Pretty Bird

This is the back of the utility box which I showed you yesterday. The lady's hair from the front has gone around the corner and become a tree for the bird to perch upon. I like this artist's work and wish we knew who it was. And as you can see from all of the open space behind this across the road we are not downtown for this one  - there are no big parking lots like that in the middle of the city!

Pretty Lady

I think this is my favourite of all the decorated utility boxes which I've seen in the city. I just happened to be driving by her in the west end and did a quick u-turn to get a pic. Isn't she lovely? There was no signature unfortunately. I'll show you the back tomorrow.

Symbol Bike Ring

This is another of the bike rings designed by the students of Bloor Collegiate and installed along Bloor St W near the school. This peace symbol was designed by Gerald Holtom in 1958 for the British nuclear disarmament movement and the symbol itself comes from the semaphore signs for N and D. I had no idea it was such an old symbol!

Wearing Of The Green

This would have been perfect for St Patrick's Day but it had passed when I took this pic at James Gardens. It's amazing how those green heads of the Mallards glowed in the sun!

Mellow Yellow

Every time I pass by this house I think how pretty it looks and the snow last week really made the yellow stand out. Such an unusual colour to paint your brick house but it works well!

Little Barn Library

I was wandering through the High Park neighbourhood and spotted this unusual Little Library so headed over for a pic. It's nicely done don't you think? And it has lots of space for books.

Some Numbers

I really liked the font used on these house numbers. They seem so deco or moderne to me.
