What A Lawn

A summer shot of the incredible lawn around the head office of Manufacturers Life Insurance Co on Bloor St E with a view across the road of St Paul's Anglican Church. There is a huge fence surrounding the lawn but the grounds are open to the public.

With this dry summer they sure had to water it a lot.

Incredible is the right word for this lawn. It looks perfect!

What a lovely view. I'm sure developers would ache to get their greedy mitts on it.

Hello, it is a pretty spot. I like the flowers and trees, a nice green place in the city. Happy Thursday, enjoy your day!

Nice that the ground are free to walk in. Such pretty flowers, trees and lush green grass. I spotted part of the fence too. It looks nice as well.

Beautiful light in your photo. How great that the park is open to the public. Must be a great place to walk.

Geez! You think the insurance company has enough room? Maybe they need to knock out a wall or two and expand. :-)

wow, i'd say!

Oh my gosh it sure is!

That's very nice of them to open those park-like grounds to the public. Here in Eugene there would probably be homeless people sleeping on the lawn. (It is a huge sad problem here. I guess because the weather is relatively mild and there is a relaxed attitude here, live and let live. We sort of subscribe to that, but it is getting out of hand).

What a nice green space.

Karen said...

That's so green! Lots of water used to keep it that way. A great shot, but I'm not sure that green lawns are in the best interest in this time of drought.

Looks a bit like a real English lawn.

Halcyon said...

That green looks almost unreal!

I'd like to know what they use to green up that lawn Pat, mine could use a wee perk up!
