I've approached this parking garage many times from the other end but finally came at it from the south side and was amazed to see all the solar panels installed on it. I'll give you some info tomorrow.

Garden On A Garage

I found this newly sprouted garden on the side of a garage. The artist is Colin Bloom - appropriate don't you think?

Old Weston

Weston is a neighbourhood in the north-west part of Toronto and was a small town that became engulfed by the big city. You can still find many of the old large homes from the original town such as this, most have been restored. For some reason it is still a relatively affordable area in our crazy real estate market.

A Balanced Diet?

I spotted this black squirrel up near Casa Loma having a bite of lunch. He had finished the apple and was having a bit of chocolate milk to finish the meal!

We have had some really warm weather this month and these Morning Glories were still thriving last week on the back wall of Spadina House. This is my favourite colour of them so I could't resist a pic!

Down In The Ravine

This is the entry point into one of the many ravines that run through Toronto. This path had been closed for most of the summer while work was done to provide drainage and to fix the fencing along the side of the ravine where the land becomes quite swampy - the dogs all love that part! It is open again now and I was surprised last Saturday that the leaves haven't started to turn yet - will keep my eyes open for the autumn colours.

Not A Real Ghost Sign

I spotted this sign recently and at first glance it looks like a ghost sign but it is actually a new sign painted on a canvas of painted-on faded bricks. So it is like a painting of a sign. Moosehead Brewery is the oldest independent brewery in Canada, started in 1867 by the Oland family and now owned by the 6th generation of the family.
