The November warm and sunny days are not associated with inclement late fall. Rare windy and rainy days with the flying fallen leaves only emphasize the beauty of this November and fall in general in the city of Toronto. Sunrises and sunsets are extremely beautiful. The afternoon sun still warms and caresses numerous stroll lovers, which are enjoying the last days of the outgoing autumn.
The next Friday in Toronto and nearby cities the Christmas trees will be lit, and we mentally say goodbye to the autumn. This is the beginning of preparations for the meeting of winter and expectations of all seasonal holidays.
The Cherry blossom is very short but spectacular event. High Park in Toronto last evening was full of people who came to admire that beauty. The evening sun created an awesome mixture of light, shadows and colour. It is time when almost everyone makes pictures to memories the event till the next year.
Last Saturday we had warm and sunny day. It seemed Spring came to our place forever. People after a long cold winter poured into the streets. Walking area along the lake was filled with pedestrians, runners, cyclists, roller-skaters. Playground filled with fun children’s laughter. Lovers occupied benches and secluded places on the beach. Rare daredevils sunbathed in the spring sunshine. There were the yachts and rowers on the lake.
Then the week of cold wind, the night temperature below zero and even light snow came again. Hopefully coming weekend is going to be nice and sunny again.
Swansea is a neighbourhood in the City of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, bounded on the west by the Humber River, on the north by Bloor Street, on the east by High Park where Grenadier Pond is located and on the south by Lake Ontario. Surrounded by the river, ponds and lakes it attracts a lot of waterfowl. Swans give a special beauty and appeal of this place and attract many visitors to admire them.
Spring is interesting time to observe courtship and the appearance of offspring. Swans do it nicely. They carefully treat their companions, protect them from encroachment of uninvited guests and take care of their offspring.
Swans is one of Swansea hallmarks.
