It has been more wittily than charitably said that hell is paved with good intentions;
they have their place in heaven also.
Robert Southey (August 12, 1774 – March 21, 1843)
Art is not what you see,
but what you make others see.
Edgar Degas (July 19, 1834 – September 27, 1917)
A room hung with pictures
is a room hung with thoughts.
~ Joshua Reynolds (July 16, 1723 – February 23, 1792)
In celebration of 25 years the Strathroy-Caradoc Horticultural Society Garden Tour was held Sunday, July 14th, 2019 from 10AM – 2PM.
All proceeds will be donated to the Women’s Rural Resource Centre.
Starting at 10AM on Sunday July 14th, 2019 volunteers at the Library were selling Passports for anyone who didn’t take advantage of the $8 Passports sold prior to the date.
An amazing contribution by those who opened their yards for the community to walk through, all the volunteers, and sponsors.

Procrastination is the thief of time.
~ Edward Young (July 3, 1983 – April 5, 1765)
I believe that true art is universal in its appeal.
~ John McCormack (June 4, 1884 – September 16, 1945)
Annual Garden Tour of the 5 acres donated by the Cuddy Family to Fanshawe College is a bargain. Only $5 for a tour of the gardens and to walk at your own pace after the tour.
The only downfall is that this is the only weekend that the gardens are open to the public to view. Many of the flowers are either past their bloom (tulips, narcissus) or not yet blooming (Rose Garden).
At the end of the tour there were 2 greenhouses filled with plants for sale at excellent prices.
If a tree dies, plant another in its place.
~Carolus Linnaeus (May 23, 1707 – January 10, 1778)
During my recent tour of the 2019 Canadian Tulip Festival we saw that several trees had been destroyed by storms in the last year with nothing by large stumps left as a reminder of their greatness. This oak tree stood tall with branches outstretched, not yet starting to sprout leaves.
Plant trees as an investment in the future.
Every flower is a soul blossoming in nature.
~Gerard De Nerval (May 22, 1808- January 26, 1855)
