Colourful Scenes From Allen Gardens
Boris and I took my mom to visit the Allen Gardens Conservatory for a brief visit on her birthday. It was a grey rainy day, so it was the perfect spot to wander indoors and look at colourful things. It’s been a million years since I last visited the garden, and I find it much more interesting as an adult than I probably did as a child.
It’s one of Toronto’s oldest parks with tropical plants from all over the globe inside five greenhouses covering 16,000 square feet. It was much larger than I remembered.
My favourite of all the greenhouses was the Cactus House full of an amazing variety of unusual cactus and succulents.
Now that we are back home again, I am enjoying looking at these colourful photos as the days continue to be grey and rainy in Vancouver.
