Dolce and Gabbana Adventures - WoofStock Toronto



Finally Mother Nature is blessing us with fabulous 29+ degree C. temps this week-end!!! and what better way to spend this sun filled day with Dolce and Gabbana? of course by attending WOOFSTOCK, North America's largest outdoor festival for dogs - right here in Toronto!!! - Who knew?

All types of dogs bring their human parents out for a day of tail wagging, butt sniffing and licking. Not to mention all the activities and events: wiener dog races, running of the pugs, Purina Pro Plan dog stars, stupid dog trick contest, Mr. and Mrs. Canine Canada Pageant, Ultimutts stunt dog show, best costume contest and of course Woofstock fashion show.

 

There are even some watering holes for the human parents ... Tito's Vodka was a huge hit.


Dolce and Gabbana sniffed and were sniffed by many new barkfriends...


Though we missed the doggie fashion show ... we did catch some of the tricks ... it was hilarious!


There was even a little Super Hero.... too adorable .. Toddlers and doggies need I say more?




Doggie strollers everywhere ....


Gabbana watching the doggie tricks...


Dolce waiting in line for a treat ...

This was definitely a fun event and one Mr. G and I will mark on our calendar to attend again next year. Miss Gabbana is already planning her fashion show attire.

Hugs and Blessings,

Afternoon Tea and Fresh Cut-Flowers



Stopping for a cup of tea in one's day is a brilliant way to calm the mind...



Today I'm enjoying my tea from a ceramic crafted teacup ... ah Paris, yes it is always a good time for the city of lights.


Today I'm also enjoying ... a slice of apple pie from the local bakery in town.


And since the gardens are not quite in bloom due to the long winter and extra cold spring... a bouquet of fresh cut flowers will add a little brightness to me tea corner.

Looks like I'm not the only one who enjoys my tea corner. Dolce and Gabbana are enjoying watching the squirrels, chipmunks, ducks, birds and the concessional bunny and turkey.

Where do you sit and enjoy your afternoon cup of tea? 


Love and Light,

Cherry Blossoms at High Park ~

one of life's remaining anticipation ...

Each spring I look forward to the explosion of pink blossoms at High Park (Toronto's version of Central Park in NYC). This year due to the brittle cold winter and cold spring the anticipation lasted slightly longer. The blossoms started to come alive the week-end of Mother's Day.


Sakura trees also known as cherry blossom trees are known for their elegance and beauty. Unfortunately they are also known for their short blooming periods. Approximately one week after the first blossoms appear, 'kaika', 'full bloom' or 'mankai' is achieved. 



The severe cold & prolonged winter which prevented many of the blossom buds to develop and instead promote going straight to leaves has resulted in the loss of many blossoms this year. 



Despite the lack of blossoms everyone was enjoying this annual gift from mother nature. Cameras, Iphones, Ipads and all sorts of digital image capturing devices were everywhere. In today's fast paced , instant gratification world ... one will have to wait another year before this gift from mother nature appears again.






Even Dolce and Gabbana were delighted with the cherry blossoms ...



Do you look forward to the cherry blossoms each year?


Light and Love,
