I keep telling people I live right next door to a forest. No one believes me, given that I also live in an apartment building five minutes’ walking distance from a subway station in Toronto.
Well, here’s the proof: the view out the front entrance to my building:
I decided to venture out this evening and take some photos of the ravine. No small feat, given that I’m afraid of heights and depths.
But it was quite lovely, really:
Hard to believe there’s a major thoroughfare 50 metres away, isn’t it?
But then I spied some evidence of civilisation:
Hmm – maybe that’s why those bloody kids were whingeing outside my balcony on Saturday?!
But everything else appeared to be untouched by humans…
…until I spotted this.
Now – who would pitch a bike down a ravine, I ask you?!?
A-ha! Millionaires’ Row. Must be them. But then again, the world is their trashcan, no?
I keep having to remind myself that The Rich Ones don’t control everything. After all, check out this UFO!
(And no, this isn’t one of those ones I keep flinging off the balcony in a fit of pique. It’s the real thing. Honestly. Big lights started flashing off it but just as I raised my camera to take a photo, it vaporised.
Sigh. Now no-one will ever believe me!!)
And, just as I was about to come in, I spotted this.
The Easter Bunny, come early?! (Orthodox Easter being this Sunday)
But apparently not. No chocolates in sight. Just a rabbit, pigging out on grass.
Too blissed out by all that green, apparently, to notice the carrot right next to it!
