Project 365 Clouds

We are beginning a new project. There is a community on Twitter that has made a project of finding, shooting, and posting a photo of clouds everyday. What do we do when there are no clouds, or the sky is completely grey? We have no idea yet!

The following are the first seven days:

St. Mary's

On our way home from a camping weekend, we took some time to stop in beautiful St. Mary's, Ontario. What a lovely and friendly town!

Love the architecture!

And the secret garden!

The waterfall was lovely too!
I want a birdhouse like this in our backyard!

One of the quarries.

This 1yo pup could swim and swim. He's a border collie mix. One of my favorite breeds!
The other quarry. It's for public swimming. It looked so inviting on our 90 degree Celsius day with a humidity to match.

It's so fun to visit new towns with cameras in hand!

In Search of Mulberries

We went in search of mulberries this morning. It was hot, hazy, and humid. It was also a very pretty walk.

We have to go through our neighbour's soybean field. We saw:

 Chartreuse clusters of grapes waiting to be ripened by the hot summer sun.

A cherry tree picked clean by greedy robins.

Delicate blossoms hanging from an unnamed tree.

Cabbage white butterflies enjoying their breakfast.

A frightened orange toad.

 Trees destroyed by time and weather juxtaposed against the blue and white sky.

A young sumac, still devoid of her red velvet coat.

And of course mulberries, not quite ripe enough for picking yet, so...

We walked down to the creek to see if there was any water still in it. There was. We saw, so we picked our way home across the bean field in time for a snack.

It's fun having our very own "trail" of sorts. We never know what we might see.

When asked what my favorite flower is, I always have a hard time answering.I've reached the conclusion that I love whatever is in season at the time. For now, it's a peony love. They're short lived though, so I photograph, cut them, put them in vases, and inhale their rich apothecary scent at every opportunity.

I am so thankful that the Lord saw fit to bless His creation with such an array of beauty.
