Sunday's adventures...


I took the Toronto Botanical Garden Tour yesterday, (should have been pulling my own weeds, but what  a great tour.  I not only enjoyed the beautiful gardens of 22 homes, but walked a million miles up hill.  Here's a sneak peek.
Lots of statuary, and lots of green. Many of the gardens are shaded by large trees. And if you have a seat in many of these gardens...



this is what you see.

Wow ... what a treat, dear Irene! I love statuary in gardens. We could've sat in those two chairs and talked for hours! You'd have brought the snacks, right?

Looks beautiful. I'd rather be there than pulling weeds!

I've never been on a garden tour and judging from your post, I'm obviously missing something.
P.S. More fun than weeding, I'm sure.

OK Blogger comments is giving me fits today. I just wrote a longish comment to you and it's the third Blogger blog today that's given me an error message and told me the service isn't available! Anyway what I said was, ryc on my blog a few days ago, no way could your dear Daniel be anything like the rude and blasphemous Daniel who was attacking me on my blog. That Daniel is a sick soul who seems to get his jollies by calling people horrible names from the safety and anonymity of his computer in the UK. He's still lurking on my blog every day but hasn't commented again, but if he does I don't mind as long as he keeps the language clean. Your Daniel would never be so crude and disrespectful ... in a million years or a million lifetimes. I don't even know him but I know you, and that's why I know you'd never have to even wonder. But I know you already know that. I'm going now ... gots work to do! Happy Monday, dear Irene!!!

Those are gorgeous! It looks like it was well worth the walking.

Just beautiful! I wish I had the energy to maintain a garden like that.

Is that the lake? These is so pretty, and it looks like you had great weather. I love going to botanical gardens! It may get too hot here soon, so I better get to it.

Thanks for sharing.

How pretty! I love that idea of a statue nestled under a tree.
