The Sights and Sounds of Spring 

    Were you curious to learn whether April showers would bring May flowers? We certainly were and the month of May certainly did not disappoint in that regard.

As a matter of fact, there were so many beautiful sights from the month of May that showcased the spring months at its best that we actually had a difficult time deciding which topics to highlight.

    In the end, nature won out and here we are sharing some of the most beautiful sights from the world of nature during the spring months. Our first photos features some very pretty white flowers from around town that captured our attention.

    Next, some pretty pink cherry blossoms that bloomed near our town stole the show.

    Not to be outdone, this month the Toronto Botanical Garden offered some splendid floral offerings as well. Below are just some of the marvelous blooms that we saw at the garden this past spring.

    It goes without saying that tulips are always a welcome sight.

    No doubt, when a professional plants some flowers as they do at the Toronto Botanical Garden, their creations are a level above the rest of the crowd. Here, some colorful tulips bloom peacefully among the other flowers.

    As always, the Toronto Botanical Garden showed their expertise by displaying a wide assortment of flowers during the spring season.

    Aside from the flowers that bloom in nature and at the city's botanical gardens, spring is also the time when plenty of stores start to carry flowers in their buildings as well. We are not refering to  the bouquets of flowers that are available year round, but rather the perennials and annuals flowers that start to become available around this time.

    Plenty of flowers that come in hanging baskets are available at this time of the season as well.

    Here, some purple blooms offer a colorful alternative to the usual assortment of pink and red flowers.

    Another side of spring is that it usually means that we have company. Particularly company that loves whatever flowers or plants that we decide to plant in the gardens this year. Around the city, sightings of not just squirrels, but rabbits have been quite frequent and they have now become an annual visitor to our gardens.

    In fact, they have become so comfortable around our grounds that sightings of rabbits lounging around and relaxing on their stomachs on our front yard as they nibble on whatever greens are available has become a common sight.

    If they're not happy with the greens in our yard, they are often munching on our flowers. Here is a recent sighting of a rabbit next to some of our formerly beautiful tulips. One can only imagine how delicious those tulips must have tasted for them at breakfast time.

    Finally, how could it be spring in Toronto, Canada without some Canadian geese? Certainly, as one looks around town, there are plenty of sightings of newborn geese flocking with their parents.

    One thing is for sure. Like them or not, the geese are here to stay. They are an integral part of the Canadian landscape.
