I paid a visit to one of the larger plant nurseries in my neighbourhood. I lost count of the number of greenhouses under one roof. It's huge! The place was swarming with people stocking their flower and veggie gardens for the coming summer, although these pics make it seem like there was no-one there but me.
All the perennials are outside and the tender colourful annuals are displayed inside the greenhouses. Most people spend quite a lot on annuals for their flowerbeds, and of course, the tender plants don't survive the severe Canadian winter.
The heavy scent of blossom hit me as I walked into the greenhouse. And the colours are stunning.
I'm not ready to buy annuals yet, it's quite cool at night and we can still experience an overnight frost in May here in Southern Ontario.
However, I did buy 2 lily bulbs... and FYI Baby update: Not here yet!
