.
This is the most charming hotel / inn you have ever seen – these hanging baskets were ginormous!
This is the Prince of Whales Hotel – what you don’t see through all of the flowers is a beautiful horse-drawn carriage.
The medians in the town “centrum” were planted with this unified and over the top theme. As far as you could see in any direction you saw this burst of chartreuse, purple and coral.
Another beautiful planter – one of so many scattered throughout this tiny village.
These hanging baskets were on every lamp post – the flowers were nearly touching the ground!
This is a typical house in Niagara-on-the-Lake! Oh my…
And another style commonly seen there….one thing they all have in common? FLOWERS, FLOWERS, EVERYWHERE!
No my hydrangeas do not look like this in August – look at the size of the gold mound spireas!
This rudbeckia – black-eyed Susan was 4’ tall.
Niagara-on-the-Lake is a must see if you are ever in the Niagara Falls area just across the Canadian border. Canadians are so extremely friendly and helpful – and they love beautiful gardens as much as you and I do!
Happy Gardening -
