It is too bad that the irises don't last longer but they certainly are spectacular when they are in bloom. This is actually a compact miniature iris - love the colour.

Good Fun

After leaving my dentist's office I spotted yet another decorated utility box, this one in the Yorkville neighbourhood. The painting on this one is very subtle with a pale background of green images and then pale grey images on top. It is hard to make out but the words Good Fun are repeated all over it.

A Modern Church

I pass by this church fairly often and always admire the lovely modern style it has, especially the steeple. This is St Ansgar Lutheran Church and I think it was built in the 1970s but couldn't find any info on the architect.

Dirty Nose

This female Mallard had just come out from rummaging around in the bottom of a muddy pond and it looks as if she needs to do a little grooming!

Pretty In Forest Hill

I took this pic last week and then realized that I have shot this scene before but from the other direction last year (HERE). I think the tulips were at their peak this year and you also get a view of the stone wall around the back garden.

Coach House

This building was the coach house for a funeral parlour and was built in 1910 and has heritage protection which means that the exterior can not be changed without a long approval procedure. It is has been in the midst of a conversion to a super residence for the last few years. It even has its own parking spot behind that fence - a rare thing downtown!

Service Dept

When you have a 1960s bank building and you gut it, add rusty metal sheets to the wall, steel tables, and comfy banquettes you can end up with a great place for a few beers and something to eat. And since this is Canada, always have a hockey game going on the TV in the background!
