I love conservatories. I think it’s amazing to be able to see so many different types of flora from around the world right at home! I’m especially in love with desert plants, so it comes to no surprise that whenever there’s a chance to go to Centennial Conservatory, I jump at it. It’s not busy at all during the weekdays and it’s the perfect place to take your time and soak in all the nature.
There are 3 different sections in the conservatory: the south wing (my favourite section) is for arid plants such as cacti, the middle has an assortment of tropical plants and a turtle pond, and the north wing houses local flora that changes frequently, depending on the season.
These photos are from the beginning of March, at a time when I was feeling pretty low; call it travel withdrawal or seasonal depression (since it was still really cold), but I really needed a dose of greenery. This must have been a lucky day because the sun was shining so brightly, making the colours pop so much more.
I felt so much better.
Centennial Conservatory is located in Etobicoke and open everyday from 9-5. Admission is FREE!
