It’s spring!

It seems to have taken forever and we’ve kept our heavy coats close to hand but spring has arrived after what seemed like the longest winter ever known. This past winter was a travel agent’s dream but now, parks are bursting with people and nature is putting on a show. Here are some photos taken in Lions Park this week.

Lastly, while it’s nice to see nature thriving, some well meaning (but ill-informed) resident has scattered potato chips by the Humber presumably to feed the ducks and other birds that hang out there. Luckily there seemed to be no takers for this junk food. Feeding animals in parks is ill-advised. The City of Toronto asks residents not to feed birds in the parks system.
