After doing a bit of shopping the other day I decided to drive down into Col. Sam Smith Park and go for a short of a walk. On my way back to the car I passed the outdoor skating rink. Even though we’ve experienced some pretty mild temperatures the rink was still operational because of the pipes under the ice.
In Toronto if you want to skate in one of the city ice rinks you have to book a time so that the area doesn’t become overwhelmed with too many people. A booth is set up outside the old Power Plant where you can sign in. The building itself is closed now during COVID but is used as a community centre.
I love textures and the closer you get to plant material you can find some very interesting textures from fluffy to spiky. Todays photos feature a spiky seed pod and a Queen Anne’s Lace flower in its final stage. The flower gets stranger looking as it goes through its metamorphosis. My husband thought it actually looked creepy. I guess if you don’t know what it is, it does look like something is crawling out of it.
