Forty years ago today, we set out on a journey together as husband and wife. A few years later , the ‘table for two’ became 3 then 4 then 5. A decade and a half later (ish) two flew the coupe then a few years later our baby left the roost.
Over the following years additions to the families of our precious offspring eventually increased the number of ‘arrows in our quiver’ to 13! We look forward to a gathering of this precious group very soon but today on the day of our 40th wedding anniversary, it’s a lakeside table for two (even dusted off the wedding china!)
Side note: We planned to eat our yummy dinner of blue cheese encrusted tenderloin and strawberry pecan salad in the porch then decided the outdoor photo would be more impressive. The temperature went from 25 C to 30 something in the short time we prepped dinner! We ended up wimping out and retreated to enjoy the view from the cool air conditioning inside our little house on the lake.
Loving life together!
May every sunrise hold more promise and every sunset hold more peace.
Our daughter’s Vizsla loves to try and catch droplets of water kicked up by the kids. I took dozens of burst images to capture some of his crazy contortions. This was my favourite.
Summer brings us the full spectrum of colour. All the colours of the rainbow appear in different times and places; sometimes all at once like in a rainbow.
A few summers ago, I caught a hint of a spectrum on the surface of the lake. Enjoy it in the June desktop calendar.
I love wild irises for the crisp, pointy deep purple roll that unfurls to display bold, intricate veins of purple. Almost transparent, delicate edges uncurl then curl again.

April and May respectively. I can’t wait!

The change in the angle of the rising sun is much more obvious to me in our new home as the window in my new creative space faces east. Earlier and earlier the sun (when not hidden by cloud) breaks through the backyard trees and directly into my eyeballs as I sit at my desk. Having just moved, renovations are still under way and the window covering for my workspace is not yet in place. The movement of the sun peeking in over my computer chases me into posture changes as I type. I don’t mean this as a complaint; I welcome the warmth and promise of summer.
The snow won’t be gone by the time I post next month’s calendar but I promise I will capture something without snow in it.
