We arrived to soaring temperatures – Toronto’s hottest day of the year so far. Maybe it was the mellowing affect of the sunshine, but I was struck by the cheery, companionable hum of conversation on the subway as we crossed the city West to East from the airport to Woodbine.
Even though it was a fair distance, we chose to walk our cases from the subway station (on Danforth) down Woodbine to Queen St and along to Waverly Road in Beach, where we are staying. Even here, on one of the busier roads, there were trees and lush gardens ranging from wild banks of grasses through all styles of more formal planting. It seems hard to believe that Toronto experiences harsh winters in the face of this abundant green.
Arriving at Accommodating the Soul, we relaxed on the porch as we waited for our hosts, immediately at home. . .
