The Historic Gardens in Annapolis Royal are a popular tourist destination. Although now closed for the season, the gates to the Historic Gardens remain open and you can wander around at your own risk. Even in the late autumn with few blooms, I found the gardens enchanting. Welcome to week 349 (11/28/2017) of Travel Photo Thursday. Apologies for not publishing last Thursday. Indy and I moved into our condo on Wednesday, so it was (and continues to be) a busy and fun time of getting settled into our new home.

Upon entering you see these three welcoming benches and fire pit. The garden hosts a winter market on Saturdays, so I am assuming that the fire pit is lit during the market to help shoppers stay a little warmer when the air is nippy.
Annapolis Royal Historic Gardens
The afternoon light was welcoming on the meandering paths. As you can see, there is still a bit of colour on the trees. The winds earlier in the week helped to separate many leaves from the branches.
The garden is full of black and grey squirrels scampering up and down trees and simply having a grand time.
There are still a few blooms brightening things up! This is a telltale sign of how warm our autumn has been.
I love how this piece of a tree trunk has been incorporated into the garden. It reminds me of a sundial.
This is a tree huggers paradise.
There is access to the dike and the river. Just remember to close the gate so that the deer don’t get in and raid the flower gardens 🙂
Patrons can support the Historic Gardens through the purchase of an ornament. You can have your own name engraved, or that of a friend or loved one. The choice is yours!
The Historic Gardens are one of the top gardens in Canada and North America. In 2015 they won the Top Garden in Canada award. If you’re planning a trip to Nova Scotia be sure to include Annapolis Royal on your itinerary.
