Spring seems to have sprung here in southern Ontario. We really have had an unusually mild winter this year, so this comes as a nice surprise. This past weekend, the weather was positively balmy. If I didn't know better, I could have sworn it was August!
It is a bit rainy today, however, so Centennial Park Conservatory in Etobicoke is great to visit if you would like to get a jump on seeing some beautiful spring flowers. This special place will leave you feeling calm and relaxed after even a brief visit. It is so soothing to view the colorful plants, birds and fish, listen to the trickle of the water and enjoy the sweet, fresh smell of the warm air.
There is a large white bird who has his own cage. He is really funny, often cawing loudly and jumping up and down for attention.
Toronto has another similar conservatory downtown (Allan Gardens) which I am sure is just as delightful.
