These 10 photos were all taken during a morning birding walk in Tadoussac or in our friend's garden on 13 May 2018. I have now reached Day 7 of our two-week holiday in Ontario and Quebec, so I guess I am very roughly half way through. The next photos to…

After posting several horribly distant photos of birds, I thought I would jump ahead three days and post a close shot of this White-crowned Sparrow on the fence.

Thinking of you Pam J : ) Hope this vibrant Peony helps to brighten your day.

This just had to be posted. My photostream had become very 'green' (my least favourite colour, I think) and a splash of vibrant colour was desperately needed! This was one o…

Lest We Forget

Lest We Forget
How important it is for us to remember those who have served their country (not just Canada) and made the ultimate sacrifice. Unfortunately, there are thousands more on this Continent and elsewhere across the globe, who have returned from fighting, only…

Wish I had not looked at the weather forecast just now - snow-rain showers this afternoon and evening and snow for tomorrow (Monday), Tuesday, Friday and Saturday. I had been wondering whether to join friends for a birding walk this afternoon, but I gues…

Birdhouse with a difference

Birdhouse with a difference
On 25 October 2018, I dashed down to a place that I had been curious about for the last few years. Every time I drove the highway, I would pass a sign that said Kayben Farms. My daughter had posted photos from a visit there with friends a while ago and…
