A Tree in the Park

I love Trees!

In the Park on Gordon Street that runs along the river near the Covered Bridge, I found this gorgeous tree.

My friend took a photo of my dog, Geordie, and I at the bottom of it.

Look Up! Way up!

And here's a closer one of Geordie and I

Look up!


How often do we take the time to look up to see what's above the doors into our important buildings! I love the carving above the Guelph City Hall main door.

How Many Cobs on a Corn Stalk?


My granddaughter and I were wondering what the average number of cobs of corn were on each stalk. Some had said that each produced only one cob and others suggested 5 or 6!

So, as she was busy counting randomly, I thought a photo of her would be nice as she was dwarfed by the high stalks. She's only 11 years old but 5'3" tall!


I just wanted to crop her out of the larger photo for her parents to have and thought I'd share with you all too. She's a sweetheart.


How Many Cobs on a Corn Stalk?

Do you know?

We counted many cobs on corn stalks last Saturday.

Excitement is Rising!

The Excitement was Evident here in Guelph Today!

As Voting Day Approaches, Don't forget to get out and exercise your right to vote here in Canada!

Today, here in Guelph, the Prime Minister of Canada, Stephen Harper, visited and I got to shake his hand. No matter what party you follow, it has to be a privilege to meet the leader of your country. He was such a gentleman too as he spoke to me.


This rally was held at the local Conservative Party candidate's riding office on Victoria Road South, here in Guelph.


It was a very exciting time for hundreds of people...

Some, as in the photo below, were too young to vote and some, as this little baby boy, slept through it!!!

Raspberries in October!

When I arrived home from Falls Church, Virginia last week, I was so pleased to see quite a crop of beautiful raspberries waiting for me to pick!

I grew up with the raspberries that started to be ready to pick around July 12 and two weeks later, they were finished for the year! And the rows of canes sat there taking up valuable room in the garden waiting for next year.

I was introduced to "ever-bearing" raspberries a few years ago when a friend sent me two canes which I temporarily placed in my side flower garden border near my deck and they have never ceased to amaze me always producing so many gorgeous berries right up until the time the snow flies.
