“After all this time? … Always” #HarryPotter20

The Harry Potter series was introduced to me after my Mom died. I found a place to heal and a place to let my imagination fly on a broom.

This week and always. I am grateful for the friends that I found in the characters of this series. I’m grateful for the spark of imagination. I’m grateful for the magical trips to another world.


Colline was grateful for butterfly kits. What are you grateful for this week?

I’ve always been fascinated with the determination and focus that bees have. They spend their lives collecting pollen from the flowers in their area…even the ones that are too small to hold their weight!

I’m still not sure which photo I like best. The cropped photo, focusing on the bee or the one with the out-of-focus background. (taken with Asus Zenphone 3 Laser phone)

This week took us to Trenton, Ontario for an evening. It was lovely to enjoy an evening walk with new scenery.

The weather at home this week has been nice. Several evenings I’ve seen this young turkey wandering the neighbourhood. 🙂

Where did you walk this week?

I’ll have to search for a new photo (or two) for this week’s challenge but this photo from a few weeks ago is the first one I thought of when I saw the challenge. The red and white tulips planted in a specific order to form a maple leaf.
