Today I have some odds and ends shots. I start with this large bush not far from home, taken in May, in full blossom.
One morning I caught this moody sky at Lansdowne Park, with the Aberdeen Pavilion in the background.
A warm summer day and walking along the Mackenzie King Bridge, I noticed these two having a meal along the grasses that are here. Wascally wabbits!
Another day downtown, I happened to notice this rather garish car.
We've just gotten through the Tulip Festival, but I'm taking you to one of the prime locations to show you what beds look like for the rest of the growing season. Bulbs are removed and replaced with those that grow into October when the bulbs are replanted. These are in Major's Hill Park. I took these in mid-June.
This is not far from home for me. Long after the trunk is gone, the roots still endure, embedded right into the rock wall where it grew out of. The rock wall is part of the greater ridge that Parliament Hill is part of.
An early July day brought me through the Glebe. This sign was outside a prescription eyeglass store.
This has all the hallmarks of a local artist, Christopher Griffin, who tends to work in concrete sculptures. Raccoons in a big scale are found outside the Glebe Community Centre.
This is the community centre itself, housed in a former church.
A short walk away is Glebe-St. James United Church.
Continuing on with my walk that day I passed into Little Italy. There is a government complex here that houses among other things the Canadian Geological Survey. Outside are these rocks, with wildflowers behind them. The sign in the background states that they are sedimentary rocks, dating back 440 million years. This would also have to be part of the greater ridgeline that Parliament Hill is part of, as the ridge curves this way from the north and disappears into the earth south of this spot.
