These poor little spring flowers.. thinking that winter was over in Ontario, Canada.



The forgotten tomatoes are more than a little off season! Still on the vine long into the winter.

Crowds of tourists taking photos of ‘frozen’ Niagara Falls…”Tourist season” is typically thought to be during our summer.

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Off-Season.”

WP Photo Challenge: Off Season

🙂 They went on to win that game.

Room enough (a throwback Thursday post)

I read this challenge, and was immediately struck with the coincidence.

roomA little earlier today, I walked my baby girl to her job … (gulp) yes her first job. She’s in a glass “room” (car) heading down to where she works. As I watched her I could hear the song by Dixie Chicks… “give her wide open spaces, room to make the big mistakes.”


Like a few other English words, Room means two contradictory things. It can be the four walls that enclose us, giving us shelter and comfort but also limiting our movement. It’s also the limitless space into which we can wander and which we can fill — or try to (think about that expression, “room to grow”).

“Wide open spaces, room enough to make the big mistakes.” Dixie Chicks

I found a few photos for this week. I like blurred photos. I find they bring out textures that you never expected and allow your imagination to wander.

Above a rainy windshield while I wonder if I want to dash to the store. And the temperature controls the day both warm and cold, are blurred.

Below, this photo it brings out a feeling … It’s a very old church hall. The whole area is steeped in history and is said to be haunted. The blurred photo gives it a haunted feeling.
