Stay-cation :: The Garden Path

As declared here in May (sorry I did'nt feature a favorite stay-cation spot in June) I am featuring another stay-cation suggestion for you to visit. This gem is only about 50km from our home. You'll have to travel a certain distance in the woods and a small length of dirt road but it sure is worth it. We went yesterday and look at the gorgeous day we picked to go.

The Garden Path ! A couple in South Range, Digby County, started gardening in 1999. They started with one small bed to see if they would like it...

... as they say ''the rest is history''. I think they liked it. The picture above is their front yard.

A few years ago they opened their gardens to the public. You tour at your leisure, stopping, admiring and snapping away as you please. You can even bring a book and find a favorite spot (I would pick the swing) and read for a while.

Ginette and Dave.
Me and Ginette.
Again, in the BIG chair.

Whoa - it's amazing! What a lot of work. And I have never heard of it - thanks for the heads-up! :)

Kim - yes I remember Ginette watching the Big Comfy Couch all the time.

Sherrie - if you are looking for just a quiet, relaxing afternoon of walking around admiring lovely flowers you would love this. There is a cool little play area for kids with a 3 level tree-house.
