Montreal Botanical Garden (4 img)

Discussion in 'Birds' started by Frits, May 6, 2007.

  1. This afternoon Cafe member Dao Dang and I went to the Montreal Botanical Garden.
    The trees are only just budding. A few more weeks and everything will be in full bloom.
    The Botanical Garden is near the Montreal Olympic Stadium with its characteristic slanting tower, where the 1976 Games were held.
