Highly Commended, The Beauty ofP lants
Just before Christmas Toronto was hit by the biggest ice storm in three or four decades. All the trees and plants were covered in a thick blanket of clear ice, and I decided to go for a walk in High Park, which is the most beautiful park in Toronto in any season. I came across this amalgam of small plants and high grasses; the orange and red colours caught my eye, and the flowers looked like crystal or a Christmas decoration.
