Dreaming of Larkwhistle

Larkwhistle Garden

Larkwhistle Garden, June 2012, Bruce Peninsula, Ontario

I’m taking a break from the cold and going to Larkwhistle Garden in my mind. Larkwhistle is a terrific garden on the Bruce Peninsula in Ontario that has been created and gardened by Patrick Lima and John Scanlan. For decades, they have opened the garden to visitors in the summer. But last year, they decided to end those public visiting days.

We have gone to this place of beauty for years since travelling to the peninsula and it remains with me in memories of flowers, birds and grace.  And with thanks to Patrick and John for what they have created and generously shared.

    I’ve visited Larkwhistle a few times. Lovely spot and a very nice general area as well.

    My mother and I have been visiting John and Patrick since they first started on the Bruce. They have made a piece of heaven out of a rocky outcropping. We will truly miss our yearly visit but we wish them well in their future endeavours.

    I’m sorry to hear that there are no more public visits to the garden! I was looking forward to seeing it this year.
