Splash …

Blue Jay Blue Jays are like teenagers, always flopping about and shouting. They also like very much to take regular baths and showers and as we provide a heated water bath for them in cold Québec winters, how could this smart fellow refuse the opportunity. Metadata Copyright © [...]

Spring is coming … eventually

We have buds ... As temperatures dive and the depth of snow and ice increases it's good to know that our two thriving magnolia trees are covered in buds that will open to glorious flowers when spring finally arrives. Metadata Copyright © All images are made available under [...]

Close Encounters

The Third Man ... ? This is Place Jacques-Cartier in Montreal with the town hall at the top of the hill. It was strangely calm and quiet after the alien mothership had beamed up all the tourists and buskers. There were only two people in the whole square, sitting on that bench to the [...]

Northern Flicker

An early feeding trip for a local family of Northern Flickers brought three of them together into the garden this week. They were especially interested in insects lurking amongst the stones on "the beach". Flickers are, for whatever reason, exceptionally nervous birds that fly away if anyone comes closer to them than they deem [...]

Secret Gateway

Gateway with Clematis While walking around the town we happened upon this side entry to beautifully cool and shady side garden on a house we have walked past many times before without paying attention.

Misty Morning at Kenauk

Entrance to Lac Hidden Every now and again I am going to post a photograph "from the archives". This was taken in 2011 from the dock of a cabin we rented every September at Kenauk for a few days fishing, birding, botanising, lazing. We haven't been for two or three years after an unbroken [...]

The return of flowing water

The ice is gone Very rapidly over less than a couple of days, the ice went from the St-Lawrence and we are back to flowing water again. However, if you look at the foot of the tall tree you will see a few remnant, trapped plates of ice caught there temporarily. I am looking [...]

“Springtime in Paradise”

It's been snowing ... Mid-March in Montreal we wouldn't expect anything else - other than that friends from milder climates are sharing pictures of green grass and spring flowers while our brave clump of snowdrops that was standing tall yesterday is once again (third time) buried from site. Nevertheless, it's been a beautiful morning [...]
