When you care for a group of six children under the age of 5 for ten hours a day all year long, you deserve vacation time. This summer, my family and I will be visiting the Saguenay region and relaxing along the fiord. We are planning on taking long walks in the forest and boat trips.
Each summer, we visit a different region of Quebec with our children. When they were younger, they enjoyed creating their own herbariums. I would buy the necessary material (small book, scissors, glue, blotting paper, crayons, etc.) and they would fill their herbariums with the fabulous treasures they found throughout our trip. In the end, they were proud of the flowers and leaves they had added to their book after they had been laid flat to dry. These herbariums represent wonderful souvenirs of our trips. Of course, I used this project to introduce them to the native plants of each region.
Personally, I have never been able to resist visiting local nurseries and purchasing a special perennial plant. In my backyard, I have plants from the Lac-Saint-Jean region, the EasternTownships, the Lanaudière region, Charlevoix, Quebec, the Montérégie region, and (very soon) from the Saguenay region. When I look at them, I remember the great vacations we enjoyed as a family.
For this reason, I thought it may be a good idea to offer a few gardening suggestions that will help make sure your garden is cared for during your vacation.
Enjoy your sun-filled vacation!
