Travel Theme: Gardens

Ailsa at Where’s My Backpack has given us Gardens as this week’s theme.

My first love is architecture but I used to travel with a woman who loved to garden and when we shared our photos, you could always tell whose were whose. Mine were all buildings, doors and windows and hers were all gardens and flowers and plants and trees. Since then, I’ve tried to take photos of flowers and gardens.

Culpepper Garden, Leeds Castle, England

Where I live, Halifax, Nova Scotia, We have a beautiful Victorian era public gardens. There is a big duck pond, a little stream, flowers galore, rare trees and other specimens of plants. There are fountains, a beautiful gazebo, statues and a little cafe. It’s a wonderful place to walk in the summer, the annual zombie walk streams through here on it’s way through the city,  and is a hugely popular place for wedding photos. Here are a few photos from our Public Gardens.
