A pictorial of my walk through the Royal Botanical Gardens

This morning Denisé and I spent a couple of hours at the Rock Garden, a part of the Royal Botanical Gardens (RBG), which is located on the border between Burlington and Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. This is a great place to visit at any time of year, and especially in May when the tulips and daffodils are in bloom.

Rock Garden_DSC1716The Rock Garden is a recovered gravel pit so it is in a sheltered bowl filled with pools, water falls, evergreens and a gorgeous array of plant life. Each spring, the Garden bursts into a display of over 100,000 bulbs that the RBG brings in from Holland and plants in September. After they bloom the bulbs are lifted and sold at an annual bulb sale. The RBG’s Web site is at RBG.ca.

I have published a slide show of some of the photographs I took of the garden. To follow me “pictorially” as I walk through the Rock Garden, go to my home page at Cycroft.com and follow the link there.
