  From a sea of orchids she has selected all the colours for her wedding decor.

And these lovely plants will appear as centre pieces on the large round dinner tables at the reception. In less than two weeks we'll be celebrating her special day.

  The iPhone had some fun features that Buddy just loves. One of them is staring at the screen and then snapping a photo of ourselves. In this snap we are standing in front of the black walnut tree.

As we continued our stroll we saw the pretty blue chicory bloom. It was decided that it would be a nice addition to our wild flower collection. But we discovered more. 
The shadow of the iPhone made it into this snap. Buddy thinks that's ever so cool. See it?
We are going to enjoy the sunny weather and our annual Canadian Thanksgiving.
May your weekend be special for you too.

A Stormy Afternoon

   We took a chance. On the last day of September Buddy and I headed out for our stroll in our area. We were awed at the massive clouds overhead.

    In the snap above, to the left of the school, there appears to be water surrounded by distant hills but it's only a mirage.
  Though ready to burst it seems these clouds were not quite ready. The rain held off till much later that eve.
   These storm cloud images were so magnificent yet ominous at the same time. Buddy's words to describe them," WOW. Cool!" 
   Then last night as October arrived, the rain finally poured down. And with that came very strong cold winds. Our temperature had not risen above 8C(48F) by 2 pm even though the sun is shining brightly. We won't stroll in those gusty cold blasts today. We aren't ready to face the cooler weather yet but we're working on it.
