Four seasons, a thousand gardens
As soon as the first buds open, Quebecers rejoice, as spring has finally come! A world of blooms soon follows, adding color to the landscape until fall. In summer, especially in July, when flowers burst in a myriad of brightly colored petals, Québec’s gardens are the place to be when it’s time for a break. Make a day of it and bring a picnic!
