Chinese Hibiscus

I’ve simply called this flower a hibiscus but apparently it has a grander name…”Chinese Hibiscus”…the leaf of this plant is lovely in it’s own right!flower.2016


a splash of color…

more berries…


do you know?

I like this bush with the red berries on it but have to admit I don’t know what it is…do you?  When I look closely it looks as though there was a flower at the end.   Is this a seed pod?



Fall is upon us here, the changing of the leaves are almost completed…I’ve glimpsed the process but not had much chance to photograph it this season.  How about these for some color?   I love cut flowers in my home, usually have a bouquet of something…right now it is a couple of the pumpkin arrangements, but they are wilting fast.



I’ve been around…

I’ve been taking photos since the spring, but they have been different than what I usually take…for the most part the photos have been of veggies, fruit, artisan items and people.   I’m still not happy with my photos of people, but will persevere.

I’ve not posted nor visited much as time was limited for me.   That is coming to an end this week as the North Bay Farmers’ Market last day is this Saturday.   I intend to be around more at least I hope so!  It will be nice to take photos of landscapes, the lake, trees, etc., again.





the growing season in my area is behind due to cold wet weather…but the produce is finally beginning to arrive at the North Bay Farmers’ Market.  These shots are from both the Saturday and Wednesday Markets last week.  Raspberries, snow peas, peppers,  cherry tomatoes, cucumbers and red and blue potatoes.

So happy to see the raspberries, they are my favorite…


don’t these look delicious…


here are the blue and red potatoes one of our vendor grows, apparently they are high in anti oxidants…and delicious in a potato salad!

last but not least, plump red cherry tomatoes…

I’ve taken a liking to “wild flowers’…those that are planted to appear to have no pattern but actually were planted with care to produce such an appearance!



In honor of those who those who served in the past, those who lost their lives and those who are presently serving their country…

Someone asked me what this symbol is…this is a Poppy, in Canada many of us wear it on our left lapel for approximately two weeks before November 11th. Our Canadian Legion offers these to the public for a donation, raising money for our Veterans. We call November 11th, Remembrance Day, Poppy Day or Armistice Day…we wear the Poppy as a symbol of respect, remembrance and thanks to past present and future fallen soldiers, and to those who continue to serve their country!
