As I write this post, it is now officially the first day of summer. When I took these pictures earlier this afternoon at Rhododendron Gardens in Mississauga, Ontario, it was still Spring.
Spring has been cooler and rainier than normal, and the trees are lapping up all that moisture. Let's hope it continues. Last summer's near drought stressed many of our forests and gardens.
If you're up for a road trip, or biking the Waterfront Trail through Mississauga this summer, do stop for a while and stroll through Rhododendron Gardens. It's free, there are lots of benches and shady trees, the rose bed is being planted as we speak. There's even what's termed a 'comfort station' - a building housing the restrooms!
