  6. This looks like an absolutely beautiful place. Is it a public park with great gardens, or a designated botanical garden, or something in between? Though I guess what it is labled does not matter considering how lovely it is.

  12. Thanks for your comments everyone.

    Les, Edwards Gardens is located in Toronto and is a public garden adjacent to the Toronto Botanical Gardens. It is a beautiful place, well worth a visit if you are in the city. Sadly, three dogs are not allowed in this garden.

  15. I feel like I've just walked through the garden too after seeing all your lovely pictures. I particularly like your captures of the blue mist, the pink dahlia and the shot just above that pink dahlia with all the colours filling the frame.

  22. Those masses of colorful flowers among the weeping willow trees are just gorgeous!

  23. That weeping willow is spectacular! It makes the youngster (25 years old) in my own garden pale in comparison. It must be very old judging by the huge girth of the trunk. Gorgeous closeups of the many different and shrubs flowers and the planted up beds are so colourful and full of beautiful specimens! What a wonderful place to have spent a lazy, summer's afternoon! They must employ vast teams of gardeners to keep everything so well maintained! I love that blue mist shrub! What a beauty. I've never seen it before.
