  • And these are the plants I got from @evergreen_brick_works today.

Helenium, Eutrochium and Eupatorium from #NativePlantsInClaremont

Love planting Ontario's native plants!

I need to visit this nursery now!!!😀 Planted them when I got home although I thought I should wait until next weekend since I have several chores I need to do... Sooo, after planting them, I really didn't have much time to relax, rushed to do everything, cooking, ironing, all the little chores...why weekend goes by so fast?? I want to garden but at the same time I want to relax a bit, too but usually you have to choose one... Oh well, that's a life of working woman! (Have you heard a song called 'Working Woman' by @ruthiefostermusic? It's such an awesome song!!) But then I remember my high school teacher said 'Don't say 'I don't have time to do this or that, if you truly want to do it, you make time!' So I shouldn't really complain, right??😉 Anyway, I'm looking forward to the next weekend to work more in the garden and probably visiting another nursery again (oh dangerous!😂) Then the next next weekend is my vacation, woohoo!! 💃

そしてこれが今日買ってきた植物達。

ヘレニウム、ユーパトリウム2種(こちらでは一つはユーパトリウムではなくEutrochium、ユートロキアムにラテン名が変更したものですが…) 苗はオンタリオ州のネイティヴ・プランツを扱うナーセリーのもの。

ネイティヴ・プランツに興味があるので、嬉しい!

このナーサリーにも行かなきゃ!! 本当はいろいろやらなきゃいけない家事もあるから来週末まで待つか、と思いつつ、結局家に帰ってからすぐに苗を植えました。

でもそしたらその後、急いで料理やらアイロンかけやらの家事に追われてゆっくりする暇なし。

週末ってどうしてこんなにすぐに過ぎ去っちゃうのかしらねー!? 庭作業もしたいけど、ゆっくりもしたい…でも普段は両方やるのは難しくて、どっちかを選ぶしかないのですよね。

ま、それが兼業主婦の定めですかね…? ちなみに英語では兼業主婦をワーキング・ウーマンと上で書いていますが、 @ruthiefostermusic の同名タイトルの曲、聞いたことありますか?

すごくカッコいい曲なのでぜひ!

忙しくて○○する時間がない、と思うと、高校の先生が「○○する時間がないと言わない。本当にやりたいことならやる時間を作るべき」と言っていたことを思い出します。

それは本当だよなあ~、なので文句言ってちゃだめよね、私。

でも来週末もまた庭作業するし、ナーサリーにもまた行く予定(危険! 😂 )なので、それは楽しみ!

そしてその次の週は休暇とってるしね!

ということで、明日からもまた頑張って仕事しますか! And these are the plants I got from @evergreen_brick_works today. Helenium, Eutrochium and Eupatorium from #nativeplantsinclaremont Love planting Ontario's native plants!

No. 24 Many Monarchs
🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋 Have you noticed how many Monarchs are in our gardens, woodland edges, and fields this year? In our little garden just outside my den window (where I write and work) we had a veritable Monarch nursery. Every milkweed plant had numerous caterpillars and we found three chrysalis' without even trying. It seems to be a banner year for these iconic butterflies! 
Earlier this week I was at Audubon's Hog Island Camp with Doug Tallamy who delivered three wonderful presentations illustrating the importance of native plants to biodiversity. If you've heard Doug speak, you know how well he explains the importance of native plants to biodiversity - illustrated through the fascinating life history of Lepidopterans (moths and butterflies). Lepidopterans have developed specialized relationships with our native plants over millenia, but non-native introduced plants are so new on the scene that they don't function in the ecosystem, and even harm it by out-competing native plants.The most familiar example is the Monarch Butterfly’s dependence on milkweed as a host plant. Without native milkweed plants, Monarchs cannot reproduce. As a general rule, alien (non-native) plants do not support our butterflies and moths because their young (the caterpillars) cannot eat the leaves.  Nearly all land birds feed their young caterpillars. Therefore, if you want to support thriving populations of birds in your landscape you need to have a lot of "living birdfeeders" (native plants). Convert areas of your lawn to shrub and tree plantings and watch the place literally come alive with butterflies, birds and so much more.
