Gifts From The Past

By Heather / May 24, 2020

Have you ever got a gift that you wanted to regift? Well, I am so lucky that I like to keep mine! Often my family will give me plants as a present for birthdays or Christmas and I love them. At Christmas I usually get a Christmas Rose that as soon as the frost disappears […]

Daily Photo – Cut To The Quick

By Heather / May 18, 2020

Years ago I was cut to the quick. By whom… I never knew. One day I was hanging out in the forest enjoying the day and the next minute, the pain! I never dreamed that this could possibly happen to me. It was a long time ago but I can still remember the burning and […]

Daily Photo – Wood Frog

By Heather / May 17, 2020

I came across this little wood frog in a mountain ash tree. Normally the berries are red but this was still early in the season and they are still yellow with a pink blush on their way to crimson. The little frog caught my eye and I could hardly wait to take a photo of […]

Daily Photo – Camo on the Beach

By Heather / May 16, 2020

I was walking along the beach one day after the tide had gone out and found this specimen laying in the gravel. Seeing it from a distance my first thought was someone had discarded a piece of camouflage material. You always get the most interesting things coming in on the tide. But as I got […]

Daily Photo – It Had To Be Done!

By Heather / May 15, 2020

This was a case of having to, not wanting to. Well, many a little want to in there as well. The maple trees were taking over the yard. Okay… well maybe that is a bit of an exaggeration but hey… it runs in the family. About five years ago this maple had a trim. It […]

Daily Photo – The Dogwood Tree

By Heather / May 14, 2020

My fondest memories of the dogwood trees were searching for the flowers every spring. They came out in bloom in April and May around the same time as the bleeding hearts, trilliums and viola could be found in the forest. These trees aren’t the ones you see today in people’s yards and along boulevards. They […]

Daily Photo – Kaleidoscope

By Heather / May 13, 2020

Like a kaleidoscope of colour, this Queen Anne’s lace caught my eye. Just starting to come into bloom the opening flowers make unusual shapes and textures. When in full bloom they look like upside-down white lace umbrellas. Here they grow wild along the roadside and fields and parts of the plant are actually edible. It’s […]

Daily Photo – Spring Arrival of The Black-Headed Grosbeak

By Heather / May 12, 2020

Very exciting day! The spring arrival of the black-headed grosbeak. Like the rufous hummingbirds, I wait for them with anticipation wondering will they will show up this year. Normally they are very skittish and if you move by a window in the house or open the door they disappear. They don’t just disappear, I can […]

Daily Photo – Innocence

By Heather / May 11, 2020

This dear little Inca dove always reminds me of total innocence. According to Webster it means: Innocence means you’ve done nothing wrong. You’ve broken no laws, committed no sins, and are not guilty of any morally evil act. Oxford says: The notion of innocence refers to children’s simplicity, their lack of knowledge, and their purity not yet spoiled by […]

Daily Photo – After The Bath

By Heather / May 10, 2020

This dark-eyed junco spent the winter with us and one day when the sun came out I caught him taking a bath. I love watching birds take a bath. They take such joy in the process and I find most of the birds will bathe every day or even twice a day. I have a […]
