Garden Flowers

After four years of summer neglect, my garden is rolling along. Lots of weeds and definitely needs some tidying up, but it’s doing pretty well, considering.

The Lambs Ears (above) are happy with their temporary home. Read more “Garden Flowers”

Overpass, Overhead and Over Land

image of crossing overpasses over the 401Two weeks ago I went on a road trip with a friend who was good enough to do much of the driving.

I finally got a chance to snap some shots of the amazing architecture that spans parts of the 401.

I’m in awe at these incredible structures and their asymmetry. Read more “Overpass, Overhead and Over Land”

Mom Says It’s All Going To Be OK

image of rainbow over suburban house in london, ontarioFor those of you who don’t already know, my mom, Bernice Vincent, died on Friday, March 25th.

You can read the obituary, a kind tribute by James Reaney, and an interesting article in the London Free Press. Or review her career as an artist on her web site.

Here I post this rather poor photo, taken two hours after her burial. After a weekend of mixed weather including sun, warm, cold, rain, snow, sleet, cloud and clear, the day of mom’s funeral was primarily sunny with swaths of interesting cloud.

At the cemetery someone looked up and said, “it’s a Bernice Vincent sky.” Someone else piped up, “they’re ALL Bernice Vincent skies.”

After we got back to mom’s place and were beginning to relax, the clouds, very briefly, opened up, then broke with sun in the west. For just a few minutes, hovering over the house, was this rainbow.

 

Thank-you, mom,

for everything.
