Sunday morning the Quilt Canada conference ended, and I was on my own to explore the Niagara Region for three days before heading home. I started my day with photographing this lovely sight before leaving Brock University. I thought these plants were lavender, but someone else corrected me, although I do not remember the name of these beautiful flowers. What a fantastic complementary colour scheme with the purple against the yellow-greens. Still lots of highlights and shadows around mid-morning.
I wanted to see quaint places, countryside, orchards and vineyards. I made my first stop at the village of Jordan for a little bit of shopping and lunch.
It is a lovely little village with a winery, boutiques and galleries, and lots of flowers and foliage. Of course I found some hosta leaves!
I drove through the country, in the direction of Niagara-on-the-Lake, stopping at this farm stand to photograph the fruits and vegetables and stock up on my first strawberries in season.
Then it was on to Niagara-on-the-Lake, which I ended up visiting each of the three days for gelato and good food. More coming up.
