Spring blooms at James Gardens, Etobicoke, Toronto

Tulips, redbud, fritillaria spring blooms at James Gardens, Etobicoke.


Whenever I visit my client Dale to tidy up her gardens, I try to spend time at James Gardens nearby. It's a public (municipal) park with small gardens and beds throughout which I've profiled in past posts titled "Lovers of bedding plants: get thee to James Gardens!" and "Toronto's James Gardens, in Technicolor".  While I knew tulips and narcissus were likely on display now, I was really more interested in capturing some pictures of the blooming redbuds. 


And I wasn't disappointed!

I hope you're enjoying a wonderful spring, especially after the dreadful winter we had.
