De La Salle Beach in Sutton

IMG_3163This is an Ice Wonderland right here in Sutton, Ontario….

unbelievable how there is sooooo much ice on the beach! This is not to far from us about 30 minutes driving…people where still on the ice doing Ice-Fishing…IMG_3177

I guess they know what they are doing….felt a little more comfortable staying on land at this time of year.

WINTER here in Canada…

But to top it of even more a friend of mine  has seen  “Schlüsselblümli ” in the forest out already….really I am crying now!

It used to be that you there…Yes You,“Weather in Switzerland” !

were a month ahead of us here in the Canadian North of Toronto, but not two full Months!!!

What was my day like youmay ask …smiles fun filled with snow! Really softly falling down this morning, shoveling during the day, sunshine to finish the perfect day at minus 15 temp…cooooollllll

Yes, You see it correctly I have skis on the fence and that all year around…

just my kind of artsy funky fun…

 

 

Mushrooms After Storm

IMG_9888After we had a nice view days doing things around the house over the Labour Day Weekend…part of hurricane Harvey must have made its way up to us …with rain and Thunder. So the grounds are all wet this Tuesday Morning.  A perfect day to doing some more cleaning I thought and getting ready for the colder season again.

So as I am waiting for the water to drain from Hot Tub ….I noticed a cluster of beautiful Mushrooms had grown on our front walk way…so delicate and pretty.

See how only 20 minutes of lighting makes a difference in the picture ….and one hour later they are all drying up and shriveled up looking…..I guess by noon they are gone again…

So two hours have past since I started this post ….and you should see how black the sky is right now…..lol I am getting soaked by rain and hail….

 

 

Black Spanish Turkeys

File 2017-08-24, 8 45 28 AMNever expected this when my husband and I looked at stepping-stones last evening.

Don’t think I ever had turkeys that close to me…smiles.

Black Spanish Turkeys

Love how regal they both held up there heads….look at how amazing there colouring is!

Even had lots of geese waddling around us as we wandered around with the owner looking at stones I thought…!

Now I am interested in these Turkeys telling me how it is living here….hahah…gobble gobble.

Chicken where all in there coop and just out of curiosity (Thought of you Ave)  I ask if he had Silkies or a Giant chicken? But he did not have them anymore.

What an experience to see ….

Raindrops

IMG_9701 (3)So you said it is raining again…well yes we have had a fair share of rain this spring and yes summer…Thunderstorms are usually here too.

So the one good thing is the grass …well the weeds are growing like mad.

 

I always have had a interrest in taking water droplet picture in the hope one day I can see the reflection of me in them …no luck so far. Or I just have not mastered the technic of this yet. I am hopeful one day I get it right.

But here I think these pictures are not to bad….really love the spiderweb and the funny end bloom of the Clematis flower.

 

 

Also genug mit dem Regenwetter … gut ist es schon doch haben in diesem Frühjahr einen fairen Anteil an Regen gehabt und ja immer noch obwohl es Sommer ist! Gewitter kommen halt auch dazu. Lach das Gras … sowie die Unkräuter wachsen wie wild.

Ich habe immer ein Interesse an Wassertropf und bin in der Hoffnung eines Tages die Reflexion von mir in eine Regentropfe zu sehen. … kein Glück so weit. Oder ich habe die Technik noch nicht beherrscht. 

Diese Bilder sind aber recht gut  … das Spinnennetz und die  ende Blüte der Clematis Blume gefallen mir besonders gut.IMG_9707

My “150 Canada Celebration Tulip”

“150 Canada Celebration Tulip”

White And Red I thought…..but Yellow and Red mine are…

Smile “Nature”  has it’s own way.

They where to be pure white with red. Was it to be red Maple Leaves from what I hear?

File 2017-05-31, 3 51 16 PMMagical I guess they are now.

I was kind of surprised too when the one of 50 bulbs I planted last Fall opened up YELLOW with red markings….

Really?! was my first initial thought…..

Finally…today we have some sunshine for my 50 Tulips to all open up…and it looks like I have more than 50 heads yehhh……yes all in light yellow… but one. Look at the one that looks like Micky Mouse Ears.

very pretty and with jagged edges… like someone did some paper cutting all though the edges.

Have to say there is not much white to them ….but who cares they are pretty and

on really super tall stems too. I hope they will last for at least two weeks.

And I am sure we all will have a fun 150 Year Canada 

even if our tulips are Yellow with Red…

Happy 150 Year Canada…
