I Heard the Coyotes Singing Tonight...

... it's easy to forget, living in a suburb a few blocks off Yonge Street, that I'm surrounded on 3 sides by protected grenspace. Space that's likely home to a few gazillion wild beasts. The coyotes are often to the west - but tonight they were due south. Moving around in the summer, I suppose.

I can see the rosy glow of Toronto from my back deck. I rescued a wee toad that's tried to make a home under a maple tree in my back yard.

Yes, I'm still urban, but it's a pleasing thought to know that nature is still within reach.
