Weather for the Dogs (and their owners)

…..spring like conditions continue in the Northern Hemisphere

The sun has come out and the temperatures have climbed well above freezing for more than a week now and it looks like will continue for another week or more. On Sunday my husband and I drove to High Park and took a nice long walk in the off leash area where dogs and their owners can walk, run and play. Earlier in the day I walked in the neighbourhood, where I also came across some dogs and lots of swans.

In High Park there were a lot more people and dogs and the walk was quite challenging due to the steep hill at the end of the walk. When you start downhill you know that at some point you have to go up again.


Is Spring Just Around the Corner?

…..don’t get your hopes up

This past weekend we’ve seen warmer temperatures, thawing snow, rain and grey skies. Certainly signs that spring can’t be too far off but I’m sure winter is not finished with us just yet. Here are a few photos that might give you hope that spring is just around the corner.

It’s a snowy day in Toronto and there are two more days of it to come on Saturday and Sunday. In many places you can’t tell where the path begins or ends.

It’s Groundhog Day. Which way did Wiarton Willie from Ontario go? Back in his hole. Six more weeks of Winter for us. Ugh!!!!!!!!


Not surprising. It’s freezing outside and the forecast calls for more snow this weekend.



A Square Evening in December – Our First Snow

December 11, 2017

Walking tonight to get in my remaining steps I stepped into a winter wonderland.  That may be a bit of an exaggeration seeing that it was really just a dusting of snow that was clinging to the ground but the evening was so serene that I didn’t want to stop walking. I took my camera with me and managed to capture some of the falling snow.
