This lovely scene happening this week in a client`s woodland garden!!

I`d also love to take this opportunity to say that it is against good ecological practices to dig wild populations of flora to create a garden. Please seek out local native plant nurseries in your area to acquire your native flora. I might also add that it is not a bad idea to look into their sources. The hope is that they are growing their native plants from seed, and not ironically decimating native plant populations for profit.

Allium in front of the lovely native #chokeberry #aroniamacrocarpa #aronia , in flower . I strongly recommend this native shrub for its compact shape, beautiful flowers, and highly nutritious fruit. It`s a lovely addition to a native, fruiting hedge. This one includes aronia, serviceberries, elderberries, currents, and haskaps.

Foam flower is a great native plant for a shady spot in the garden. This one is thriving beneath the very challenging environmental conditions of that oh-so-popular Norway maple so many folks have on their landscape and cannot part with for a variety of reasons. I got this beauty @gardensplus , Peterborough. Check them out!! They have lots of beautiful finds.

Our #easternredbud doing it`s wonderful thing!!! These vibrant pinky-purple flowers come out along the branch lengths right before the heart-shaped leaves emerge. It`s native, has striking beauty, and the leaf-cutter bees adore the leaves, snipping out sweet crescent-shaped patches along the edges. For me, this is true beauty and deep-joy gardening; I know I`m not the only one appreciating my yard. My garden connects me to the divinity of nature that supports my ability to live. #everythingisconnected #gardeningfornature #aestheticpleasure #ecologicalfunction #nativeplantsofontario #lowtreesofontario #nativebloomsofmay ...

I do not have the photographic ability to capture the depth of beauty in this scene. This image embodies that which I am passionate about providing as a gardener: #aestheticpleasure , #ecologicalfunction , and #ediblefusion .

Pear tree, tulips, Pasque flower. #easternredbud is putting on a show in the background. Ooo baby a thrill for the senses!!!! #fornaturegardeningandlandcare

Loving the texture, hues, and wildlife activity in this gorgeous septic garden that I built last year. Loaded with native grasses and forbs, this garden is a natural bird feeder at this time of year. It adds so much ecological value to the otherwise lawn-dominated landscape. ...
