A Walk Through the Conservatory

…thanks to Becky B for hosting Walking Squareshttps://beckybofwinchester.com/2022/11/30/walking-squares-30/

This is the last day for the Walking Squares Challenge. I needed a pick me up because it was lashing down rain for a good part of the day. I took a quick trip over to the Centennial Park Conservatory hoping to see the Christmas displays. Unfortunately they won’t be ready till December 9th. I did, however, enjoy a stroll through the main greenhouses.

Tuesday Textures – November 29, 2022

who still wears fur coats and have you ever seen a fruit like the one below?

I’m including these two photos because of the textures in them. The fur coats were on display at an antique market that I went to on Saturday and the fruit was in the green grocer in Bloor West Village on the day I was walking in the rain.

Has anyone ever tried this fruit? I’m very curious about the taste and texture inside.

Walking at Night – November 29, 2022

….darkness comes upon us as early as 5:00 and the days continue to get shorter every day

When I talk about walking at night, it’s more like late afternoon but it’s dark enough for the Christmas lights to come on. Today I received my new iPhone and I wanted to test out the camera. It has a few more features than my last phone but it will probably take me awhile to figure them out.

Thanks to Becky B for hosting walking squares. Hard to believe that there is only one more day left in this challenge. https://beckybofwinchester.com/2022/11/29/walking-squares-29/

Walking Squares. – Inflatables – Yes or NO

thanks to Becky B for hosting Walking Squares https://beckybofwinchester.com/2022/11/28/walking-squares-28/

As I walk through the neighbourhood I see more and more inflatable Christmas characters popping up on lawns. I can see how children might like them. They are rather whimsical and fun to look at but…..

…this is how it looks when they’re deflated

….many people don’t keep them inflated all the time. I’m not sure if it’s too costly to keep them inflated all day long but when they’re not inflated it looks like someone’s laundry has been strewn all over the front yard.
