Flowers in #Toronto Allan Gardens

I couldn't wait for spring flowers and assorted blossoms so I went to the crystal palace known as Allan Gardens Conservatory, especially after posting about the aboriginal mural called "All My Relations". The six greenhouses are full of a stunning variety of plants and flowers with seasonal displays for Spring, Easter, Summer, Fall and Christmas.
It was perfect; cold and sunny outside, warm and humid within the greenhouses full of plant type things, some of them green and some of them all colourful in their blooms of many colours. You can visit every single day of the year from 10am to 5pm.
"Allan Gardens Conservatory is a major landmark and tourist attraction in downtown Toronto. It's historic, cast-iron and glass domed "Palm House" was built in 1910 and is designated under the Ontario Heritage Act. A botanical gem in the heart of the city, Allan Gardens has a permanent collection of exotic plants and beautiful seasonal flower shows. How to get there: Allan Gardens is located on the south side of Carlton Street between Jarvis and Sherbourne Streets. It is accessible from the College TTC station by taking the Carlton streetcar East or from the Sherbourne TTC station by taking the Sherbourne bus South. Limited free parking is available off Horticultural Avenue."
