  Summer is just around the corner and the Montreal Botanical Garden is blooming once again. Well, I should say on their behalf that some plant or other is always in bloom year-round in the greenhouses. But I am talking about their outdoor gardens this time around.

  

  The Magnolia trees gave us a beautiful showing this Spring, attracting your attention with a splash of colour, as did the spectacular Rhododendrons. We had a few nights of frost which killed off the earliest bloomers, but still they all gave us something to «ooh and aah» over! Must have been our fairly mild Winter that made all this possible…

 

 

         

        Guess now it’s time to move on, to the Peonies and Irises that are now in full bloom! They are really giving it all their worth, fighting out on who will win your attention and adoration.

 

 

        But be warned, the Roses are also beginning to come into their own, but they will bloom for most of the Summer so you will have plenty of occasions to capture their scents and beauty…

 

  So why not take a few hours at most from your busy schedule, to wander the grounds and be amazed at all the loveliness that nature provides us with? Don’t forget to bring along a «friend» to share the sights and sounds of nature! And please do take the time to stop, reach out, and let all their fragrances permeate your senses in the process…
