On my way to the bakery this afternoon, I saw a lot of pigeons perked on the power line wires. I had never seen pigeons closely perched side by side before and I wondered what was going on.
I should have taken a quick shot… but I thought I should go quickly to the bakery and come back. Bad move. When I came back, most of the pigeons perched on the power line wires were gone. Only a few left.
What da heck happened? Where did they go?
I found out that the pigeons were waiting for dinner. A guy comes everyday at around 5 o’clock in the afternoon and feeds the birds. He said at first there were only four pigeons. But they must have told a friend and the friend told its family and friends and now there are so many of them.
April is Daffodil Month, which is the Canadian Cancer Society ‘s national fundraising campaign for the fight against cancer.
The daffodil is a symbol of strength and courage in the fight against cancer.
In my Toronto neighbourhood, there is a patch of daffodils in our local park to remember those who passed because of cancer, to celebrate cancer survivors, and to give courage to those who are fighting cancer at present.
Looking out the window
and what do I see?
A beautiful snowy winter day
But isn’t it supposed to be spring?
When flowers bloom
and robins sing?
When we put on rubber boots
and play in the pouring rain?
Mother Nature, what’s happening?
Don’t wanna be disrespecful
’cause ’tis a beautiful day after all
But calendar shows it is April
It is supposed to be spring.
Well, isn’t it?
It never really left. It was just hiding around the corner and, as soon as we put away our winter clothes, it came back with an evil grin. Toronto had ice pellets that turned into freezing rain overnight and everything was covered with ice today. It was really pretty to look at. Definitely not for walking or driving though. But hey, this is Canada. We live in igloos.
Here are some pictures I took today on my way to the bakery:
This is Colin. Colin is a spray paint artist, who has been working to eradicate graffiti in my neighborhood here in Toronto. Colin was creating this mural on a detached double car garage last summer. … that’s why he was shirtless, it was summer. Just so you know.
