Quelques fleurs au Québec

Amidst hunting for a new apartment and the general hustle and bustle of the beginning of the new semester, my parents and I made use of the long holiday weekend for a short trip to Québec. For once we did not make it to any specific garden-themed destinations, but there were still some lovely flowers by the wayside.

Meadow flowers

Beds of dahlias

Apart from impressive landscapes and quaint architecture, I think for me the highlight of the trip was a Tarte au sucre bought at a farm stand on the Île d'Orléans. Basically a maple sugar pie... Delicious...
