Park benches are mostly empty these days but in the last week the weather has warmed up considerably so slowly people are starting to use the benches again.

Pull Up a Seat Challenge – Week 4

The temperatures are finally beginning to fall and with that comes abandoned outdoor seating. Over in London, where my family has to work from home, even a spot at the end of the bed becomes a seat to work from and in the case of our granddaughter the floor under a desk is good spot to sit so that she can be close to her Papa.

I rarely combine two challenges into one but this shot in High Park today worked for Pull Up a Seat and January Squares. Day 15.

I’m a little behind so I’m catching up with three squares today. The next two are for days 13 and 14. The first one is Looking Up the Path. The path is almost completely hidden because of the leaves but there is a path there and the following photo is Uprooted. In the naturalized area of High Park the trees fall naturally when they die unless they are a hazard to the walkers and then they are cut down to avoid any accidents.

Pull Up a Seat Photo Challenge – Week 43

COVID numbers in Toronto and a few other urban areas in Ontario are on the rise so the government has closed bars, restaurants and gyms again in those cities most affected. We went for a walk through High Park this week looking for places to have a picnic later in the week. We were hoping to find washroom facilities and a place to purchase a coffee. We struck out in both areas. So sad to see these abandoned chairs at the Park’s only restaurant. The good news is that there are covered areas where we can sit and have a snack brought from home.

Pull Up a Seat Photo Challenge – Sept. 18, 2020

….thanks to Xingfu Mama for hosting the https://xingfumama.blog/2020/09/18/pull-up-a-seat-photo-challenge-2020-week-38/

Earlier this week I drove to the Women’s Art Association of Canada or WAAC building downtown to help clean up the garden in the back. They are suppose to be hosting a wedding this Saturday. Our COVID numbers were coming down in Ontario but recently they have started to spike again. There is talk of lowering the number of people allowed to gather in outdoor spaces again but the organizers don’t think that this will affect the wedding this weekend where about 30 people are expected to attend.

Hopefully these chairs will be in use on Saturday. If not it’s for a good reason.

Last weekend my husband and I and some family and friends took a day trip to the Aberfoyle Antique Market. There were lots of amazing old chairs.

Pull Up a Seat…but keep your distance – Week 12

…. outdoor seating is well underused

In this day and age of social distancing sitting down in public places is getting almost taboo. On my walk yesterday I did come across some unused garden furniture (still too cold to enjoy) and park benches.

The first three shots were taken a few weeks ago before people were asked to social distance themselves.12-DFC323-FF93-4-E86-BA85-CFBDE7-FBF180-1-201-a

No takers when the temperatures are below freezing, especially when the seat is made of metal.
