Colour Paradise – Closed Door Photo Opp.

Thelma works at Colour Paradise, a greenhouse just outside Kitchener. The owner has agreed to let us wander with tripods, etc around the facility. Monday, June 2, after 6:00pm to catch some nice light while we still have lots of plants on the benches. In return, Thelma is asking that you say thank you in two ways: 1) buying at least $10-20 of plants or perhaps a gift card and (the part Denise is most excited about) 2) sending a couple of images to the greenhouse for their use ( The greenhouse is located just a few minutes west of the Sunrise Centre.
