A visit today to the Royal Botanical Gardens.. My favourite was the lily pond with it’s reflections. Are those lotus flowers? If yes, why not call it a lotus pond?
The fist pointing to the lovely flower, I learned today, is the way you point to a flower. Never point a finger when indicating a flower. Who knew!
The cute vegetable creations were part of a competition at the gardens for children. We got to see the creations just about to be judged. I’d say they are all winners! The Green Thumb Club at the Royal Botanical Garden is meant to get children involved in gardening. They certainly had some amazing veggies to show for their interest and effort!
Loved this sign..
And then there were these beauties…..
But these are my favourites of the day! The sculpture is called Rejoicing Family by Taurai Mutigwa (Zimbabwe) and is part of The International Sculpture Collection currently on at the RBG. The other two I rejoice are family!
En route home from Ontario Place to the streetcar stop we passed the BMO field. There was a football match (also known as soccer) going on. If only I could replay the roar of the crowds when they were cheering.. Oh my! Such a primal and moving sound! Phew. Here are a couple of shots of the crowds in the nose bleed sections. Man, they are really high up in the stadium.
Love the streetcar decked out with the neat dragon of the beer commercial.
Recently I went to the DeSerres art store with ma petite sœur looking to buy some art supplies or even one of the adult colouring books that are so popular these days but found this!! A jigsaw puzzle with a shot of Positano, Italy. I gave a squeal of joy on recognizing this beautiful place. The 500 pieces are big, so it was easy to finish till I hit the buildings in the picture. 😦 It was going to be a long process. Luckily the petite sœur who is great with buildings came over for a visit, and soon she & I were looking for pieces based on the way the buildings line up or look in elevation. There might have been some perspective in there as well! 🙂 We had the pieces in place in no time. I am glad I didn’t finish the puzzle on my own. This way it was way more fun!! Grazie, petite sœur!
I love jigsaw puzzles but it has been a while since I worked on one. So March Break this year was the time to get into one again! A 1000 pieces of fun! The MOST frustrating part? The white pieces of the sky. Grrr.. Took me 4 days to finish with interruptions like laundry, food, grocery shopping… 🙂 The next one is getting opened..mwhahaha….
