Les Jardins d’Emmarocalles in Ripon, Quebec is about a one hour drive from Ottawa. We visited the gardens in late July of 2013. We got there early afternoon and the clouds were already looking ominous. It rained on and off and we spent a lot of time running for cover and waiting for the rain to stop. I was not able to see all of the gardens but I did capture a few of the different varieties of Echinacea (cone flowers) in particular. They also had some donkeys that we visited and a small farmers market. I would have liked to use my tripod and my husband did carry it around for me but it was too crowded and the paths too narrow. So I cranked up my ISO and shot handheld. I also captured a little girl who was having a lot of fun and did not mind the rain at all.
