One of my Favorite Places on Earth

Most of the photos in this blog were taken by yours truly at the Botanical Gardens in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.  This place is like heaven for someone like me, who is amazed at the Earth and its environments and everything it has to offer.  It is filled with beautiful flowers, structures, and many friendly creatures.  My favorite pictures in this gallery are the ones from after the rainstorm where everything seemed so much more vibrant.

There were plenty of these little snails crawling around.  They were especially friendly after the rain storm.
