Behind the scene : Why this panorama was madeMy brother graduated from the University of Toronto as a teacher which is why I was 1000 kilometres from home during the window of time for this event.
Being completely unfamiliar with the city, I had no idea where anything was, or where any gardens were. It was quite by chance that I stumbled across this garden situated beside the EJ Pratt Library - if I had not seen a bench through the trees off in the distance, I would not have even thought to walk in that direction.
Not being familiar means not knowing what plants are there, their significance, or difficulty in growing/maintaining. The caption on the garden though was enough for me to consider it for this event (even though it could just as easily fit into the sanctuary or water events of the past).
The season for blooms in Canadian perennial gardens is a little later than June 21 hence the greenery, but I am guessing that while in bloom, this garden is breathtaking. It was quite a joy to photograph this serene retreat on the morning of June 24th.
