Blooming beautiful at the Manotick Library

Perennial geraniums in the garden at the Manotick Branch Library

If you have visited the Manotick Branch Library during the growing season (late May to late September) you may have noticed (appreciated, loved) the garden around the entrance of the building.  You likely may have thought that this maintained by the City of Ottawa, but then you noticed the plaque near our bookdrop:

That's right.  This garden, among many locations in the community of Manotick, has been created by the Manotick Horticultural Society for 13 years.  Before this, there was a smaller garden and hanging planters that a member of the Society (former long-time library volunteer Dea Lyall) maintained for many years.  These days, the garden is maintained by a small team.  Two of them (Jane and Josephine) can be seen below working on the garden:

Their volunteer service is a major conribution to the beauty of this community, and it is appreciated by everyone visiting Manotick.

You can't argue with the results:
