This weekend saw the temperatures rise high enough draw people outside.  A lot of the snow melted and there was hope in the air – hope that winter won’t last too much longer.  This being Canada, winter can last as long as it wants!…  And that’s often into April.  In the meantime, it was great to enjoy the weekend.

    I *thought* I recognized the location, before you identified it! (So this is a pointless, totally self-congratulatory comment… ah but, then again, the meaning of a post, like any work of art, lies in the viewer’s interaction with it… And sometimes that interaction is as trivial as all-get-out.)

      Nothing wrong with self-congratulatory….. I have been guilty of a few of those myself! Nor is there anything wrong with trivial interactions!

        Moe seriously, your blog keeps me updated on the places & things about Toronto that I always liked to notice for myself – so it’s always a great vicarious visit
