Allen Gardens, Toronto

A few months back when it was still pretty darn cold out, and we needed a bit of a spring time pick me up, the hubby and I went to the Allen Gardens, in downtown Toronto.  It’s a great free activity to do, and you can spend a lot of time just wandering around, enjoying the flowers, ponds, and turtles.  Here are some of the photos that came out of the day.

Butterflies

I live close to Niagara Falls, Ontario, and as such, I have many opportunities to play tourist.  One of my favourite go to places when I want to practice with the camera, is the Butterfly Conservatory.  It’s a neat place, where butterflies fly freely through the air, and from time to time even land on you.  These are just a few of the many, many, many photos that I have from there.

 

Of course, where there are butterflies, there are flowers, and lots of them!

 

So, if you’re ever in Niagara Falls, make sure you check the Conservatory out – especially in the dead of winter, great place to warm up from the chilly wind outside!
