green everywhere

I am blown away by some of the photographs that fellow bloggers post.  There are several who capture the most amazing pictures of flowers, not just the flower, but their artist reproduction of it as they see it through their lens is very interesting.

Living in the city, right next to the downtown core, the object of our landscaping when we bought, was to allow nature to grow and give us a bit of country in our own private space.  Perennials were fine while the trees and shrubs were growing, but as the bones of the garden grew, the perennials soon lost their place in the sun. Add two active dogs to the mix, and…  …. we now enjoy the serenity of an escape from the concrete and buildings around us, but have lost the colour of the annuals and perennials.

This is only the beginning of June.  The garden is only beginning its journey into the growing seasons.  So when I say “Wow, amazing” to my wonderful blogger pals, it is because I’m totally enjoying life through your photography and stories.  Thank you.

Life is gray without friends, my world is full of colour, I am truly blessed.

Bonjour, hello how are you today?

Good Morning, thought I’d show you the snow outside the house today, it isn’t so pretty today. After the huge storm of the other day, dropping over 50 plus centimeters on us, we still have a lot of it piled on the streets.  It is cloudy and overcast, and with the sidewalk plow having gone by, well this is what we can see. This is the pile along the street, and below is the snow on our front lawn.

The blue spruce is playing peek-a-boo, happy that we put a barrier between it and the sidewalk.  Not every day is sunny, and not all days bring out the crystal lights in the snow.  But it is still the same snow we love to see when the sun shines merrily on it, dazzling us with its glittering display.  I’m not a skier, but when I did do X-country, the wet snow of day such as this, was sloppy.  Temperatures are going up and the snow out there is being rained on.

Even the house has lost its country cottage charm this morning. A positive here, I see the bird feeder needs more seed.  Actually, I loved the vintage, look when we bought ther house, and even today, as I see her braving yet another winter…I admire how she has stood the test of time.   They the weather forecasters, tell us it will be a cloudy wet day, all day.  As the temperature rises, the streets will really get mushy.  Hmmm choices, stay in, go out, its darn warm and cosy inside, and I certainly have a lot of projects and things to do… isn’t it wonderful to have all these choices.  =^_^=  we can sit and share a cuppa tea/coffee..

Luckily I share my world with other bloggers who travel the globe and live scattered all over the world.  I know they’ll be dropping in during the day with stories of their own.  Many will bring a ton of sunshine they’ve captured here and there.  No matter where we are in the world, we are always sharing life/the Universe with others.  In today’s world of the internet and social media, we can cultivate and explore all parts of the world, make new friends, and best of all, we thrive, we grow when we allow friendships to blossom and bloom.  In exploring the various dimensions of ourSELVES through the friendships we make, our world as we know it, expands, we know that what is outside our door today, is only a moment in time.. in this very same moment and time, a friend is basking in sunshine on a mountain top or sandy beach.

Does anyone, can anyone remember or recognize these little give aways?

I once had these Black eyed Susans in our garden,  over time, they simply disappeared.

C’est la vie, such is life.
