Tree Through the Roof
The interior of the Glebe neighbourhood blocks harbour some great trees. Some were planted intentionally, others by squirrels and still more 'volunteered'. I imagine this ash tree behind a row house on 2nd Avenue established itself when there was a simple, open stoop and step to the kitchen door. Porches with roofs were added subsequently, but fortunately some tree loving carpenter, used the good judgement to preserve the tree, by letting it poke through both the porch and shed roof. Those are the kind of quirky surprises you discover between the streets.
