Montreal Botanical Garden: visiting an urban jungle

I have recently moved to the wonderful city of Montreal, and today we ventured to the Botanical Garden in the middle of the city. This is one of the most important plant collections in the world, with over 22,000 plant species, numerous themed gardens, and ten exhibition greenhouses. I gravitated towards the tropical greenhouses, and they were full of incredible palms, bromeliads, orchids, enormous leaves, bright colours, abstract patterns. Here are a few pictures. P1040735
