October Squares – Circles and Squares

I’m posting these for Oct. 9 because I feel I”m behind in this challenge

The squares are from an art challenge that I started in the summer and the circles are from nature.

Lines can be found anywhere and nature has some wonderful lines if you look close enough.

October Squares – Past Delights

….thanks to Becky B for hosting Past Squares https://beckybofwinchester.com/2021/10/01/past-squares/

There are 4 years of Becky’s Square Challenges with 12 topics. This month we’re looking back at the prompts from past years and we can choose any photo as long as it is square. For Day 1 I’m going back to Lines and I’ve chosen the architectural lines in the hallways at the McMichael Gallery.

Home for the Neighbourhood Critters

….thanks to Becky B for hosting Tree Square in July https://beckybofwinchester.com/2021/07/28/tree-square-28/

Trees provide us with shade, oxygen, lumber, food and shelter for the critters of the world, including insects, birds and a variety of tree mammals.

Here in the city trees like the one below have been home to numerous racoon families in the past. I haven’t seen any in the tree this year but they are definitely around. We were sitting on our deck a couple of days ago when we noticed a family coming out of the roof of my neighbours garage. Unfortunately I didn’t have my camera in hand so I wasn’t able to document the event.

New Beginnings

I’ve been posting mostly mature trees and trees that are at the end of their life cycle. Here is how new trees begin.
