We are big on the after dinner stroll here at Casa Fishbowl. You never know who you’re going to meet, or what neat little things you’re going encounter. It’s an adventure EVERY TIME.
The other night we found ourselves walking down to towards Westboro Village. Destination: the Secret Garden a.k.a Maplelawn, a walled-in public garden next to Keg Manor on Richmond Road. Have you ever been?
Some of us like to walk on the wall that runs next to the sidewalk:
We paused to admire a nest along the way:
… and wondered aloud if its location was planned or accidental:
“FOR SALE: Comfortable nest, overlooking scenic historic garden. No cats. Close to water and food source in trendy neighborhood of Westboro.”
There are a lot of these growing in the garden right now:
And lots of other green bits poking out here and there, but it’s still rather sleepy-looking (although I’m sure it’s VERY BUSY underneath the surface of the soil):
It doesn’t sound sleepy. Not like it does during the winter. It’s a pretty raucous place at the moment. It’s full of folks who feel like they constantly have something to say:
Whereas others might find it a tad boring:
I don’t think it’s boring at all. On the contrary, it’s a pretty place for a wander, no matter what time of year it is.
