Walking through the old neighbourhood close to St. Joe’s Hospital I couldn’t help but notice how many of the old homes had new window put in as well as undergoing some major renovations. Some of the windows were clearly new but had kept the charm of the older house. Others were a complete departure from the older architecture.
….it may come as a surprise that there is any ice anywhere with these crazy mild weather we’ve been having
That said there are many areas where ponds are dangerously covered in thin layers of ice. There are signs all over Grenadier Pond that the ice is too thin to walk on but any fool should be able to see that from the open water near the middle of the pond. Every day the ice gets thinner and thinner but the weather is starting to change and it should freeze over again. Not sure how long it will take for it to be safe but I’m not going to test it out.
I always find it amazing that trees can survive the extreme temperatures, especially those that are already growing out of the water. Here are some shots of the ponds in High Park over the last five days.
These photos are not from my garden. Today I walked through the gardens in High Park. Normally there would be snow on the ground but this year we’ve had unusually mild temperatures and next to no snow in Toronto. Little pops of green are everywhere, as well as the browns of winter (which I also love).
