From threatening rain storms to actual thunder storms, this week has been a roller coaster of climates. Looking at the weekend forecast, it finally looks like we’re in for some beautiful weather. A weekend to spend with the family. A weekend to catch up on your favourite movies in theatres. A weekend of road trips. And, a weekend full of gardening.
It’s that time of year. The time to dig up your weeds and get down and dirty. Grocery stores, nurseries and markets are beginning to sell soil, seeds, bulbs, plants, herbs and hanging baskets. One of my favourite aspects of gardening is organizing my planting space. From figuring out what colours match best, to determining where to hang each basket, the real beauty is in the layout.
Here are a few colours, plants and looks I’m going for this spring.
What are your plans this long weekend?

Hello everyone. My name is Meaghan DeClerq and I am a freelance photographer. When I held my first camera I had an epiphany – I knew that photography would become a larger part of my life.
I graduated in 2013 from the Media Studies program, emphasizing in Image Arts, at the University of Guelph-Humber. Although I am not as talented as the other contributors when it comes to writing, I hope I can showcase my love of photography.
Those who know me know how much I adore food photography. No matter what food is on the table, I have to photograph it. It is important to note that when I say photograph, I mean moving plates around until I got the right lighting – leading to many cold dinners and angry family members.
Outside of my passion for food, I enjoy many styles of photography, particularly portraiture and commercial. Regardless of the style, what I love most is the creative freedom. Whether it’s being your own food stylist, picking a wardrobe or location, photography lets your work shine. I hope you view my work as what it is meant to be – creative freedom. Allowing the colours and textures to take you somewhere special and different from everyday imagery.
