On my way home this evening I stopped at the Centre for Inland Waters on Hamilton Harbour. Just to the north of this centre are several man made islands that were built for Gulls and Black Cormorants. There are literally hundreds and hundreds of these birds using these islands and the noise at times is almost deafening. In the background of this image are condos in downtown Burlington.
After dinner this evening I drove to one of my favourite places for sunset in Hamilton, Sam Lawrence Park. Earlier it looked as if we were going to get a thunderstorm, but it passed by us. The clouds however stayed around and made for an interesting sky.
Today was a beautiful day and I spent most of the day gardening and planting flowers with my family. I am titling this image “Tangled Grass” and just to provoke a bit of thought, think about your life sometimes and wonder what happens when you get into a tangled mess. How do you fix it? Do you cut the tangle out? Or do leave it to grow and become more tangled?
This afternoon I wandered along Main Street in Hamilton for an hour or so. I happened by this old house on Sherman Avenue north of Main Street. There was obviously a fire that consumed the upper right side of the house recently. Seems a shame as the house looked to be very beautiful with the big, mature trees.
Friday! Finally! The first long weekend of the summer of 2013 here in Canada! I wandered around Hendrie Valley, which is part of the Royal Botanical Gardens. I love this area! There are so many little creatures out and about and they are always scurrying about their business and yet curious about everything. This little chipmunk came for a visit. I love the way the sunlight was lighting him up. Have an awesome weekend all!
Late this afternoon I had to run into the city of Burlington. On my way back home I took the Lakeshore drive back and stopped at Sioux Lookout park along the shore of Lake Ontario. The water was very, very blue today and quite clear. Lots of geese around too.
I am asking (begging) you to click on the link below and vote for this image on the Fine Art America site. I need 250 votes to make it to the next round. I will pass out zillions of dollars (okay I won’t but I almost had you right?) to everyone!
