We are sooo fortunate to have 3 of our adult children and their families living near by…but in another province lives our son and his family…we are missing the twins and their big sister and their parents. Thankful always!!! for virtual visits. They keeps us connected. When we started out as grandparents over 2 decades ago, this wasn’t available, and it wasn’t imagined by us yet. Thank you Technology.

Grandchildren were making new pathways yesterday on untouched snow…such a remembered pleasure.
And today I couldn’t forget that they had been visiting, as I found these 4 Lego horsemen hanging on the handle of the skylight my studio. The sight made me laugh outloud! then I thought about the “Walking Iris” plant that sends out new plants….and thought that grandchildren, wherever they are, even if they’ve “walked away” to new pursuits in different cities, keep enriching our lives.
This is a “Walking Iris”..it sends some leaves out that each bear a bud, which you can see in the first photo…and then the bud blooms, into this small but gorgeous iris flower, which lasts for one day only…you need to be there, at home, watching, to not miss that day. It gives a lot of pleasure for something so small…and each of those new flowers then start to grow a new plant (walking) that you can remove and plant and pass on. You can see one in the first photo on the bottom right. Now don’t all line up at once…
A snowy Saturday, perfect day to hole up in my warm studio and work on a new lap quilt.
Remember when a mask meant a Masked party…this was in November 2019…only a few months later we started to talk about very different masks. We don’t have recent photos of us in masks. Need I say more?
Just think, less than 6 weeks now till Easter! don’t get the “winter blues”.
The “LOOK OUT” never fails to impress, any season. I want to try to get this photo, from this angle, each season…if I remember to! Singing “Unforgettable You”.
Scott’s Bay beach…good anytime of the year.
Here is the statue of engineer Vernon Smith, hands on a map of the Wolfville area, a man who used the latest technology in 1869 to save a section of the railway that passes through Wolfville. The statue is staying “safe” with the current “lastest technology”…a MASK.
What happened to colour? How can I cope? Help, I’m locked in a colourless world! Actually it was a beautiful snowstorm yesterday and today was a sunny winter day. I can say that cheerfully as we’re more than half way through winter. But I would miss a good fall of snow…I would miss seasons.
