As July comes to an end there’s an Annual Feast at the Montreal Botanical Garden. The Millet has sprung into seeds and Sparrows gather in large numbers to feast on this once a year delicacy. If you want to observe  and admire this little ritual it’s not too late. The Millet can be found as you enter the outdoor gardens,  near the restaurant, by the Pie-IX entrance, immediately on your left behind the restaurant
