Yesterday I took the 505—Dundas—streetcar into Toronto’s downtown. It had snowed and rained all day on the 27th, leaving some wet snow on the residential streets. However, downtown it was hard to tell there had been any snow the day before.
Here’s some of the photos I took showing the grey day, sometimes through grey areas of the city, winding up near the Art Gallery of Ontario. Downtown, the occasional tree softened the gritty scene.
November’s Trees in TorontoPosted: November 10, 2012 Filed under: Plant Life, Toronto | Tags: autumn, beauty, branches, Canada, downtown Toronto, nature, November, streetcar, Toronto, trees Leave a comment
Recently, the days have been mostly grey in Toronto, with an unusual sunny day this past Thursday. It’s the dark time of the year, mid autumn, with the end of daylight savings time. Most of the leaves have fallen off the trees. As in every year, I turn to their branches as a source of beauty and connection to nature which I need in order to feel well.
In the neighbourhood are many trees and gardens that I walk among. But I’m always of the lookout, even downtown, for trees that soften the sometimes stark buildings. Here’s some photos from recent rambles.
