Botanical Garden

Today, I went to the Botanical Garden of Montreal.  I spent a few hours there and took a few pictures.  It was nice to see the gardens in this early Spring stage.  I was not expecting as many flowers as I saw.  Naturally, most of those flowers were in the Alpine Garden.  Those plants are on a different schedule than most others and early April is their time to blossom.  The Chinese Garden was nice and looked much more alive than the Japanese Garden.  I guess the fact that the little lake was filled in the Chinese Garden helped a lot compared to the empty pond in the Japanese one.
