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)
Butterflies, hummingbirds & wind also pollinate, but bees do the lions’ share. Click on the next 2 images, & see bees working in all their glory.
At first, when I saw this mural on Queen East, I thought “Gorgeous”!
Immediately thereupon, I wondered why the artist had a clock set at 11:00, & gears in the mural with the bees?
Then it hit me!
Bees, & all pollinators are dying off due to pesticides & herbicides. It is their 11th hour. After discussing this with Marina Kanavaki, she made up her April’s clock read 11:00 for this post.
On Art Towards A Happy Day Marina spreads the importance of all life on the planet. If you click on her clock, bees will fly you to its original “Diamond Four” artwork.
So, let’s view this mural’s details from left to right.
Hello! Don’t bee afraid of me! I’m pollinating for you!
There was a shadow growing across the smaller right side of the mural.
I feel it is nature adding her own poetry. (blows up nicely)
When I looked across the street, I saw that the clock & a bee were reflected in the windows of a library.
I see time & the bee, melting …. fading away.
I think that I shall never see, a mural pretty as a bee! (TY, Joyce Kilmer!)

Click on the S6 Logo & the bees will fly you to Marina’s boutique. I’ve bought tights, a clock, travel mugs & make-up bags, all with Marina’s art on them. The quality is very good. Keep an eye out for discounts & free shipping!
