Thomas Hobbs Florist

Yesterday's post features a picture of the Woolworth Building in Kerrisdale. Just east of it, the neoclassical facade that is the Toronto Dominion Bank.

Today, that facade fronts Thomas Hobbs Florist. Just as Hill's of Kerrisdale has clothed me these past forty years, Hobbs and his Southlands Nursery has kept me in plants.

Hobbs is a controversial figure, and the highlight of my visits to his nursery come when he is roaming the grounds, pissed off about something. It is hard to avoid.

Here is a link to Hobb's blog.
