Leslie Spit's Mothers Day

The sunny weather brought many out.

Mothers Day gifts on the Spit.

It's a gift to ride through a city landscape to Nature's pure essence.

The Apple trees were bursting in pink . . .

their awakening floral beauty for new life to prosper.

What began in the late 1950s due to Toronto's downtown growth Leslie's Spit
 is an oasis for many. It is now called Tommy Thomspon Park.

Where you spirits lift easy.

Where you can find a spot to rest and watch life go by . . .

Or get close and see swan come up to visit. 

Several Orioles flew down in front of us. Camouflaged by the shrubbery,
only this photo captured his presence.

Every 5 minutes another visitor would go by.

The day was a buzz with activity, some worked on their homes. 

Looking out the Cormorant community curtained our view of the CN tower.

Moving slowly along last years stems . . .

while others tasting objects tossed back from the waters.

Basking in the sun's warmth on the peninsula's south side.

A day to cherish and share. Gifts in every direction.

Cherry Blossoms awaken New beginnings

Easter weekend blossoms the life of the Cherry trees.
Here's Sunday's photo on a cloudy day.

Here is my Monday photo on a sunny day somewhere else.
This time in a park and not a lane way.
