The last few days in Toronto we’ve been adversely affected by the forest fires in north western Ontario. Hard to imagine that a forest fire thousands of kilometres from us could affect our air quality but it has. There was a haze that hung over the city and many people claimed they could smell the smoke. In the mornings the sun had an orange tinge to it and at night the moon glowed like a pumpkin. This is what the sun looked like as it came up through the trees in our backyard.
I can’t believe that another month has gone by. A lot has happened this month, some good and some not so good. The good side is that both my husband and I have received our first vaccination and our daughter and her husband in Hamilton have also been vaccinated. Our eldest daughter was suppose to get her shot today but her appointment was cancelled because they ran out of vaccines. She’s not too worried because the government is opening up clinics for her age group in 10 days.
I’m ending this challenge with a bright square of one of the beautiful gardens in the neighbourhood. All the bright whites and colours brighten my day and I hope these flowers are a bright spot in your day.
For my latest art project (courtesy of Carla Sonheim’s Year Long Class 2021) I had to paint the back of discarded art projects with colours that I wouldn’t normally put together. After these dried they were reassembled into little art journal books. I’ll post those very soon.
