Evergreen Brick Works And New Plantings

Cat Sculpture

Cat watches over the bird bath.

Pro tip: If you want to pick up some plants at the Evergreen Garden Market in Toronto, go early. Parking was at a premium, and several people followed me to my car when I left, and fought over my parking spot.

Beyond that – it’s a great place for native Ontario species at a good price, plus I found a lovely cat sculpture to sit next to my bird bath, just to keep the birds on their toes.

Todays new plantings:

Plus I moved a couple of things around, and put in a shallow container of water for the birds.

I really like the bleeding heart.  It’s a newer cultivar, but the whole plant has that “bleeding heart” smell that I remember from my grandmother’s garden, which seems to be lacking in other varieties.

Beyond that – everything is bird-, bee- and butterfly-friendly, which is my main goal for the space.
