Backyard Roses


July 5, 2015. Thunderstorm day today, so I was around the house most of the day. In the back yard a thicket of rose bushes has developed; it's a very impressive bunch of roses, and I'm not sure what we can do with them. From Flickr http://ift.tt/1G2arEC

Nation River


July 3, 2015. Meetings this morning, bt I had time to get out this afternoon and go back to Casselman for another look around. It's about a 30-40 minute drive from NRC's Ottawa office. From Flickr http://ift.tt/1CguzIn

Ottawa Night

Kiesza


July 1, 2015. Canada Day in Ottawa. This is actually the first time I've every done it Ottawa style. This is Kiesza (far right) who led off the show at Parliament Hill with Hideaway. Brilliant day today walking around in thunderstorms and taking a pile of Canada Day photos. From Flickr http://ift.tt/1JyrBkH

Honeysuckle Rain


June 29, 2015. Spooted the find misty raindrops on the honeysuckle beside the house on the way to the office. I live these bushes - they are surviving, even thriving, in harsh growing conditions, they have nice flowers, and as we'll see, they'll soon have berries. Anything that feeds birds works for me.

Mystery Rose


June 28, 2015. We're not sure exactly where this rose came from, but as we were 'decluttering' - loading old magazines into the car, to be specific - we stopped to look at this tiny rose that volunteered its way into our front garden. As you can see placed against Andrea's fingers, it's tiny. But we like it anyways. From Flickr http://ift.tt/1g2607D
