On Display Now, 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Artist Amanda McCavour reimagines the Toronto Botanical Garden’s soaring second-floor mezzanine as a field of floating flowers, blending fantasy and document, imagination, and observation. The installation shifts the perspective of a traditional prairie, inviting viewers to walk underneath—rather than through—a floating field of flowers.

Amanda McCavour is a Canadian artist who works with stitch to create
large-scale embroidered installations.


On weekends you’ll enjoy warm vibes around the outdoor firepit while roasting s’mores. Marshmallow and S’more kits will be available for purchase in the Garden Shop. Relax with a warm drink while tuning in to our Spotify garden playlist.
