Summers In Montreal

Summers In Montreal

Summers in Montreal are truly the very best! The featured photo in this blog was taken from my Montreal garden this morning as my peonies, one of my favorite summer flowers, are finally blossoming:)  Summer is definitely one of the best times to come check out our city, or just enjoy a staycation if you live here.  I thought you might appreciate a list of the summer festivals happening from June to September 2016. Maybe I’ll see you around town.
