An unexpected garden

Heading along the St. Lawrence River, on an afternoon excursion, we came across a historic estate and garden, Domaine Joly De Lotbiniere, near the small town of Lotbiniere.

The summer estate, built in 1851, served as a summer home for a prominent Quebec family for 5 generations (almost 200 years).

Today, it's a National Historic Site of Canada, operated by the Foundation supporting the estate.

The gardens were lovely.

  1. Those gardens are wonderful! A nice mix of native plants and favorite garden perennials. The slope of the land is beautiful, too, and they did a nice job of planning the plantings around it.

I enjoy hearing from fellow nature lovers and gardeners. Let me know your thoughts.
