Who was Cassandra?

  • In the Iliad, she is described as the loveliest of the daughters of Priam (King of Troy), and gifted with prophecy. The god Apollo loved her, but she spurned him. As a punishment, he decreed that no one would ever believe her. So when she told her fellow Trojans that the Greeks were hiding inside the wooden horse...well, you know what happened.

Lovely to see these photos, Beth. These ruelles can, indeed, be veritable oases of calm, and the closed-off ones are magical for kids. Much planting is taking place around the city, and the enhancement is immediately obvious, especially to pedestrians and cyclists. Alas, the effect on air quality will probably be negligible, for, according to the CBC, and as measured by the global positioning systems provider, Tom-Tom, Montreal is now the city with the worst morning traffic in the whole of Nth. America.

Man! And Wow! What gorgeous colors and marks and textures! Stopping in here after another stop at Lucy's blog. So glad the threads binding us together are still intact.

Beth, I love these, especially the one with the little kitten peeking out under the fence. Reminds me a lot of the walks I take down alleys here in town. So much more interesting than the front yards. Happy autumn!

So lovely to see all this nature proliferating in back lanes, usually full of debris and greyness. Great photos, Beth.
