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.

Tulips

 

The interior of these red tulips reminded me of a kaleidoscope and I loved the vibrant red.

Blackbird Sitting In A Tree

 

This handsome fellow was sitting high in a tree in James Gardens singing away. Another Blackbird further away was answering back so there was quite a choir. Red-wing Blackbirds are always a sign to me that spring is really here.
