More of Montrรฉal’s Ruelles Vertes #9

And we continue exploring in Montreal’s Plateau Mont-Royal neighbourhood.

Note: These shots were captured about a month ago. The leaves have all fallen now.

Do I see toys?

Yes! One of my favourite things about these green laneways: residents have made them a safe place for kids to play.

But we’re here for the doors, right?

Hard to believe that these next 2 come from opposite ends of the same laneway.

And these were all found somewhere in-between.

As always I thank you for looking ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Toys, basketball hoop, library and that amazing rainbow, all good signs. All well to you too.

    Here is the continuation of my Farnese tour, with one church and one passage:

  4. That rainbow fence is fantastic! A number of favourites here: the little door on the book-swap, the colourful toys in the leaf strewn alley, the creative graffiti… My contribution this week is https://americanfoodieabroad.wordpress.com/2020/11/06/doors-of-st-andrew/ Not so much doors, but doorways.

  5. Another little library!! I also like the fence that looks like Tom Sawyer started painting it in colors and then had to run off to go fishing with Huck. ๐Ÿ™‚ I also know now why my parents (living in Arizona) would exclaim about how many trees there were when they’d visit us in Ohio. ๐Ÿ™‚

    This made me so happy Norm, with itโ€™s colour and itโ€™s small library and a street where the children can play safely.
    Here is mine for this week … a bit melancholy.

  8. It’s great to see any city street safe for child play. One of the garage doors made me think of painting it with chalk paint and providing chalk for a tic tac toe game. Here’s my post for this Thursday: https://wheatsaltwineoil.wordpress.com/2020/11/05/along-the-rio-grande-thursday-doors/

    What a cool play space for the kids. We used to play in alleys that looked like the movie sets for film noir.

    How marvelous! My favorite I think is the first picture. It just looks so inviting to walk into that fairytale scene. I’ve been seeing the Thursday doors on other blogs for a while but never stopped by here before. Thanks for sharing! Janet

  12. I love the colourful fence. It will stand out nicely against the snow when it falls. Here’s mine, thanks Norm. https://jeanreinhardt.wordpress.com/2020/11/05/thursday-doors-still-in-dundalk/

    I love the toys, and the selection of rather utilitarian doors looking like back entrances to warehouses, the kind of things you might find on an industrial estate.

    Some Bristol doorways, with the emphasis on doorway, for you this week: https://scooj.org/2020/11/05/thursday-doors-5-november-2020/

    Happy to see a safe play place. I remember liking alleys when I was a kid, even with the occasional rat. My door today is just sad: It the door of my oven. Actually, not sad to me, because oven mean food and food R me. https://marianallen.com/2020/11/door-to-happiness-thursdaydoors/

  16. Enjoyed the photos of leaves, toys, the Little Free Library, and graffiti. A mixture that occurs frequently in cities all over the world, I guess. Thanks so much for posting. Here are some Homes of St. Michaels, Maryland, to share today: https://ohtheplaceswesee.com/2020/11/05/houses-plus-one-of-st-michaels-road-trip-2020/

  20. Love the play areas and the little library. ๐Ÿ™‚ There is a house not far from here where they painted their fence in multiple colors similar to the one here.

    The rainbow fence is interesting. I like that. The graffiti on the doors doesn’t charm me so much.

    I really like the fact that they’ve made it a safe place to play. We have a small group of kids who play at the end of our street. It’s so nice to see them out there having fun.

    I love the rainbow fence and the little free library. It looks like the library needs a little free grounds crew, but still good to see.
