From the Gardens of Le Lupin by 

Le Lupin is a B&B in Pinoteau Village, Mont Tremblant, Quebec, Canada and I’ve been staying there every summer since 1992 when I went to the first Blues Festival up in the mountains.

The gardens are a treasure trove of flowers and I always spend the early morning hours wandering around with the camera. So many different kinds!

This year, Sylvie was very concerned because the “maudit deers” had been getting into her gardens and there were very few flowers because they’d all been eaten

Pierre, on the other hand, was pretty laid back about it and said, “Ah, Mike. The deer, they were here first.”

This is a collection of the remaining flowers, some domestic, some wild.

I hope you enjoy it.

In love with Ma Nature! Always have been, always will be. Let’s keep her safe, eh?

    A perfect day to see this lovely collection of yours, Mike, as it’s raining cats and dogs here in Toronto…I think I agree with Pierre.. the deer, they were here first… so funny and so true… yet I understand Sylvie’s point of view also…..Just a wonderful collection and your description adds a bit of humor to it too!

  • Thanks for the very kind words and the fave, Kat! So greatly appreciated. A dismal day down here, too. 7 degrees and raining off and on. Delightful.
    Sylvie was not impressed with the maudit deers, I can assure you. I only mentioned a little part of her tirade which I got as soon as I arrived at the BB! She had to withdraw from the Beautiful Garden contest, from what I understand.

  • Many thanks, Deb! I think you would have got a kick out of Sylvie, too. She was not happy!

    This is fantastic work, Mike – if I had to chose just one month I think it would have to be September – absolutely, blinking marvelous xx

  • Many, many thanks for your very kind words, Mattie, and many thanks, too, for the lovely compliment of the “fave”! Don’t tell anyone, but I haven’t a clue what September’s flower is. It wasn’t in any of my books or favourite ID sites. So I called it a Primrose because it kind of resembles the Evening Primrose.
