A Walk in the Park

Last week my friend Judith and I took a workshop on Garden Writing at the Toronto Botanical Garden in Toronto.  The traffic getting into the city was light that day and we made great time so that we arrived in lots of time before our class.  Judith opted to get a coffee and get settled but I had brought my camera with me.  The TBG is a wonderful place to visit at any time and there is always something to see. I opted to make a quick look around.  The containers at the door caught my eye right away.  Paul Zammit the new head of horticulture must have had a say in this one.  He is an amazing guy creating fabulous container displays. Of course this one was a fall design with a pom pom conifer, colourful kale and grasses.

I went directly down the slope to the shores of Wilket Creek to find things of interest to photograph. Even though there are no flowering plants on display at this time of the year there is still colour in the foliage of the shrubs and trees. The rocks make a wonderful addition to the look.  The shape and texture of the plants make for a memorable photo.

And of course there was a little falls that was interesting

And as I was heading back to the main building I rounded the corner by the greenhouse and spied this little guy peeking out the window.  How cute!

Abstract Flowers

I found this photo in my Lightroom files yesterday and I decided to join Bonnie for her monthly Pixel Dust Photo Art PhotoArtFriday. Her theme this month was funny enough abstract art.  So I added one of her textures called Si  Belle to my abstract flowers and that is it.

First Birthday

Yesterday my husband and I attended our granddaughters first birthday party.  The house was alive with little ones having a fun time of running through the house.  Kenzi wanted to join it but they kept knocking her down as they sped past her.  She is a trouper though.  No tears as she got back up and tried to go with the flow again. The hitch came when she was to participate in the smash the cake ritual that all of my daughter-in-laws family do at the first birthday.  Her maternal grandmother had made the smash cake and Kenzi was supposed to get down into it with both hands and get covered in cake.   Kenzi was having no part in it.  She cried as her hand was pushed into the cake.   Oh well maybe next year.  It was lovely to see all the little babies born at the same time as Kenzi and how sweet they all were.  Kenzi’s cake was an Elmo cake.  He is her favourite character.  I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday.  I can feel spring in the air even though we have quite a bit of snow left bu…
