Have you ever stopped to relish how lucky we are that the majority of Canada experiences four distinct seasons every year? We get to enjoy so many delights, depending on how long each one lasts. This year, now that Spring has finally arrived, it feels like we’re already sliding into summer, with temperatures this week reaching 30 degrees!

The grass is green and lush and gardens bursting with life! They’re not only a reminder of the sheer joy that outdoor living can bring, but also the multitude of opportunities we have to embrace it right here in Toronto. Whether you create your own outdoor oasis at home, head to your local green space to soak up the sun, or while away the evening on your neighbourhood outdoor patio, this is a unique time of year - and a wonderful one to be a Torontonian! What does the coming Summer have in store for you?
