seeking green

(viewed 1062 times)
I have been chained to the city for the summer. I bike around looking for secret green places. The University of Toronto has a brilliant small forest inside a courtyard. It's kind of beaten down. Guerilla gardening time.

Fake window, real clouds

(viewed 1286 times)
I had to get my car fixed so I was in a strange part of town. The shopping mall had an Arizona theme, stucco walls, and an arcade along the shops (like Bologna or Taos). Appropriated architecture. There were lots of windows like this, fake windows, which I found fascinating.

Toothpaste slime

(viewed 1008 times)
Last summer I found this on a log. It is Lycogala epdendrum, toothpaste slime, or wolf's milk. It also can move. I mean to go back and sit there long enough to see it move. The world of fungi and slime is fantastic.
