June blooms in Toronto

June blooms in Toronto 


More sights from various gardens I've visited during my work hours so far this month. Summer is upon us with the past cruel winter a distant memory.

Some of these flowers you'll likely recognize immediately, others maybe will take a while to recollect. I'm fortunate to come across a wide range of perennials, shrubs and trees everyday. 

If I can only remember to bring my camera!
