BLOOMS OF SUMMER INSPIRE!

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Inspiration.”

Canadian winters are long and cold. Perhaps that is why I am so inspired by the procession of blossoms throughout the warmer months.

August will bring new colours to the garden!

HALF & HALF WITHOUT THE CREAM!

In response to The Daily Post's weekly photo challenge: "Half and Half."
This week's challenge brought to mind some photos that I had taken  at Lake Huron in a much colder season.
Last year, on a very cold spring day, the ice collected along the horizon. A seasonal divider reminded us of the freezing temperatures and blizzards of previous months.
This image and memory of that cold day, made a hot July afternoon seem more bearable! :)
