 The Governor's Garden at Château Ramezay is like a little oasis in the middle of Old Montreal. This past October we enjoyed one of our many strolls through this peaceful haven but this time to view the squash display.  To my delight there was also a small floral photo exhibit at the entrance to the garden. I thought posting some of the floral photos was the perfect "food for the soul "on such a bleak and cold day in Montreal. Regardless of the weather in your neck of the woods, I hope you also enjoy the photos. To all my friends south of the border, I would like to wish you all a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday weekend.

Our very own Montreal Melon.....who would have thought?

 Snow on the flowers.......... but too beautiful not to include in my ode to summer


  1. Wow. This place looks beautiful. It looks like you had fun despite the cold!

  2. Oh what a lovely garden! You ladies were extremely brave to go out there in the cold :)

  3. Thanks to both of you for taking the time to leave you lovely comments.
    It is a charming garden in the middle of an otherwise bustling tourist area, where you can sit and gather your thoughts. These young ladies managed to keep their smiles in spite of the weather.

  4. Hi Anna C, thanks for sharing such beautiful flowers from the garden despite such cold weather :) Well done !
