Out for a walk on King St., between Niagara and Bathurst. Saw this extension cord running between two commercial buildings.

A father and son (no, not me yet!) stroll past the new mural that's going up on the south side of Bloor St., between Perth Ave. and Dundas St. West. This new tree mural certainly helps brighten up this railway underpass, and is a nice complement to the Railpath up above.

Who wants a margarita?! If you bring the tequila, I've got the lemon juice and PCBs!
Photo taken on July 17 2010, at the Toronto Hydro property on Sterling Rd. where they just demolished a nice old building. Needless to say, there's a wee bit of PCB contamination there...
Similar to yesterday's photo, some wildflowers and graffiti on the Railpath. Taken on 2010-06-06.
A yellow flower on the West Toronto Railpath, somewhere between Ruskin Ave. and Dupont St., 2010-06-06.
Went for a walk along the West Toronto Railpath and around the 'hood one evening a few weeks ago. The Crossways apartment complex at Dundas and Bloor was lit up nicely by the setting sun.
Looking south along the Railpath, just north of the Wallace Ave. pedestrian bridge, 2010-06-06.
Another photo of one of the little parasites we're finding on our peach tree. Right about now, it would be very useful to have a good macro lens for my camera.
You can see the parasites better in yesterday's photo.
Our peach tree has been having a bit of a rough time this year. It has been affected by a fungus called "peach leaf curl", so it has lost many leaves and we also had to remove all of the fruit that was starting to grow. This will allow the tree to focus its efforts on healthy leaves, rather than producing fruit.
More recently, I noticed these strange circular black things all over the tree. Sort of like little black half-balls, a couple of millimetres big, clustered in various places around the tree. When I pick them off, they're sort of squishy and juicy. Still not sure what they are. Any ideas?
UPDATE: This is a form of fruit tree scale. Typically controlled by washing, horticultural oil spray, etc.
Some graffiti next to the railway tracks just south of Casa Loma, between Bathurst and Spadina.
Taken while out for a walk around The Annex, 2010-05-30.
Same as yesterday's photo, but with a view of what's inside the railway car: a bunch of steel plates being used during track construction.
