Our place from the west fields (77K)

Photo gallery

We have more pictures than we know what to do with! But every so often, we get into a mood to watch slides or clean out older trays... And when we do, we're often inspired to scan a few images for this page. The thumbnail images show the size of the larger version you'll get when you click them.

When I get a chance, I try to put up a page with a recent month's images as a sort of visual diary...

On the beach (118K)

May 1999: Laurie and George at a Georgian Bay beach near their Kincardine area home. The water is so clear and the rocks are so round...

New Years 2000: Laurie reading a new Rupert book to David and Trevor.

New Millennium? (104K)

January 2000: Chico and Tigger sparring on the ice on our pond. At the time, it was 2' thick.

Care to dance? (63K)

Marsh marigolds (83K)

May 2000: Marsh marigolds are amongst the first flowers of spring in the creek feeding our pond. The spread by bits breaking off and anchoring downstream.

July 1999: It was hard to pick this beauty and its bud. The Mackintosh variety name will be obvious to anyone vamiliar with Charles Rennie Mackintosh designs.

Mackintosh rose (49K)

Okay kids, tails up! (94K)

June 2000: A doe and her twin fawns dash across our east meadow. They'd been grazing near fresh-cut bales of hay and we were able to get a sequence of them running.

Explosion of Peonies (108K)

May-June 2000: The peonies are amongst the first to bloom — and they do it with such vigour! Katharine is tending to the soon-to-bloom lilies.

Then the colours really begin: iris, lupins and phlox, with their almost day-glow mauves.

Iris, phlox & lupins (133K)


July 2000: All the tending works wonders! But those tiger lilies seem a bit thick...

Profusion of lilies (143K)

Autumn forest (102K)

Thanksgiving 2000: Typical eastern hardwood forest — this was up at the cottage along Moisseaux Creek.

Archie?? (43K)

August 2000: Now who is that guy and isn't his hair a bit too thick??? (It looks good on you Greg!)

August 2000: So if you had an orchard like this, wouldn't you give tours too? Steve in his element during Mom & Dad's 50th anniversary celebrations in Summerland.
