Toronto, Ontario has lovely botanical gardens with no admission fee.  Canadians know how to do a lot of things right and gardening is certainly one of them.   It is billed as a magical oasis in the city and it is quite lovely. There are 17 contemporary themed gardens over 4 acres. There is even a vegetable garden where I confirmed that a mystery plant I planted as a remainder from my Spring plant sale is indeed Jerusalem Artichoke. This is an unusual vegetable that spreads with runners. I quickly, and carefully removed all traces of it as soon as I got home.

Here are some of the pictures on a lovely Wednesday in August.
