Popular cafe is expanding in King City


 A new and greatly expanded rear deck is being added to the Roost Cafe, opposite the Anglican Church, on Keele Street, south of the King Road in King City.   The cafe is now just over a year old and appears to be thriving.   Allison Mumford, operator of The Roost has many more changes and expanded services in mind for this year and next.

2017 Schomberg Street Gallery show and sale

I can't seem to attend the Schomberg Street Gallery each year without getting a photo of one of the numerous, art-loving pooches around and about.   The one above belonged to one of the artists and just two weeks ago it was a saved rescue dog.   Its new owners welcomed it into their home just the day before the Street Gallery.   It was a charmer.


This Main Street Schomberg home got as much attention as the Schomberg Street Gallery art show.   It is for sale and someone made a wise decision to hold an open house on the same day as the art show and sale.   It drew an endless stream of curious visitors.

This year's Street Gallery featured more artists than ever and the overall quality of the many art forms was the best ever.

Weston Road ~ in the hamlet of Strange

Photo by Barry Wallace
King Township has a well-earned reputation of being known as one of Canada's top hot-spots for horses, but this symbol of the wild west, in the hamlet of Strange, just north of the King Road, would suggest that King is long-horn cattle country also.

Backyard bunnies...

Photo by Barry Wallace
This young bunny is one of two (plus their mother) that have joined our backyard menagerie this summer.   The two youngsters are about half grown and seem to be thriving.   The one pictured above took a break from eating as much of the back lawn as possible, before stretching out in the sun, on a patio stone.   Linda thinks the rabbits are sharing a den under the garden shed, with the groundhog.
