You can smell it in the air, see it in the trees, and hear it at the schoolyard... Fall is here! It happened quick, but, nonetheless, it's here. I love this time of year. Sometimes, it's hard to let go of the summer fun, the sandals, the shorts, and the sitting under the umbrella with a cold drink in hand because it's "too hot"! However we have lots to look forward to in Autumn. The trees and shrubs put on a fabulous show, harvesting our fruits and veggies, and seeing all the award winning entrants at the Fall Fair!
Thinking of the Fall Fair, I spoke with my friend Monica, and she had a great idea! If you haven't torn apart your annual gardens or containers yet, it's a good time of year to take some pictures and save the photos. So many times we want to re-create the same planter the next year, but just can't remember exactly how wonderfully we planted it last year! With the photos, you can bring them in, (in print or on your mobile phone), to us at Nico's next spring and we can help you identify exactly what you had and where!
Now onto planting now for spring colour! Bulbs are here! It is the best time to purchase your bulbs to make sure you pick from the best selection and you can save big time with our Flyer Sale! We have some really neat varieties and some great prices! My first favourite would have to be the "Budlight" Tulip! Now Budlight, is far from my favourite beer, but this Tulip is top of my list this year! Such a cool look, with a fresh yellow and white variation on the pedals. Another hit will be the "Graceful Beauty" Allium. The best deal highlights would be the King Alfred Daffodils, at 20 bulbs for only 7.88! Or the Rainbow Mix Tulips at 20 bulbs for 7.88!
It's a fun time of year and the best part is... The Silverbacks are back on the ice! We have a great team this year, (I think I say that every year about now....) See you at the game or in the garden,
