Lovebot and Grominator seem to have developed a friendship.
They have begun appearing in public together.

Street art and murals

Some of the paint is starting to peel but otherwise it is in good shape.

Also, there is a woman on a bike with a Toronto scene behind her including the CN Tower and a TTC subway car below her.   There are lots of flowers including red roses and white lilies in the picture. The mural is signed by Robert  (Reber?) Rian Cruz.
