Picnic In Jardin Botanique, Montreal

Bon Jour! I am now in Montreal, Canada on a business trip. As I arrived over the weekend, I decided to take advantage of the lovely summer weather to have a picnic lunch in the Botanic Gardens, which is a well-worthwhile visit. Of course, I was most interested in the herbs and vegetable plants but the poisonous plants were really fascinating too. I find it very interesting how the Jardin Botanique management allow the poisonous plants to be still "within access" of the public, although there are warning signs aplenty. In Singapore, the management would probably be too fearful that someone would eat the fruit and get poisoned for this to happen!
