How Sweet It Is

Here’s a post after a long hiatus. I went to the Brickworks on this sunny day in Toronto. There, the light on the snow, the dried grasses, the trees were a boost to my spirit.

Fowl and Fido

I went to the Brickworks last Sunday. The air was awash with the calls of red-wing blackbirds and soaring and diving swallows.  I came upon mallards and cormorants in the ponds, plus a mournful and patient dog awaiting the return of his human companions.

Woof. When are they coming back to me?!


Rabbit or Hare?

Last June, as I was walking through the wild flowers beside the railroad tracks to go to the Brickworks in Toronto, I came upon this rabbit or hare late in the afternoon.  If anyone can identify this animal, I’d be happy to know which creature it is.
