While exploring alleyways in the Jones Avenue area of Toronto I discovered many thriving weeds. A weed could be defined as a spontaneous urban plant which survives with no help from us.
I will identify it at the end of the post.
Now that it is legal, I see well-tended Marijuana plants more and more often in gardens.
It is a strong-smelling plant so large quantities of it can be upsetting to neighbours.
This crested brownish bird about the size of a House Sparrow with a yellow band at the tail tip is a Cedar Waxwing.
Cruising these residential Sunday
streets in dry August sunlight:
what offends us is
the houses in pedantic rows, the planted
sanitary trees, assert
levelness of surface like a rebuke
to the dent in our car door. – Margaret Atwood
