Welcome

Welcome to my blog. Here I have tried to capture the adventures of our little family and the trials and tribulations of our never ending garden project(s). Take a look around and leave a comment if you wish. Thanks for stopping by. Jer.

Goshiki Kotohime





On the way thru Niagara on the Lake to visit my folks on the weekend, we stopped at a nursery that I have been wanting to get to for a while. It is called Mori Gardens and it is one of the best that I have been to. They have a great selection of Japanese Maples and other rare plants.
I was on a limited budget and could only go with one this time, so I chose a small Goshiki Kotohime Japanese Maple. Should get about 4 ft x 4 ft and has some nice spring colouring on the leaves.
Definitely have to make it a routine to stop here on the way thru.

I love all those japanese maples. I've been waiting two years for my first, and well, to have a perfect spot for my first. Can't wait to put it in sometime (weather dependent).

Thanks for flagging Mori Gardens. I've always wanted to visit it as they're one of the main suppliers at my local plant store.
