More UpSquare Trees – January 30, 2021

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!

I found this beautiful video on YouTube that I think is perfect for this challenge and the music is great.

Makes me wonder why some trees grow this way.

Love the views from the glider in this video
