Doesn't it feel like the city totally blooms in the summer? Not only does it seem like Montrealers finally emerge after the winter, but the flora and the fauna do so also. This is why we sought out some flowery around in Montreal for you to check out this summer, whether it be for new Instagram content or just to add a little colour to your day.
Whether you love roses, tulips, lilies or any other type of flower, all flowers are nature's wonders of how something so simple can bring such joy.
Can you be-leaf it?
And the most amazing part is that because we know they won't last forever, they get us to get out there and enjoy the beautiful weather while we can.
Trust me, these spots are so breathtaking, you'll want to snap some pics to show your friends just how magical they really are.
So to help you to see some colour to your life and to your feeds, I thought I'd help plant the seed and find some of the most amazing places near Montreal where you can see some breathtaking flowers.
