Yet Another Visit to Allan Gardens

On these unbearably long, grey, tedious days of winter, there is nothing like a refreshing blast of warm, humid tropical air! Barring a trip to the tropics, which is out of the question at the moment, a trip down the street to Allan Gardens is a reasonable substitute!

Have I told you all before that I LOVE the place? Well, I do. The greenhouses in the Garden are a traditional Victorian-style  collection of buildings, surrounded by rose gardens and a park full of old oaks and maples in the centre of Toronto... and a wonderful respite from the hubbub of of the busy streets, as well as the winters blahs.

So, once again, walk with me as we peer into the old greenhouses, and their riotous collection of colour, warmth, and perfumed tropical air...

Ahhh, I feel so much better. How about you?
