Arts & Crafts

I pass this Arts and Crafts home in the Forest Hill neighborhood fairly often and finally stopped for a pic. I was actually in this house several years ago and the interior has been lovingly restored - it is a real beauty! And the fence separates them from the neighbour's underground parking.

We're Ready!

This was taken about 10 minutes after yesterday's pic and judging by the white carriage I think they were getting ready for a wedding at Casa Loma. In the meantime you can see the head of the wee daughter of the woman tending to the horses as she sits in the carriage out of trouble.

Horses For Special Occasions

As I walked past Casa Loma a couple of weeks ago these two beauties were calmly waiting for some action. They had been groomed and were ready for a special occasion! More tomorrow.

Autumn Garden

Just a small section of the grounds at James Gardens. I do so love the autumn light!

This mural is found under a railway overpass in the northwest part of the city. I had seen the artist working on it and talked to him a few times and then he disappeared before the whole thing was finished. This central section is quite recognizable as a homage to Monet and it is rather nice that the city has since added the bench.

Buddha In The Sun

I pass by this Buddhist centre fairly often and they always have a lovely display of flowers and this past week the September sun made the whole garden glow. It looks as if this may have been a large house in a previous use.

Don't Fall In

This is a pic from James Gardens taken a few weeks ago. The open grassy area in the middle is the section I showed you yesterday with the faux stonework set up for a shoot for a TV show. Anyone approaching the duck pond immediately attracts the attention of every duck in the area hoping to be fed and since this young guy had a few pieces of bread he was a real attraction for them. There are signs everywhere saying not to feed the animals but few people pay any heed to them!
