Just a Magpie

When taking flower pictures I must admit that I'm first attracted just to the bright coloured ones, I'm just a magpie.  So when we stopped at the Town and Country Garden Nursery just outside Owen sound yesterday, my first pictures were just of whatever was blooming, the brighter colour the better..

While we were still outside the roses immediately caught my eye, especially this beautiful red one.

But it was this deep pink one behind it that was wafting a beautiful fragrance.

There were some interesting colours in Hydrangeas.

 And a stand of a few annuals that they still had in stock.

Great colour on this Petunia.


And I like the bright red of these Geraniums.
 
But couldn't safely get into the greenhouses which had significant bumps across the thresholds, or had the aisle blocked like this - a common problem in crowded stores.

   This was actually back down the road at the Ice Cream Place, a beautiful Spirea in full bloom.

  3. Having helped take care of my mother-in-law when she was in a wheelchair, I quickly learned that seemingly small obstacles can be an absolute barrier to anyone in a wheelchair.

  5. I realize the blooms easily catch our eye but there's much more to a plant than blooms.

  6. Like you I am attracted to colors as well but the Magpie connection never occurred to me. A Mad Hatter perhaps or even a Gadfly, but a Magpie. Well that sent me to Google to see about this Magpie fella and it told me there the Magpie was the most intelligent bird in the world. I'm telling ya Stew we Magpies gotta stick together.

  7. Garden centres are a hazard for people walking on two legs, let alone for occupants of a wheelchair.

  11. They always look lovely at the garden center ... but if I bring them home ... a week later they're always looking... not so lovely ♥

  12. I always like to just go and look...or maybe I should say I enjoy looking even if I don't buy. But it is seldom that I come home empty handed.

  15. My husband left me last year after 25 years of marriage (he turned 50). It has been the most difficult year of my life, but full of lessons about myself and what life and marriage are all about. I am passionate about marriage and i didn't give up on my husband. resides in USA, I entered online in search of advice on how i can amend my marriage while i was at work. I saw so many positive reviews and nice feed back about how a Doctor called Robinson.buckler@yahoo.com has been wonderful with his work. I gave a shot to make contact with him via his Email and he assured me that my marriage will be peaceful and i believed in his words. 16 hours after he finished work, my husband came back home pleading and now, we are living peacefully again. Get in contact with him if you need any help.
