Lighting Up the Path

thanks to Becky B. for hosting January Squares https://beckybofwinchester.com/2021/01/31/square-up-31/

Can’t believe that this is the last day of the challenge, SquareUp. Becky has done a great job of hosting this challenge and I’m looking forward to the next Square challenge in April.

I have a few more square photos that didn’t make it into to 31 days so I’ll just post them as a bonus. You can interpret them anyway you want….messed up, tangled up, up the road, iced up, dried up, etc.

More UpSquare Trees – January 30, 2021

….thanks to Becky B for hosting January Squares https://beckybofwinchester.com/2021/01/30/square-up-30/

I’ve posted an uprooted tree earlier in the challenge but this one is spectacular. We discovered it on our walk through Ball’s Falls Conservation Area. Another uprooted or fallen tree had an interesting hollowed out core and I found myself looking up into the hollows of this tree.

Half Way Up – January Squares

thanks to Becky B for hosting January Squares, https://beckybofwinchester.com/2021/01/28/square-up-28/

Yesterday I went back to High Park to get in some more steps. I had to make a delivery to a friend who is in a downtown hospital so I decided to drive home along Bloor St and stop at the park for a quick walk. The walk ended up being a lot longer than I meant it to be and I had to make a decision at some point as to whether take a short cut back to the car or go the long way round. The short cut involved taking that huge stairway up the hill that I posted about near the beginning of this challenge.

In the end I decided to take the stairs. About half way up I stopped to take a picture of my progress. When I finally got to the top of the stairs I counted 90 steps.

I climbed up the first set of stairs but I thought twice about taking those steps in the second photo. Instead I opted to walk up the road a little further down the path.

Cheer Up – January Squares

….thanks to Becky B for hosting January Squares https://beckybofwinchester.com/2021/01/24/square-up-24/

Nothing cheers me up more that a bouquet of fresh flowers. Two of my favourites are these mini irises and yellow tulips.

Of course my granddaughters cheer me up even when I can only see them over the phone. Today is a special day in our family. It is Sevin’s first birthday today. We’re getting ready for a Zoom birthday party in the next few minutes.

Cheers!

Makes me wonder why some trees grow this way.

Love the views from the glider in this video

Covered Up – Day 21

thanks to Becky B for hosting January Squares https://beckybofwinchester.com/2021/01/21/square-up-21/

For Day 21 of Becky’s SquareUp challenge I found one of my favourite historical museums in Toronto all covered up for restoration work. This is Colborne Lodge located on the edge of High Park.

Fed Up…..

….with all the folks trying to feed him from their hands

This little guy decided to go back to chewing on bark rather than approach the kids trying to feed him from their hands.
