If you caught my post earlier this week about my trip to Niagara Falls, then you know that was just a stop over on my way to Toronto to visit family. Visits with family usually consist of catching up and eating. But one afternoon that I was there for my long weekend away, I went to the Royal Botanical Gardens outside Toronto. As many of you know, I love flowers so a botanical garden is a great place for me to spend a few hours!
The gardens were really nice and I wasn’t sure what to expect when I went because it is towards the end of the summer so I wasn’t sure what was in bloom. Luckily there was still a lot to see. What’s a little strange about these gardens is that they are so far apart. For example, we started off at the main center for lunch and explored the greenhouse. Then, we wanted to go to the Rock Garden and it’s not just a walk over to the section but you actually have to drive over. And I’m not talking about driving through the grounds, I mean on main roads and even over a bridge! Although I found it strange for it to be so spread out and disconnected, I still enjoyed the few hours we were there! Here are a few photos!
There were more sections to the gardens but the main center and rock garden are all we had time for. I’m glad I was able to go!
P.S. outfit details in an upcoming post!
