Side Entrance

This is the side entrance to one of the large homes in the Annex neighbourhood, not the main entrance! It is quite wonderful isn't it?

Celebration

On Canada Day which is July 1, we will be celebrating the 150th anniversary of the Confederation of Canada which the government has been promoting as Canada 150. Everyone seems to be getting in on the celebration - even the cat on this package of toilet tissue!

Iris Season

It is too bad that the Iris season is so short since they are so beautiful to see in all of their different colours. This purple one is a traditional favourite.

Squirrely Garage

This is yet another garage door from the same laneway I have been showing for the last few weeks - there are a lot of murals along this laneway. Our squirrels are all grey or black so there has been a bit of artistic license used here but I quite like this one. The dandelion not so much but the pansies are cute.

Music In The Neighbourhood

Last weekend on Saturday, the Seaton Village neighbourhood had a wonderful free musical event going on for the whole day. There were live performances by over 130 acts at just over 30 locations which included front porches such as this one, garages, laneways and a stage in the local park. Hundreds of people were out to enjoy the beautiful day and the great sounds and many brought their own chairs which they set up right on the street!

A Hunter

I took this pic earlier in the year on a cold day before we had any leaves out so this Peregrine Falcon has all of its feathers puffed out. The lack of leaves also made hunting a bit easier for it too as it seemed to be very successful at catching its prey.

Pink Door

With a door this colour there is no way that you will head to the wrong house when heading home. I quite like this vibrant pink!
