Yesterday we took a little drive over to the Ornamental Gardens, that adjoins the Experimental Farm in the city. For two summers in a row we spent a lot of time here, but this summer we've been busy doing other things! The weather has been so incredible that we've been hanging out at the splash pad at least twice, three, even four times a week! Because of that, we missed the lilacs, the lily of the valley, the irises, the flowering cherry trees, etc. However, we didn't miss the roses this year. Oh my, the smell of the gardens is amazing at the moment. There are roses bushes, upon roses bushes, upon roses bushes - maybe I should have planted a rose bush in our little front yard garden! Lilah was thrilled to see the fishpond back in action again - she rather enamoured with the two frog statues that sit and "Spit out water!" - her words! She watched the Gnomeo and Juliet movie a few weeks ago - her first movie! And since that, she has decided that we need 'Gnomeo and Juliet' statues for our little front yard garden! Somehow, they remind me a little too much of those tacky Irish Leprechauns! Heh!
