Stumping Toronto

It always sad to see older trees come down in my neighbourhood – some of these taken down by aging, some by disease – Toronto did start to replace these, for free, over a couple of summers but those new trees will take years to fill the empty spaces

rotten to the core
how old was I went I died?
sliced
deserted termite city
split personality
dark hearted
pink maple?
not tickled to be pink

Williamson Ravine Dec 21 2020

Winter Solstice was a perfect day for a visit to the Williamson Ravine, while we still have access to it & while it remain intact. It will soon become a major construction zone & probably be closed for any public use until that construction is over. No, they aren’t putting in condos but Metrolinx is adding another line to the tracks than run though the north end of the Ravine. For more info:

trees marked for execution
