So grateful for our beautiful home.
The water that I am lucky enough to enjoy.
The creatures that I get to share this beauty with.
The skies that surround us.
And the flowers. “The earth laughs in flowers.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
This year Spring may be taking it’s time to join us in Ontario but my little crocus’ have been peeking out. I am grateful that they are reminding us that while slow, spring is starting to awaken.

Among the many things that made last weekend wonderful was the sense of wonder that I felt visiting the butterflies, Niagara Falls and the floral showcase.
I hope you never lose your sense of wonder
You get your fill to eat but always keep that hunger
May you never take one single breath for granted

I am so grateful for feeling that sense of wonder. It felt like … there was magic in the air.
Surrounded by soft wings that floated, swirled, sat still and soaked in the sunshine. It’s incredibly peaceful and soothing in there!
Then we were next to the thundering of water. It was as loud as the butterflies were quiet. The make-you-feel-tiny volume of water will always amaze me.
Our final stop that day was to the Floral Showcase. Greenhouses that hold vibrant uplifting displays of colour and soothing, grounding shades of green. Everywhere you turned another leaf or petal caught your imagination.
A beautiful walk. Where did you walk this week?
I had the pleasure of visiting a few of the Niagara Parks Commission attractions this weekend. We took advantage of their WonderPass … great deal by-the-way. No affiliate links here just passing on some savings. “A penny saved is a penny earned.” ~ B. Franklin
I could spend days taking in the colour and texture; the warmth and peacefulness of the Floral Showcase.
Is there somewhere that you walk that you enjoy over and over?
This weekend we visited a world-known place, that is ‘in our backyard’. Thousands visit this attraction each year. While this weekend was on the warm side for our winter, it wasn’t as warm as this place.
I love visiting here. It’s amazing how such tiny, delicate creatures can make you feel small.
What’s equally amazing is the closer you look the less familiar/ less ‘of this world’ these creatures get!
I think you know what the subject of my photos is…
But I’ll wait until tomorrow to post a few other photos that will show you if you haven’t guessed!
