Niagara-on-the-Lake blossoms

Ontario's wine country is also famous for fruits and in spite of the polar vortex the trees are starting to blossom. Bright pink flowers are filling some of the orchards with beautiful colours while many of the other trees are just starting to bud, so peak bloom should be within a week I would think. This is from our trip on May 3, 2020.

The Niagara-on-the-Lake area is one of our favourite destinations for day trips. We head to the Lakeshore just short of Port Dalhousie, run up the Welland Canal to look for Great Lake Steamers and then go into NOTL to check out the blossoms and a winery or two.

One of Algoma Central Shipping lines boats passes under a lift bridge as it heads from Lake Ontario to Lake Erie. This bridge is just beside the Garden City Skyway (QEW)
