Allan Gardens!

Welcome!

This is my first post on my first blog.  Welcome and thanks for reading!

This blog is a showcase of my experiences in a new city – Toronto. I moved here a few weeks ago and my original thought was to start this blog on Day 1 of my residence here. However, technology (i.e. one of the big Internet companies) failed me; therefore, THIS is my first entry….Day 26. I have some catching up to do 🙂

I visited Allan Gardens about a week after moving here. I have been there before on previous visits to Toronto (I used to live in Barrie and felt the need to ESCAPE BARRIE every once in a while – haha) but I never become tired of the place.

It’s free (which is always a good thing) and the floral exhibits change with the seasons. They had an autumn display when I went (which included a slightly creepy little girl made of flowers and moss – see photo below) and soon they should be installing the holiday season-themed poinsettias.  It is a great place to go when you need a diversion; it’s a little oasis in the heart of the city. It is also a very WARM place to go on winter days when you might happen to be walking around the cold streets of downtown Toronto.

Stay tuned!

  1. Welcome to Toronto! Enjoyed reading your post (it reminded me it’s time to get to Allan Gardens for the Christmas display – thank you!!) and thank you for the ping back 🙂

    The Toronto Islands are one my favourite green spaces to the visit in the city, when the weather warms up again!
