Hola Everyone! Today I am sharing a few wonderful photos from a photo session I did with my incredible daughter Carolina! I would like to dedicate this blog post to Caro who has been a loving daughter and life companion. She constantly inspires me to be the best version of myself and to be a human being who respects and celebrates life; making sure to treat others the way I would expect to be treated. Thank you Caro!
We took these photos in beautiful Edwards Gardens which is a botanical garden in Toronto that was once an estate garden. The grounds of Edwards Gardens are stunning and everywhere you turn there are different types of plants, all with their own varying textures. The history of Edwards Gardens was that the area was settled on by Alexander Milne in 1817. He was a Scottish weaver and the grounds were successfully used as a farm and mill operation for over a century, even expanding up to 240 hectares in size. In the year 1944 the proprietor Rupert E. Edwards purchased the original 11 hectare Milne residence and over the years added many landscape features to the garden including rockery, ponds, rustic bridges and flower beds. He also added a 9 hole golf course. The vision of Mr. Edwards was to see the gardens eventually become a public park. His vision eventually came true when in 1955 the property was purchased by Metropolitan Toronto who have maintained the park's character and beauty since then.
I bet you after seeing all the images above you would have never guessed that the photos above were taken during the Canadian Fall. Well if you don't believe me see the image below which was taken in a different part of the garden that featured some maple trees with "fall-ing" leaves (The pun was definitely intended).
So that is the end of my blog post for this week! I would like to thank God for all the blessings he has provided in my life. I am truly grateful to be surrounded by so many amazing people (especially my children). Till the next time, have a great one!
