House in Don Mills

A pretty normal looking house! There are plenty of suburban areas in the Greater Toronto Area. It's not all brick row houses from the 1800s!

Spring has definitely come

This is from early April but I just saw it and I love the in focus foreground and the soft focus house in the background.

Edwards Gardens, Toronto

Edwards Gardens, Toronto, originally uploaded by mtlicq.

European settlement began in this area shortly after the War of 1812. Alexander Milne, a Scottish weaver, arrived here with his family in 1817. Milne's farm and mill operation prospered for over a century, expanding to 240 hectares in size. For many years, the watercourse passing through this park was known as Milne Creek.
In 1944, Rupert E Edwards, proprietor of Canada Varnish, Ltd, purchased the original 11 hectare Milne Homestead. Over the last 12 years Mr. Edwards Introduced many landscape features into the garden including a large rockery, ponds, rustic bridges, flower beds, and a 9-hole golf course.
Mr Edwards vision was to see the gardens become a public park. Accordingly, in 1955 Metropolitan Toronto purchased the property and since then, has maintained the beauty and original character of this unique landscape.
