Nature Merlin's Hollow English Garden Just in Time for Mother's Day

Merlin’s Hollow English Garden Just in Time for Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day visit reminiscing. Merlin’s Hollow English garden, what can I say, it’s a garden full of hidden flowering treasures, crawling and flying creatures, and calming nature sounds. Okay, once in a while a crow interrupts with a sound equivalent to a drum beat.

“No two gardens are the same. No two days are the same in one garden.” ~ Hugh Johnson

I find it interesting that this time of the year yellow flowers dominate and they definitely dominated at Merlin’s Hollow English garden. There were purples, pinks, reds and whites, but just like dandelions happen to dominate many places around the Town, the garden was abundant in beautiful flowers of many shades of yellow. Perhaps there is a connection between dandelions and daffodils, and an early spring.

I have been visiting Merlin’s Hollow garden here in the Town of Aurora (Ontario) since 2011, rain or shine. I always made sure to visit at least twice out of four openings per year. I don’t mind the rain. I don’t mind the cold. I do mind the heat a bit. But any weather is great for photography since it brings out different views and perspectives. Apparently there are over 2,000 different flower species in the garden. They all bloom in phases. One visit is not enough. Each visit is different. There are four smaller gardens within Merlin’s Hollow English garden. Do I have a favourite one? Of course not, each has its own character dressed with combinations of different flower species. They are all beautiful. They all have unique architectures, and many smell good.

It seems only appropriate to publish some of Mother Nature’s creations for Mother’s Day. On a side note, just want to emphasize that last year around the same time I was wearing a winter jacket, and today you know for yourself how hot it was. Happy Mother’s Day to all the mother’s. You are all the best!
