Going Photo Crazy at Greenland Garden Centre

Hello everyone, yesterday I spent several hours at Greenland Garden Centre just outside of Edmonton. Actually, I was also there the day before, with a friend and her Grandson. The display they had there was just beautiful, so I just had to go back there before they dismantled it. Greenland is open all year round and have a great coffee bar for those that just want to come and relax and take in their beautiful flowers and displays. They sell all kinds of things from riding boots to costume jewelry, to all kinds of nik naks for the home and the garden. One has to visit Greenland to see all the things they have, it is just wonderful to see. If I was wealthy I would have spent thousands but unfortunately I am not. The plants they sell are the best I have seen. The staff are very friendly and helpful. They also have courses for anyone that wants to further their knowledge of Gardening and Horticulture.  I also had a great coffee and chocolate cone that was yummy and went down too quickly. All in all it was a great day. I took tons of photos and I spent several hours working with my photos. I hope they like my review of the centre. If you live in or around Edmonton, Alberta do go visit Greenland Garden Centre before they take the display down, before April 10, you won’t regret it. Now, to show you some photos of my day.

More Amaryllis stuff

I went through some of my photos of the Amaryllis, and thought why not try more different stuff, You may or may not like what I have created but that’s ok, I am experimenting. It is a lot of fun to try different things. It also let’s me learn what works and what doesn’t . Here are some photos.
