From the moment my son was born, there wasn’t much he didn’t miss. He was always looking, absorbing everything. Routine is something he and I very much have in common. Hence when his sister came along, he was there for her.
What makes me smile each and every time I see this photo is how big brother was showing little sister how to open her mouth wide for her yoghurt. The yoghurt he’d retrieved and opened himself just for her. My darling boy was very hands on!

Yesterday morning when I did the morning ritual of checking the driveway before heading off on the school-runs after breakfast, I couldn’t believe my eyes. Snow had been forecast for overnight, however I wasn’t expecting this!
Good thing we’ve been parking up on the road for the last week as no one had the energy nor the time to clear this before we left. Although it was trash day. We were so grateful for Master Fifteen who went ahead, clearing a path for us!
This View from My Front Porch is also my entry for the A Photo a Week Challenge hosted by Nancy Merrill Photography.
Standing in the middle of the Grand Canyon, swamped by the surrounding grandeur, colours muted from the dust, seeing this burst of vivid red hidden within the tendrils of this plant was an unexpected surprise.
Initially I thought this plant was a cactus but after an hour of googling, unfortunately I still haven’t found a name for it. Anyways, RED is this week’s A Photo a Week Challenge from Nancy Merrill Photography.
For something so natural and so totally random, the details in icicles always fascinate me. These were the icicles we discovered hanging on the side of Niagara Falls as we walked the tunnels underneath. They looked as cold as we felt.
Details is this week’s word from Nancy Merrill and her A Photo a Week Challenge.
As I hurriedly loaded the dishwasher before driving the children to school one morning before Christmas, I noticed some coloured lights out on the water. Quickly I grabbed my camera, took some shots and just missed that moment in time.
In my haste of course I had neither checked nor changed the settings on my camera hence the captures weren’t quite as anticipated. That moment of what appears to be pilot ship meeting the cargo shipped, just missed. Next time!
With FRESH as this week’s challenge word from Nancy Merrill Photography, I couldn’t resist the opportunity to share another photo from last week’s fresh snowfall. Note: Snowfall here is a rarity in the last quarter-century.
The reflection of the pier lights in the harbour behind us created the most glorious background for our neighbour’s tree which, for me, was perfectly coated in just the right amount of snow!
