This waterfall is in High Park. A large park with a zoo, restaurant, a train to take you around the park, and many other amenities. This is a manmade waterfall fed by rain and an underground spring. It is one of several small waterfalls feeding each other from the spring or the pooling pond.
This is Toronto’s CN Tower, a tourist attraction, on a hazy afternoon. I was at Tommy Thompson Park looking for a different perspective to capturing the tower’s image that most people would not take the time to do since it was a 1 1/2 hour walk to get to this spot.
Crown Imperial is an impressive, spring flowering bulb that has been cultivated since the 16th century. It grows very quickly to a height of 3-4 feet and adorns itself with a crown of nodding, bell shaped flowers topped with a pineapple-like tuft of bright, glossy green leaves. The flower clusters last about 2-3 weeks. One downside to these exotic looking plants is that the bulbs have the fragrance of Eau D’pew. The upside is that the skunky aroma tends to repel moles and other rodents away from your bulb garden. This information is from, http://www.thegardenhelper.com I captured this flower in the Perennial Border at the Toronto Botanical Gardens on Mother’s Day! The flowers do not have a scent.
I went back to check on the crocuses that had been encased in ice and most of them had died. The ones that were still alive were being covered in snow from a late spring snowstorm. I went back a couple of days later and found that all of the crocuses had died.
