A Perfect View

This, in my humble opinion, is a perfect view. I could look at this spot forever. Wish it was outside my kitchen window instead of the Deliverance house, I would be happy to wash dishes forever.

It is at the Toronto Botanical Gardens, nestled in between the buildings.

Cercis canadensis ‘Covey’.

Cercis canadensis, both red and alba, along with narcissus and a beautiful waterfall.

I believe this Acer is ‘Waterfall’, perfect in form and name here.

    Beautiful Cercis, the colour is just right with the stones and the Acer, a really beautiful spot and with a waterfall too!

      I am wondering if I can convince my new neighbours with the stone house to plant a redbud, then except for both the waterfalls I will get a tiny glimpse of this look.

    You’re right, it’s just about perfect. The redbud is stunning against the rock and I love how the acer mimics the waterfall behind it.

    Lovely spot to let the mind wander. I love the weeping cercis against the stone.

    Lovely, and I think the Cercis has good autumn colour too! I’d love to see some images of the same spot in October. Christina

    and to think an hour or so north [I am truly directionally challenged!] the idea of growing Cercis of any form is considered radical thinking! Gorgeous photos Deborah!

    Although the Cercis and Acer palmatum look so nice now, wait until the fall when things really lighten up! We all redbud’s flower colour in the spring, that unique pink tight to the branches. If I only had more room in my backyard….

    wow, I’m amazed how much further along the plants are in Toronto. Leaves are just starting to form on the trees here. Love that Japanese Maple dripping down beside the waterfall. The form seems to echo the water falling.
