Blooms around Toronto

Spring blooms May 2014 around Toronto 


Working as a gardener has its benefits, blog-wise. I'm able to show readers pictures of plants found in other gardens that I can't grow in mine!

May is always a crazy time for me but I was able to take the following as just a sample of what's blooming across the city.
