…..enjoying a warm and sunny day at Marie Curtis Park
Today we experienced a nice warm summer day; the last one of the season. Normally this time of year the average temperature is about 20 degrees celsius but we hit 23 and people definitely took advantage of it.
When I arrived at the park school had just dismissed its students and I noticed several children were in the playground and splash pad. Cyclists, senior citizens and dog walkers were also enjoying this great weather.

….on this day, August 26, International Dog Day I am dedicating this page to Frances
Frances came into our lives over 14 years ago when she was only two months old. My husband has always said the she is the best dog he’s ever owned. I say he because Frances is truly my husband’s dog but in the last few years when her energy levels dropped and she was only interested in short walks I’ve become the dog walker in the family.
….Toronto has many naturalized parks where nature is encouraged and wildflowers flourish
On my many walks I love photographing flowers, cultivated and wild. The following are just some of the beautiful wildflowers that grow along the lake in my neighbourhood.
….everything is a day or two behind this week
….behind city hall, a most unusual spot for such a dignified politician
Finding places to sit down when you’re in downtown Toronto can still be a little difficult even after things have opened up a bit more. There’s also a ton of construction going on and lots of areas are fenced off. Yesterday, my daughter and I found ourselves smack in the middle of town and we were looking for a place to drink our coffee while we waited for a take-out meal to be prepared.
Andrea knew that behind city hall there were some benches where we could sit for twenty minutes while we waited for our lunch. To my surprise we came across a huge statue of Winston Churchill.
As you can see, there is a lot of construction going on in the street next to the statue.
