Allan Gardens

The Allan Gardens conservatory is one of toronto's best kept secrets. I love walking around the greenhouse whenever I'm in the area. This time, the gardeners were just starting to plant for the season, so there weren't a lot of colourful flowers to take shots of. I decided to give myself an assignment - focus on line and form. These are some of the resulting pics.

Ori in Jail

A few weeks ago we decided it's time to move Ori to sleep in a crib in his own room. It took him a few days to get used to his new surroundings, but all in all, the parties involved have been sleeping longer and better since. Well, maybe with the exception of his mother, who misses him dearly. We were lucky to get a used crib from my parents' friends, and Ori doesn't seem to mind that the colour of the crib is almost camouflaged by the the wall. For a baby that doesn't like being contained he has, so far, been a very good inmate.

My neighbour's Tree

We have an elderly Italian neighbour who spends most of her days tending to the vegetable garden in her back yard and mopping and watering her front lawn. Her property is immaculately clean and she takes great pride in it. She gets very excited every time we take Ori out, and screams (she is very hard of hearing) at him in Iatalian, trying to make him laugh. There is a tree in front of her house which may or may not be a cherry tree. Its flowers blossomed for a few days last week, and so I took the opportunity to take a few shots. Enjoy.
