Canadian Beauty

Not an import, the orginal. His cousins hang out near our house in California.

A beautiful garden -- it typifies the region

Kerry noticed the profusion of lilacs. In California there is but one or two types that will grow. Here there are hundreds. We saw whole streets with hedges of them. The heady fragrance is amazing. There is such a range in colours; light pink to dark purple. When you pay $50.00 a bunch at the LA Flower Mart, there must be millions of dollars worth.

The true provincial flower was in a grand showing just down the street from the new GTY office.

Even the dandelions cannot hide the wonder of Spring in Quebec; most every house could have its garden in a show.
