A bull and no beat? Excelsior!

Something in this reminds me just a bit of our Picasso etching (signed only in the plate or we'd be rich retirees.)

No bear in the Chinese zodiac, Bob. That Picasso was a sneaky one, eh?

Lovely. I can imagine sitting there like the young woman going into a bit of a trance with the sound of the falling water. Hope she's not looking at her iPhone.

As I recall she was eating lunch, Jean. Done that myself there.

Another great candid shot John. I like the fountain and I can imagine it being quite relaxing to sit near it. I also like the bronze animal heads. I've just had a quick look online at Ai Weiwei's exhibition.......it's very impressive.

Thanks, Keith. They now have jets of water coming out of the concrete behind the pond, too -- similar ones have proven very popular nearby at Dundas Square. Something for the kids to run around in without getting heatstroke.

The one in the back looks like a dragon (?)
And how is this summer looking? Are you still home-bound?

It's still hot and humid, Sarah. I have been getting out, but usually end up taking refuge in someplace air-conditioned.

Looks very cooling and fresh!

Come to think of it, Denis, despite the place being practically all concrete, it is a refreshing environment. I can't walk by without wanting to sit down and enjoy it. And in the winter it's invigorating, with skaters tearing round the ice.
