Carpet Beds, North York, Ontario, Canada, Edwards Gardens

This photo is of the West Carpet Bed (the South Carpet Bed is off camera). The floral carpet beds skillfully carry on the tradition of Victorian carpet bedding. They are planted and maintained by the City of Toronto Parks staff. They hold over 15,000 plants and take five gardeners seven days to construct each year. The "Go Canada" message is in support of Canadian athletes in the 2010 Winter Olympics (Vancouver, BC, Canada). Photo looking north.
