Walking Toronto, snow edition

took my camera. this is what I saw.
1. no socks, asleep in the bank entrance
2. no service. of course. snowstorm, therefore no service.
3. Earthlad. Really? is tagging a necessary step to art?
4. I need a new sound system. I am checking out all the options.
5. Gus the barber, getting ready to go home. A neighbourhood legend, and my friend.
6.Small colourful imprisoned things
7. Snow falling on cedars. What a great name for a novel...or a band...

Glad the old girl is back. Thanks.

July Manitoulin Island

Manitoulin Island is so far no one will come visit me when I go there. It is surrounded by Lake Huron, and you have to take a ferry for two hours to get there. The forests and alvars are pristine and untouched, and all kinds of wonderful things live there.

Walking Toronto

Edit....I have deleted some images because it makes me nervous with this many hits on one post...Hiking downtown through Kensington Market, through Chinatown and then home. A beautiful sunny spring day.

Happy Easter, happy whatever pagan spring things you want to do

(viewed 600 times)
Every spring I go to Montreal to see Facto and the people I grew up with, at the annual BBQ. We all show up, some bring music, or their kids, or food, cake, lots of cake this year...old friends, family, and in Canada, a way to say we made it, it was an awful winter, and hey, have a drink, we're all still here. Coming home was an adventure, the train got stuck, we sat on the track for three hours and were bussed to Toronto, and finally I make to the subway, so tired and kinda pissed off and there's this guy in rabbit ears.I have nothing but respect for a big guy who is PROUD TO WEAR BUNNY EARS.

I always thought Facto's bowls needed a foot

(viewed 624 times)
Facto makes the most lovely thin bowls with metallic glazes. Light as a feather. I keep berries, acorns and snail shells in them. Today I decided the bowls needed a foot, some elevation, so I put them on the things I brought home from the forest last summer. It was a balancing act.

My seeds sprouted!

I am growing swamp milkweed for Monarch butterflies. I started seeds a week ago and they ALL germinated. I have a swamp milkweed farm now. Hundreds of them. I think I might be in big trouble when they get bigger.

an early spring sunny day in Toronto

The sun comes out. They are filming the tv series 'Beauty and the beast', bare branches reveal a Montreal Canadiens fan, construction rampant, a shy Toronto policeman, and hey, the tourists are back.
