Autumn Flowers

It's nice to remember that winter will be over and the world will bloom again. This wild assortment of plants was actually on a narrow boulevard in the Yorkville neighbourhood! Even late in October there was a lot of colour there.

"I'm Sure I Put Something Here!"

This black squirrel was spending a lot of time digging around in the snow looking for what must have been a tasty morsel but I never did see him find anything. He must have things buried everywhere but has no memory of what is where!

Hand Pump

I hadn't seen one of these in years until I spotted this one in the apple orchard of Spadina House back in October. I was afraid to give it a crank so I don't know if it still works!

Ravine Path in Snow

I went back to the ravine while we still had some well worn snow to give you a look in winter. The footing is still a bit tricky but the path is well used by people with dogs despite that!

Glidden Ghost Sign

I spotted this ghost sign along a very narrow walkway between 2 buildings so it was hard to take a decent pic. If you look carefully it is for Glidden Endurance Paints - Varnish and the bottom line says J P Parker which must have been the name of the store where the paint was sold. And right below where it says Glidden there is small writing that says Everywhere Everytime. The building now houses a barber shop.

September Flowers

Our winter weather has not been tempting me to be out and about very much so when going through my archives this flowery pic of Casa Loma which I took in September really caught my eye. I can hardly wait until spring!

I found this mural on the side of a tattoo parlour and it has the look of a tattoo about it don't you think?
