Thursday Doors – Niagara Wineries

….thanks to Norm for hosting Thursday Doors

Lunch, five wineries, tastings and great company. Today my daughter and daughter-in-law joined my husband and me and together we took a drive down to St. David’s in the Niagara region. I knew ahead of time that I wanted to take part in Norm’s door challenge so I packed my camera bag in search of some great doors and wine of course.

We started out at Ravine where we had a wonderful lunch first and then began our wine tasting adventure. All in all we went to five smaller wineries, tasted some fantastic wine and met some wonderful people who were very passionate about their products.IMG-1754

….thanks to Cee for hosting the Fun Foto Challenge

We had an outing today that took us to wine country in the Niagara Region. To get there we travelled on the highway and country roads and over pavement, gravel and dirt.

Thursday Spikes – Abandoned Christmas Tree

….thanks to Becky B for hosting March Squares

Every year we debate whether our Christmas tree will be picked up on the scheduled date or if we’ll be storing it in a corner of the yard until we can get out and cut it up into smaller pieces to be taken away with the regular garbage. This year we were lucky and we didn’t have the problem of keeping it around for six months. Clearly though, some people in the neighbourhood missed the pick-up date or the truck missed the tree on the curb side.IMG-1741
