Monika has been busy this year making postcards and this one has all the requirements, for a postcard, printed on the back ... but this one is going into my small collection of art from internet friends.
I immediately fell in love with this one (they are all fabulous !) because it hit an emotional cord within me ... bringing back memories of lying in the tall grass when I lived out in the country as a child ... on hot summer days staring at the sky and dreaming ! It's simplicity drew me right in. Thank you Monika !
As well, I want to show some photos of the river that winds its way through my home town of Guelph. Yesterday a trip to Riverside Park was in order. A bit of diversion for my daughter as she awaits the delivery of her baby ... due today !, but will definitely be here for sure Aug. 15th !
Myself, 2 daughters and 2 gr.kids ... we had a wonderful time.
|'hey, guys, someone's brought bread !'|
... Canadian Geese, Mallards, seagulls and squirrels abound here, as well as people with bags of bread crumbs, kids, seniors walking, and dogs on leashes
|The Speed River|
|... what can I say ... I love stone walls !|

|south again from the bridge and over the dam ... when I was a kid this was an old wooden swinging bridge ... much more structured now|
