On the recommendation of ikebana student, Patti V., we visited Harbour Breezes on the Eastern Shore of Nova Scotia. It's a place that sells lilies and irises.
The lilies were in full bloom! We did not intend to buy any plants this time but the owners were very kind and told us to feel free to roam around and take pictures. So we did!
They practically filled one side of a hill with lilies and other flowers!
The colours were, of course, incredible....
....and there was a good view of Jeddore Harbour too!
Also, close your eyes and simply enjoy the myriad of scents!
Don't forget the Japanese irises!
Reminded us of Ogata Korin's Kakitsubata folding screens. They're depicted in the 5000-yen note too!
Other blooms could be seen too!
We had a delightful time! ...and now we know where to buy beautiful flowers the next time we get into our gardening mood! :-)
