A Winter Flock

This is just part of the large flock of Mallard Ducks who spend their winter in the small pond in James Gardens in the Etobicoke neighbourhood. There is always a patch of open water here even during the coldest part of winter due to a small stream that runs into the pond and despite all of the signs asking people not to feed the wildlife many come by and toss them bread every day. In the past I have seen some Wood Ducks with them in the summer but never during winter.

A Helping Hand Up

This cool handrail was spotted on Spadina just south of Casa Loma. I love its style!

Casa Loma Walkway in Autumn

I showed you this walkway beside Casa Loma back in the summer and thought I had better show it in autumn before I start showing deep snowy pics. People walking along here have just climbed the 110 steps up from Davenport Rd and are often a wee bit winded. You can see the walkway in summer and spring HERE.

Watch Out For Turtles

This sign was found by the pond that I showed you a couple of weeks ago in the Wychwood Park neighbourhood where the baby goose door was. They take care of the wildlife there!

Rainbow Pole

This was a candidate for the rainbow theme post and is typical of the faded rainbows I found that were remaining from Pride week in the summer. It still brightens the neighbourhood though.There are a lot of faded flags around too!

I spotted this lovely little Bluebird along the same laneway as last week's Siberian Tiger mural. Even though we have already had some snow there are a few trees like the one in the pic which are still green. This one frames the bird so well! The artist for this one is Christina Mazzulla.

December Theme: Rainbow

The December theme for the City Daily Photo Blog community is Rainbow. We don't seem to get a lot of rainbows here and I did find a lot of faded pride flags but came up with nothing until walking along Harbord St and spotting the bicycle parking lot of a cafe. The rainbow coloured bikes along with the brick wall give almost the whole range of colours except for yellow.
