Last weekend I ventured out to Allan Gardens, one of the oldest parks in the city having been established in 1850. It is the site of wonderful greenhouses which I will show you later, but this pic is of one of two large fibreglass dog sculptures by artist Stephen Cruise found in the off-leash dog area. The blue dog is in the small dog part and a green, tougher-looking dog is in the big dog part. The park was still a treacherous place to walk after our recent ice storm so this woman was safely seated while her little dog wandered around. You can still see some of the broken branches behind her, a common sight everywhere in Toronto.
