Happy belated Thanksgiving to all my Canadian readers. I had hoped to say that prior to Thanksgiving but I was preparing to visit my in-laws for the holiday this year. I ran out of time. I do hope everyone had an enjoyable time with family and ate some delicious food.
So, we were in Ottawa for the holiday, I took many opportunities to enjoy my sister and brother in-law's garden. Michel and Cathy have worked very hard at creating a lovely garden. During the first few years in this home the garden grew in leaps and bounds. Every visit I was filled with envy for their enthusiasm and energy to accomplish what they have done. Michel is a plantaholic who knows no limits at the garden nursery while Cathy is more practical about choosing the right plant for the right place. Before we left for home Michel confided he will be enlarging one of the berms. Apparently there is never enough room....
I thought you might like to see some photos of their back garden.

Thank you Cathy and Michel for allowing me to show off your wonderful garden.
