Transmogrify ~ Flags: WP Photo Challenge


I love visiting the Winter Festival of Lights in Niagara Falls Canada. The lights transform the night and spark my imagination. This display has been one of my favourites for years. The lights slowly transform the flag from the American to the Canadian flag.

There are dark shadows on the earth, but its lights are stronger in the contrast. ~ Charles Dickens

Tomorrow we get to see the children transformed into turtles, zombies and magical creatures. After we honour our service people on November 11, we’ll look forward to the transmogrifing of our Parkway.  🙂 Where does your imagination take you?

Project Maple

Would you like to help out in an exhibit to be displayed in Ottawa, our nations capital, in 2017?

Next year is the 150th birthday for Canada. Like other exhibits we have done that feature our global community, we are asking for help for the construction of the large Maple Tree to be on exhibit in Ottawa.

Specific instructions included in the original post include:

All submissions should be sent to us by November 1, 2016 so we can construct the tree to have it ready on time.

If we were having coffee… pondering the green.

If we were having coffee you’d be joining me on my front porch. The summer day is starting to warm up but it’s still shady here.

I’m not sure if it’s the heat plus lack of rain or just the hardiness of my annuals this year but my flower pots just are not as photogenic as previous years. I’m just not getting the blooms 😦  I used the same brand of potting soil but not the moisture control type. What would we be pondering if we sat on your front porch / balcony?

Over all it hasn’t been a good year for my garden. I’ve been loosing the battle to bugs with my new perennials and having to leave the lawn at a longer length to keep it green.

Which leads me to what I was pondering before you joined me. Why do my neighbours cut their lawn to a set length every week even when it’s brown and crunchy?  Is the length of the grass more appealing than the colour/health of the grass?

Well the sun is pushing the shade away. Time to get on with our day. Thanks for dropping by.
