Reflection


 It is always fun to check out the reflections in the triangular windows of the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) when walking along Bloor St. This addition to the museum was designed by Daniel Libeskind and is due to have a few changes made to parts of it but I hope the windows remain intact.

Time For A Nap

 

There was not a lot of action at the pond in James Gardens during a recent visit. These ducks were so sound asleep that none of them moved at all as I approached them. I didn't disturb them.

Orange Door


 Not all of the houses in the Annex neighbourhood are large although most of them are. I like the look of this small one which was probably some kind of infill years ago. And they have a nice orange door.

Irises


 There are Iris blooms out all over the city and there are so many different colour combinations. These deep purple ones flower on a shorter stem than most so are very stable in windy conditions. I love to see them all.

Espresso Anyone?

 

This unusual building on Davenport Rd houses a company that imports and services high-end espresso machines. The building looks to me like the type that would have been a gas station when it first opened.  It could use a bit of work.

Lovely Garden


 I tend to show a lot of large homes in the older parts of the city but as you move out a bit from the older parts you find many houses similar to this one which were built after WWll. There are many little enclaves of these homes with 2 bedrooms, kitchen, living room, and a bathroom and they were affordable. It feels like we should be looking at building small homes again to deal with the housing shortages everywhere.

Canada Geese


 I'll have to go by this restaurant in the Yorkville neighbourhood in winter when there are no umbrellas up so that we could get a good look at this mural of Canada Geese. The parts that we can see are wonderfully done. I have no idea who the artist is for this one as the signature is probably hidden by some diners.
