This fabulous hummingbird is part of a massive mural in Toronto’s east end Chinatown.
How perfect to thank Cindy Knoke for her contributions to Kids’ Month.
After all, Cindy is the winner of the best and most hummingbird posts, ever!
Of Course the mural is not all about the hummingbird.
There are more aspects to this beautiful work.
Such as this flower at the opposite end, or are they leaves that look like a flower?
Mountain peaks and
… and mountain terraces to a shrine.
It was very difficult to shoot this with my IPhone.
The pic above is cropped. I had to stand quite far away to capture it in 1 piece.
Well, maybe it is all about the hummingbird, and its flower!

A big “thank you” to Cindy Knoke, a fave blogger of mine. She takes fabulous photographs, and shares them with us. Her blog is visually gorgeous and educational. Click on her pic, or name to visit her blog.
The Artists: It’s in the writing on the wall (which I can’t read)
It wasn’t always this glamorous out here in the alley.
“Destination Mammal Cabana” was a quirky mural. I adored it & walked by it almost every day. Click on the pic to visit the post I did 4 years ago. It’s now in RIP
Then, recently one morning, I walked through the alley and saw:
It was hideous.
Graffiti Art had been obliterated by graffiti throw-ups and tags.
Using Fairy Power, I got word of the devastation out to the street artists.
Soon after, on Easter Morning, I saw this:
It was like a dream come true!
So, I put on a clear plastic garment bag and a gorgeous 10 year old Vera Wang wedding gown. I hightailed it back down to the alley,
… whereupon Tensoe painted me,
… while I took in all the new art.
It had been decided by the artists that they would do predominately Graf Writing, as a means to keep the destroyers away.
⭐ Sherrie, there’s a rat in this slideshow for you! At least I think it’s a rat. Lol, last rat turned out to be a squirrel.
After I was finished, I was named Tenesa, and had my picture taken with all the Graf Writing and pieces.
♫ ♫ I feel pretty, oh so pretty ♫ ♫
Best time I’ve had since New Years!
Not sure how this happened? There was only 1 pic like this.
Oh no, it’s time to go! Sniff!

I would like to take a ⭐ fairy moment ⭐ here to thank Brenda Davis Harsham. Her blog, Friendly Fairytales is absolutely wonderful. It’s as though Brenda got lost in the woods, as a child, then was found and raised by fairies.
Brenda was one of the first two who said they would contribute to Kids’ Month. She wrote 3 poems. Thank you, Brenda!
I’d like to add that Brenda’s fairy knowledge of all lands magic gave me the idea for the title, and a centered concept for this post. In my heart I feel she is the “Redemption Wall Fairy”.
The Gown Artist:
Thank you, Tensoe! You are forever etched into my heart!
I would like to take an appropriate moment to thank J. Walters for the posts of hers I used for Kids’ Month. Her blog Canadian Art Junkie not only features Canadian artists, but is running a special this year featuring 150 Canadian Artists to help celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday.
