Grey is great, but a grey day is not, so to banish the ‘blahs’ I visited Allen Gardens Conservatory in downtown Toronto for a boost of colour.
The Victorian-style cast iron and glass conservatory, the ‘Palm House’ was built in 1910. Over the years extensions were added on and 5 greenhouses covering over 16,000 sq. ft. now exist.
Rare tropical plants and flowers from around the globe provide a spectacular showing and a big hit of ‘happy’.
What a good idea to banish the cold and gray! I’m going to do it.
Have a wonderfully ‘colour-full’ time!
Great minds like tropical settings alike! I captured my last visit on my blog too. Has it really been two years since I’ve visited? Thanks for the warm reminder – must stop by again soon. Beautiful photos!
TY Susan. It is a wonderful place to wander and relax. I will check out your blog post on the Conservatory.
Neat. Brings back memories.
So glad I could share a nice corner of T.O. with you today! Very cold here but bright.
Definitely one of my favourite spots to visit in winter — especially in Feb and March, when I’m just plain done with bad weather.
