A newly revitalized Ontario Place is back. A work in progress but great space to have back again. This new version is a green, gentle and peaceful space. Free to all to walk through and enjoy. And we did. Got to see many different views of the city that we hadn’t ever seen before. Definitely plan to go back. Hear that the Cinesphere is going to reopen as well! I saw my first ever IMAX movie there and loved every minute of it. Looking forward that reopening as well.
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!
It’s that time of the year when High Park is blessed with the lovely Cherry Blossom blooms. It is a busy time for this relatively peaceful hood for a weekend or a day depending on Mother Nature’s mood. This time it looks like a weekend and a couple of days next week. I try and go to High Park as part of this annual visit but it’s getting noticeably more and more crowded every year. Phew! The crowds really got my attention this year, and of course so did the lovely blooms!
It is heartwarming to see that something so ethereal, simple and beautiful can still catch our attention, even if for a short while.
