According to the information out front of the cottage, this log cabin is the oldest home in High River having been built in 1883 by one Andy Bell.
The first thing that struck me when I visited, in addition to how the gardens had been recovered/rebuilt was the beautiful cornflowers.
Possibly because these wonderful blossoms constituted the majority of my wedding bouquet. I had known them as bachelor buttons but you may also know them as: garden cornflower, blue cap or blue bottles.
Follow the path around the grounds and you will not miss any of the wonderful plantings in this lovely garden.
I loved how parts of this plant poked through the pickets to show themselves off away the crowd inside.
