Tourists from all over the world flock to Niagara-on-the-Lake, a lovely town on the Niagara River just a hop, skip and a jump from Niagara Falls and right across the river from New York State. My husband and I stopped by for a short visit on our way home last week from the U.S.
Sidewalks festooned with flowers
Festive and welcoming, the many containers were filled to the brim with well-maintained flowering plants. It was a pleasure to walk along the main street with a camera.
The town must have a large staff to water plants and remove dead blossoms.
When I took this photo, there were three horse and carriages lined up ready to take tourists for a 30- or 60-minute ride through town and a short way beyond.
