A Word A Week Photo Challenge: Garden

I love gardens. I have this huge adoration of taking pictures of flowers.  In most of my travels and even just around Montreal, I love to go to gardens.

Here we are with a bundle of gardens that I’ve been to.  Anything that has flowers or vegetation of some sort in an enclosed space large or small is a garden to me. From to the lavender fields in the Quebec’s Eastern Townships…

I’ve posted about the Lantern Festival and Pumpkin Inferno last year so I linked it in case you’d like to check out those posts.

I just couldn’t decide which photos to focus on but all of these created some pretty beautiful “garden” moments for me and some pretty sweet memories.  Thank you to Sue for landing on this word in her dictionary for this week! Flipping through my pictures to select them for this challenge was so much fun and I’m just saying, she’s absolutely awesome!

Which gardens that you’ve been to do you like the most? Where was it? I’d love to hear about it!
