Every year at this time I make a trip to the Royal Botanical Gardens in Hamilton. This winter they have an exhibit on chocolate with some taste testings, if you can make it through the crowd.

A visit to the Mediterranean room is also a must which holds tropical plants. This garden has its ups and downs, and this year it was ok. Some of it has to do with timing. I try to get there when the jasmine is in bloom and I always seem to miss it. Too early this year.
This year was the Glass under Glass exhibit in the Mediterranean room which features glass pieces from local artists. There were some interesting pieces which are following below.

This is what it looked like while were enjoying ourselves.It is actually snowing in the photo but it is hard to see. Needless to say the snow was gone 24 hours later.
