Metis Gardens

Most of you may have never heard of Metis Beach but to my family and i it is our home away from home. Located in the Bas-Saint-Laurent region, it is about 4 hours from Quebec city, or 7-8 hours from Montreal depending on traffic of course! The first things that most people will notice when they arrive to the region are the incredible views of the water, the beautiful homes in a variety of colour and sizes, and then it hits them. The gardens….everyone has the just most spectacular garden!

Now I know what you may be thinking everyone who lives in the region must just a have magical green thumb, but alas, it is not true. Sure people love gardening there, and for most it is a passion, but you could abuse your garden all year round there and still end up with the most wild untamed jewel.

The Metis gardens are located just a few minutes from Metis Beach in Grand-Métis and is an internationally renowned horticulture facility.It is a place the tis not to be missed if you have a passion for gardening. The Himalayan Blue Poppy (Meconopsis betonicifolia)can be found in the gardens, but only during the peek summer months. I have included the link below so that you may explore further, along with a few personal shots. Enjoy!
