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’.
