I’ve been too busy apartment hunting to get any blogging done, sorry. And while this definitely doesn’t qualify as a decorating post, it’s something I’m happy to share since it’s one of my all time favorite things about this pocket of Toronto.
The carpet of blue Scilla (Siberian Squills) doesn’t really make itself felt in the lead photo but it’s jaw-dropping to behold in person. Every year, typically closer to May, the lawn at 67 Glen Road (corner of Elm Avenue) erupts in the most dazzling display of Prussian blue: add in the yellow Forsythia and pink and white magnolias and you’ve got a fine sight for winter-weary eyes. How many years must it have taken to blanket the property so completely?
Although I’ll be moving to a new neighbourhood soon (more on this next week), I’ll probably always make a spring pilgrimage back to this enchanting corner to experience what is a sublime but oh so ephemeral moment in time.
