Abundance

Pink Tree

Spring in Toronto, May 2013

We’ve had a week of sunshine and warm weather in Toronto–like a dream of love.  This has given way to rain and cooler temperatures which will make the plants quite happy.

The gardens have been bursting with flowers. Magnolias, redbud trees, flowering plums, tulips, daffodils, grape hyacinths, forget me nots, periwinkles and violets have greeted me throughout the neighbourhood.  Two days ago, the yellow green maple flowers began dusting the sidewalks and lawns.  And at the Brick Works and Todmorden Mills, the sun and leaves of budding trees have formed canopies of light.

These have been joyful days to be alive amidst birdsong and the return of vibrant colour.
