Saturday Photo: A Place for Day-Dreaming and to Day-Dream About

The sun is out this morning, and the temperature is only slightly above freezing, but the grass has begun to turn green and I've begun to think of summer.

This photo, taken last August, is of my favourite front gardens. It's just off two busy streets and is tucked inside a space perhaps 30 feet by ten feet, but it's a little paradise. As so many people in the center Montreal do, those who live here don't want to waste any good weather, and so they planted and trimmed trees around the edges. That's a hammack in the middle, and beyond a picnic table, making a great place to spend a hot afternoon or evening.

Of course, that's all a couple of months away, but spring days are designed for dreaming.
