Are you ready to visit Canadian gardens today? Each Thursday we temporarily exchange a trowel for a mouse, seeing what’s happening in gardens across the US and around the world. Today we’re headed northward.

First stop, Canning, Nova Scotia, to drop in on bloomingwriter Jodi DeLong, author of “The Atlantic Gardener’s Greenbook.” She’s also a photographer and the owner of three cats.

It’s fun – and instructive – seeing what’s blooming in her garden or in a nearby nursery at any particular time. I enjoyed the discussion earlier this week on the newish coneflowers – different colors and different looks. I’ve been successful with some and less so with others, so it was interesting to hear someone else’s take on them.

Then we’ll journey a bit westward to Toronto to look in on Orwin and Irena, who announce themselves as parents, filmmakers, and gardeners, in that order, in My Roots Run Deep.

Irena writes with joy and enthusiasm – about everything from a new clematis vine flowering to carrots growing well when they weren’t expected to.
