There’s no place like beautiful Ontario in spring.

  • There’s no place like this where I’ve been
  • There’s no dream like this that I’ve seen
  • And there’s no home like this
  • No other place like this for me.
  • You’re my place to know
  • You’re my place to go
  • You’re my place to see
  • You’re my place to be
  • There’s nothing in this world
  • There’s nothing like you

Magnolia

“I’ve always loved magnolia trees and their blooms—there’s something so beautiful about a magnolia blossom. It demands attention, and you can’t help but love those big, creamy petals and that fragrant smell.” ~ Joanna Gaines, The Magnolia Story

Tulips & Daffodils

Ontario Blooms“The tulip’s petals shine in dew, all beautiful, but none alike” ~ James Montgomery, On Planting a Tulip-Root

“I could hear you, talking to the daffodils and tulips, whispering to the fairies that lived inside their petals. Each separate flower had a different family inside it.” ~ Lucy Christopher, Stolen: A Letter to My Captor

Ontario Blooms

  • “Within my heart a garden grows,
  • wild with violets and fragrant rose.
  • bright daffodils line the narrow path,
  • my footsteps silent as i pass.
  • sweet tulips nod their heads in rest;
  • i kneel in prayer to seek gods best.”
  • ~ Robin Jones Gunn

Dandelions

“Most of the dandelions had changed from suns into moons.” ~ Vladimir Nabokov

“Dandelions are just friendly little weeds who only want to be loved like flowers.” ~ Heather Babcock

Lily-of-the-Valley

“I would far rather have two or three lilies of the valley gathered for me by a person I like, than the most expensive bouquet that could be bought!” ~ Elizabeth Gaskell, Wives and Daughters

Ontario Blooms“Where scattered wild the Lily of the Vale; its balmy essence breathes.” ~ James Thomson, The Seasons, Spring (1728), line 445.

  • “And the Naiad-like lily of the vale,
  • Whom youth makes so fair and passion so pale,
  • That the light of its tremulous bells is seen,
  • Through their pavilions of tender green”
  • ~ Percy Bysshe Shelley, The Sensitive Plant, Part I.

Lilac

“Lilacs are May in essence.” ~ Jean Hersey

Ontario Blooms“Winter is on my head, but eternal spring is in my heart; I breathe at this hour the fragrance of the lilacs, the violets, and the roses, as at twenty years ago.” ~ Victor Hugo

Apple Tree

“Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces, I would still plant my apple tree.” ~ Martin Luther

Ontario Blooms“Cling, swing, spring, sing, swing up into the apple tree.” ~ T. S. Eliot

  • “Therefore all seasons shall be sweet to thee,
  • Whether the summer clothe the general earth
  • With greenness, or the redbreast sit and sing
  • Betwixt the tufts of snow on the bare branch
  • Of mossy apple tree”
  • ~ Samuel Taylor Coleridge
