I thought it might be fun to take new words and find photos to illustrate their meaning.

….the park surrounding Dundurn Castle in Hamilton
My granddaughter loves parks and the park surrounding the castle is one of her favourites. She calls it the dinosaur park because the climber has pictures of dinosaurs on it. She’s a great climber and loves the slides and swings. She made sure that her Papa got on a swing as well.
In the far corner of the grounds at Dundurn Castle there lies a large, old fashion garden with flowers, fruit trees and vegetables. Some of the produce is used in the kitchen at the castle and the rest is donated to the city food bank. Much of the produce is true to what was grown in the 19th century. The gardeners were very knowledgeable and wonderful to talk to. I learned a great deal.
….the giants of the flower family
Now that summer is coming to a close these giant sunflowers are starting to loose their seeds and bend their heads. I was lucky to see them in different locations this week. The first was at Weber’s on my way to Kashe Lake and the second at Dundurn Castle in Hamilton.
