Last week… a long transit trip to the Centennial Conservatory in Etobicoke. Then a wander through the terrific greenhouses there, full of spring blooms, greenery, Easter flowers and a few finned and feathered friends, too. A really interesting place. We took a winding 6.5k walk back through a small park system and eventually made it to Kipling station. What an amazing morning! Trees, dogs, a tiny river, even an icy underpass challenge. Sure, it was an obstacle course, of sorts! Thank you all for maintaining your senses of humour, when I kept saying… “Really, just three more blocks!” Ha ha! It worked, didn’t it? 🙂
And this week’s plan…
Sunday, April 05, 2015:
Happy Easter. Happy Passover. Spring has really arrived. Let’s take a short neighbourhood walk to see which lawns have the earliest crocuses… and see whether anyone has any snowdrops left! Nothing formal or fancy – just up and down our streets. The plan is 90 minutes. For all our talk of spring, there may be a little bit of snow. So wear layers. A fresh air walking start to our Sunday. And then we can all set out to celebrate the rest of the day!
Coming up soon: back to Wychwood, east Beaches ravines, a Little India walk (and vegetarian brunch), an amazing all-day picnic-hike to the Leslie Spit (I know, I know: “Tommy Thompson Park”!), a special visit to the High Park zoo (with our lovely friend and guide, Marilyn!), a tour of the Queen’s Park legislature building, a Jane’s walk or two (we’ll discuss this, to plan), a couple of Doors Open Toronto weekend adventures, a return to a certain Island Tea Party we loved last year… and twenty other spring, summer and fall things. Join us!
See you soon!
