Weird

I saw this sign and at first thought it was an ad for an art show but it seems to be for some sort of selfie photo contest. Strange looking image don't you think?

Out Of The City

I haven't been past the city limits for a long time but a couple of weeks ago went to visit a friend just north of the city's border. You can still find a few scattered farms around that haven't been bought up and turned into subdivisions but this barn looks like it has seen better days which makes you wonder how long until houses appear on this plot! And there was still a bit of snow around.

Tropical Garage

This mural on a garage door was just completed a couple of weeks ago when we were still in the dull monochrome days of winter so it was so nice to see such bright colours appearing in a laneway. It is signed Rio so I'm not sure if that is the artist's name or it is referring to the subject which is obviously Rio. I really like this one! The 888 is the address of the house in front of this garage.

Finally Spring Flowers

The Daffodils have finally started to bloom here especially in south facing spots. It is always so nice to see colour after a monochromatic winter!

American Lady Butterfly

I saw my first butterfly of the spring this week and she was a beauty. I googled and identified her as an American Lady. They don't winter over up here so she had just arrived from down south and was enjoying the Scilla flowers.

Stormy Skies

I was out walking in the sunshine when all of a sudden dark grey clouds rolled down from the north and I was preparing to get soaked but luckily they passed by and the rain came down farther east. The clouds certainly gave a dramatic background to Casa Loma though.

Up & Down

This is a drive-by shot taken from the highway just north of the city showing one of the roller coasters at Canada's Wonderland, a huge amusement park. The park doesn't open until April 30 but it looks like this ride is ready to go. It is called the Behemoth and looks pretty scary to me - the first drop is 230 feet!
