Flowers and Strawberries

What could be more lovely during the Spring Season but to have lots of flowers and strawberries?  I was in hanging flowers heaven last weekend when we visited the Hotner Greenhouse and Garden Centre in Brooklin, Ontario, North East of Toronto. The Hotner Greenhouse and Garden Centre is huge with different sections of all kinds of florals, vegetables, herbs and all other plants, ready for planting in the garden. Here are some of their Hanging flowers and Wall flowers for sale which are perfect for those who do not wish to do a lot of digging on the soil. There were so many different kinds and colours displayed on their Garden Centre.  After we finished our Garden shopping, we stopped by for lunch at Haugen's for some barbequed chicken and ribs then the best of all, for dessert was a slice of the best strawberry pie I have ever tasted in this part of the countryside. 

Hanging Flowers or Wall Flowers are perfect to decorate indoors and also outdoors. They require minimal maintenance except for some watering, sunlight and also some talking or singing to make them bloom into these beautiful flowers. 
More rows of blooming Wall flowers and Hanging flowers that are perfect for both the indoors and outdoors. 
Haugen's Strawberry pie which is the best I have ever tasted. It was baked like a tarte tatin style with no flour and not custard based. The fresh strawberries were from the farms in the surrounding area then caramelized with a syrup or gelatin like mixture. The pie was filled with strawberries and not too sweet. Then when served with fresh whipped creme, we just dug in and finished it all the way to the bottom. 

May you all have an inspiring week ahead!
