Sunday was such a stunning day that I couldn't resist taking a long, meandering walk through my neighbourhood before braving the ever-busy grocery store. I ended up at Allan Gardens conservatory, stepped inside and was greeted with a heavy dose of spring blooms, bright colour and lush, leafy surroundings - all under a glass roof showcasing the super-sunny day. I was truly elated to have plant life around me again, and wished I had brought my book with me to sit and read in said surroundings - something I will probably do next weekend. So for anyone agonizing through this lingering winter who can't otherwise get away: Go to your local greenhouse or conservatory and breathe in the season you're craving - it's enough to remind you that spring is just around the corner. And for those of you who want to visit via your computer, enjoy some of the photos I took below.
