This sweet dog named Willow was recently adopted by my neighbours. She was a rescue dog from the Caribbean island of St Lucia and has taken to her new home perfectly. She is a real sweetheart and loves everyone she meets.

Purple Iris

These deep purple Irises are always the first that I see blooming in the spring. They are so deeply coloured and have a wonderful iridescence about them!

Toronto French School

This is the main building belonging to the Toronto French School which is a private, co-ed, bilingual school located on Lawrence Ave E. This building was constructed as a residence in 1922 by the Sifton family and was known as Sifton Manor. It was purchased by the school in 1962 and is one of several buildings on the large property. It is unusual to see it without a lot of people milling about.

Reflect, Act

I spotted this sign on the wall of one of the buildings of the Toronto French School as I wandered about the empty grounds of the school. All of our schools are closed. The words seem timely! I'll show you one of the school buildings tomorrow.

Along The Laneway

These are the trees that were partly shading the laneway in yesterday's pic. The balconies belong to a very old 4 story apartment building, the kind of building that people move into and stay for years and years. It looks like the wood railings could use a coat of paint and then it would all look wonderful again. Someone has a green thumb in there!

This is a pic from my archives which I shot last summer and am not sure why I didn't post it before. I was wandering along a laneway and spotted this lovely face looking out through the shade of the lane. I'm not sure who the artist is.

A Late Bloomer

It has been a cool spring and so our flowering season is a bit later than normal. This small Magnolia tree is always a late bloomer but this year it is really late! It is nice to see the Tulips and Daffodils lasting longer than is usual.
