I want to wish everyone a safe and Happy New Year.
We are back on the Canadian side of Niagara Falls. Isn't it beautiful?
Niagara Falls, Canada was a large city. It had a pretty skyline and judging by the skyline it is quite a bit bigger than Niagara Falls, New York tho I don't know that for sure.
Some of the gardens on the Canadian side were in a state of transition. I imagine there were annuals surrounding these cannas and they were all about to be replaced with cool season kale or something like that. The cannas will most likely be pulled and stored in a greenhouse somewhere because I cannot imagine they are hardy in this area and growing them each year does not make any sense for a city to do.
Another garden not yet transitioned. I did take a few photos of the gardens on the American side of the Falls. I loved those gardens perhaps way more than the ones on the Canadian side. I'm sorry all the photos I took of the American gardens were with my mobile phone so I am not posting them. The big differences between the Canadian and American sides as far as gardening was concerned was that the American gardens were all native plants and appeared to be of a permanent nature. I am sure the Americans add annuals for color but I did not see any formal gardens displayed simply for color such as these found on the Canadian side. I really loved the native plant gardening on the American side. There were also mature gingko trees and even a female gingko with fruit on it! Yes, I did pick a fruit and taste it. It was interesting.

It's hard to get a good selfie with all three of us but we did it here in front of the visitor's center.
Happy New Year to all!
