sketches and anticdotes about my interests and travels

Large perennial gardens are a rare thing in recent years given the level of care and associated cost of maintaining them in top shape. There are a couple in Ottawa and Maplelawn in Westboro is always worth a visit.
The irises are still going strong in many locations, but I think they've been cooked off in the open sun of the Maplelawn Garden. Even the poppies, usually tolerant of heat are starting to fall apart.
