New steps down to Humber River trail

These gentlemen from the King parks department are seen putting the finishing touches on the new access stairway to the walking trail along the East Humber River, behind St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church, on Keele Street North.   It took quite a while for the restoration, but many thanks, guys.

The essence of orange


The tiny bird that hums ~ with its wings

...that Coppa's opened in King City?
Well, the pleasant young lady pictured above was cooking up burgers and hotdogs for customers and passersby last Saturday, in front of the store, to mark the occasion.  Time flies by doesn't it?

Keele Street ~ Kettleby

A Kettleby barn ... re-invented
This attractive building has replaced an old barn on its Keele Street property and while it is certainly oozes a barn image, I suspect it to be something more pretentious than a working barn.   It is just one of many new impressive buildings being erected on this very large private property, which seems destined to be a King Township landmark in the not too distant future.

Daylilies delight us...

Photo by Barry Wallace
I'm not sure that I have ever picked daylilies and put them in a vase before.   Why bother I suppose, when they wither away at the end of the day, and are replaced with new blooms in the flower bed the next morning.   I just wanted to see how they would look grouped together with their array of many colours.   Pretty, yes?
