It was a cold day when I was at the Distillery District. I found the place very interesting but busy. I kept darting into the buildings to get warm and because they are buildings that have an old world charm. As the name implies these buildings housed beer and liquor making enterprises. They have since gone out of business or were bought out. I may go back at some point when it is not cold or crowded.
I captured this at the Distillery District in Downtown Toronto. I saw this hanging hand blown glass lamp and thought it was interesting but when I looked closer I found that looking lengthwise down the line I got the distorted reflections of the other lamps as well as the windows of the building I was in.
This waterfall is in High Park. A large park with a zoo, restaurant, a train to take you around the park, and many other amenities. This is a manmade waterfall fed by rain and an underground spring. It is one of several small waterfalls feeding each other from the spring or the pooling pond.
This is Toronto’s CN Tower, a tourist attraction, on a hazy afternoon. I was at Tommy Thompson Park looking for a different perspective to capturing the tower’s image that most people would not take the time to do since it was a 1 1/2 hour walk to get to this spot.
Crown Imperial is an impressive, spring flowering bulb that has been cultivated since the 16th century. It grows very quickly to a height of 3-4 feet and adorns itself with a crown of nodding, bell shaped flowers topped with a pineapple-like tuft of bright, glossy green leaves. The flower clusters last about 2-3 weeks. One downside to these exotic looking plants is that the bulbs have the fragrance of Eau D’pew. The upside is that the skunky aroma tends to repel moles and other rodents away from your bulb garden. This information is from, http://www.thegardenhelper.com I captured this flower in the Perennial Border at the Toronto Botanical Gardens on Mother’s Day! The flowers do not have a scent.
