Summer Stories ~ City flowers

Fall is officially tomorrow so I really need to wrap up these summer stories. Homeschool co-op starts in two weeks. Starting Thursday, I'm teaching a four week class (to a different homeschool group) on Canadian government and elections. And the weather is starting to shift to cooler temps (finally).

With fall's arrival there will be new stories to write and hopefully I'll finish, or continue, the homeschooling through high school series, because man-oh-man, I feel up to my eyeballs in homeschooling high schoolers. Homeschooling, period.

I'm experiencing my fall-schedule overwhelm, so let's look at flowers shall we?

Today's Story: City Flowers

Montreal is a city of gardens. There are community gardens in parks, gardens growing on boulevards (I still don't know who maintains those or gets to harvest those veggies), window boxes and balcony flower pots, and backyard gardens. I've found flowers all over the city in my travels. And some of my favorite finds are the back alley green spaces. Some of these have the official designation ruelle verte (green alley), and others exist unofficially as a community effort to make safe places for children to play and neighbors to connect.

    I am enjoying your summer stories and the tour of Montreal, especially this garden post. How can I share your blog ? My niece lives in Montreal and I am sure she would be very interested in your adventures.

    Wow all the pictures are so nice of last month and many people have a special camera for captures the pictures while most of the children lack the motivation to attend to their homework as it is required. Through this site reviews easily done homework just 1 hours. In any case they will not even care whether they will be chased away from school or not. That said, it is the parents duty to ensure that the children attend to their homework accordingly.
