Are we as Canadians predictable?
Poinsettias at Christmas, mums in autumn, hydrangea for Easter. Is it the plants and flowers we love or the sentimental change of seasons. We can count on rich coloured mums and vibrant orange pumpkins to usher us from long summer days to cozy autumn evenings. A fresh bouquet of yellow tulips on the kitchen table reminds us that summer will arrive …..eventually.
Love it or HATE it the strong scent of paper whites will soon fill the air, Just as jingle bell rock hits the airwaves. Personally I admire these traditions. Seasonal flowers and plants are a beautiful way of telling time. Before you know it little ghosts and goblins will be tricking but mostly treating!
