A Surprising Couple.

I first spotted the wonderful butterfly on this garage door and then the wonderful Snowy, the Wire-haired Fox Terrier from the Tintin comic books. They make for a cheerful welcome home for someone. This was painted by Nick Sweetman.

Tall Ones

A while ago I showed you the small building whose owner did not sell to the developer doing the former Honest Ed's site. This is the view fro around the corner on Bloor St of a few of the tall towers under construction. There are more of them to come on the property and they certainly loom over the rest of the streetscape.

A Tough Butterfly

We don't see many butterflies in November but a couple of weeks ago on a sunny day this beauty spent the afternoon fluttering around on the Marigolds on my south facing deck. I was out there too enjoying the unusual late autumn warmth along with tens of bees who were buzzing around my large Chrysanthemum. I am pretty sure this was a Painted Lady butterfly.

Cool Car

I spotted this gorgeous Austin-Healey 3000 parked on a local street while I was out for a walk. They were made from 1959 to 1967 and with a 3 litre engine are fast. This one was in perfect condition.

A Place To Rest

I spotted this gentleman having a nice rest in the autumn sun at James Gardens. He is on a bench that my mother liked to sit on as it gives you a good view of the duck pond and the gardens.

I spotted this rather unusual sign on a factory building in the Liberty Village neighbourhood. It turns out that the company sells skin care and make-up products of a variety of different brands. Not sure why it is abnormal.

Heading West

 These are the tracks behind the building where yesterday's mural was found. It is hard to believe that this is in the middle of the city and that it is a very busy line.  Some of the trains that pass here take a good 5 minutes to go through carrying all kinds of goods.
