Readers will know that I love to go to this beautiful park in our neighbourhood, called Trinity Bellwoods. But of course, everyone loves pretty parks, so I won’t go on and on about my adoration of this beautiful green space, located amidst our urban landscape.
Here are some photos I have taken recently, a set before the snow ….
… and a second set taken a week later, after the first snow fall.
I encountered an amusing situation while I was in there after it had snowed. There is an excellent tobogganing hill in this park, so I encountered a boy of about fifteen with what must have been his younger sister, of about seven. They were fully snow-gear clad, and each pulling a sleigh. For some reason, the child was crying out loudly, and calling for her mother, father and grandmother. And with much gentleness and patience, the teenaged brother was trying to convince her to quiet down because the people she was calling couldn’t hear her. I thought maybe they had walked ahead and were somewhere out of hearing range in the park, but listening in a bit longer (I couldn’t help it), I realized the adults she wanted so badly were actually at home. It was funny how she thought that just calling them would magically transport them to her side.
If you care to see this setting in different seasons, here it is on a beautiful Sunday afternoon in the summertime, and here it is with the trees showing their glorious fall colours. There is also a set of shots of ‘Dogs and their People in the Park’, and a sighting of a very rare white squirrel who lives there.
