Just For Fun

We often don't have green plants still thriving at this time of year but this has been an exceptionally warm start to autumn here.  This strange bird was spotted hiding out on the deck!

This very cooperative grasshopper waited patiently while I ran inside to get my camera. Maybe it wanted a portrait done. They are intriguing creatures with such intricate markings.

I love the textured bark on this tree. I have no idea what kind of tree it is though. Maybe someone out there does?

A Lovely Fall Day

We have had some lovely warm fall days which are perfect for a nice long walk. I spotted this nice view along the driveway of one of the heritage homes in the Yorkville neighbourhood while doing just that.

A Twist On Empanadas

The Gaucho Pie Company is a family run bakery serving Argentinian empanadas  with a Toronto twist of flavours. They feature 20 different flavours which reference some of the diverse cultures found in the city. So you can try things like spicy pork with kimchi as a tribute to Koreatown and lots of others. Right now they are just doing wholesale as they renovate their retail operation.

Balls Of Steel

These large Corten steel balls were spotted in a large planter in front of an apartment building in the Annex  neighbourhood. The photo was taken facing the park across the road for a nicer background. There was no artist info which was unfortunate as I really liked the pieces.

This is one of the most beautiful murals I have ever seen. Painted on 2 utility boxes, the artist for this one is Jarus. It is a lovely image of a Baltimore Oriole.
