|Garden Hall Courtyard, North York, Ontario, Canada, Edwards Gardens|
This photo is of the Garden Hall Courtyard. The sunken courtyard provides a natural amphitheatre for outdoor gatherings and may be used independently or in conjunction with the Westview Terrace (in the background) to which it is linked by a stone bridge (the four steps at the left go over water). The trees, shrubs, grasses, sedges and perennials in this garden display year round colour, interesting texture, form and fragrance. Collections of Japanese maples, heathers and other acid loving plants make this garden a magnet for plant lovers. Photo looking east.
