Bright Square – April 18, 2021

….today would have been Mom’s 90th birthday

Thanks to Becky B for hosting Bright Square for the month of April.https://beckybofwinchester.com/2021/04/18/bright-square-18/

A few days ago I posted a photos of my narcissus plants that were about to open up. I called it Bright Future because they symbolized the ongoing beauty that I should experience every spring from here on and be reminded of my Dad who recently passed away.

Two of the flowers have opened and the rest are taking their time but we’ve had a few cold days and I’m sure when it starts to warm up again the rest will follow.

My Bright Spot for the Week

….I thoroughly miss baking at the inn twice a week

It’s been more than a year now that the bakers and I at Montgomery’s Inn have gotten together to make and bake bread. I miss the friendships and the actual physical attributes of making dough and baking bread in a wood burning oven.

My one bright spot of the week is when I can drive to the inn to pick up fresh vegetables, eggs and meat from the Farmers’ Market. For the last two weeks the vendors have been able to set up outside. This week I took time to walk around the Inn and enjoy the views.

These New Bulbs Have a Bright Future in my Garden

….thanks to Becky B for hosting BrightSquare https://beckybofwinchester.com/2021/04/13/bright-square-13/

Last fall two close friends gifted me 50 narcissus bulbs to plant in my front yard. Liz came over and helped my plant the bulbs around the tree, the hydro pole, along the wall and in the flower bed. They started to emerge last February and are just about ready to bloom.

The flowers are a remembrance to my father who passed away last October. Hopefully they should pop up every spring. If they are anything like my daffodils this year they will probably multiply over the years.

Bright Side of Life

thanks to Becky B for hosting BrightSquarehttps://beckybofwinchester.com/2021/04/12/bright-square-12/

Children always see the bright side of most situations. Rain….that means puddles….that means getting on your rain boots, or not, and jumping into the water to make the biggest splash possible.

Thanks to my daughter and son-in-law for the last two photos that I’ve posted to BrightSquare. When I do get to see my granddaughter she always wears a mask and stays a least six feet away. Got my first vaccine yesterday and hope that in two to three weeks we can see each other again. Right now the whole province is in lockdown again.

Bright Eyed and Minus One More Tooth

Luckily Dad helped extract this tooth before she swallowed it. Not sure what the tooth fairy would have done if that had happened. As you can see my granddaughter is pretty pleased with herself.

A New Gnome to Brighten My Day

….I secretly love gnomes

Thanks to Becky B for hosting Bright Square. Every day this month we are encouraged to take square photos of anything bright. Here is my newest addition to my gnome collection and it is certainly the brightest one I have. I suspect after one summer in the sun it will fade like the others but that will just add to his character. https://beckybofwinchester.com/2021/04/04/bright-square-4/

A Bright Idea in the Park

….thanks to Becky B for hosting BrightSquare this month https://beckybofwinchester.com/2021/04/03/bright-square-3/

Since I missed yesterday I have two for today.

Camping in the local parks is prohibited but these girls were merely sheltering themselves from the cold wind coming off the lake. I knew there were girls in the tent from from all the chatter and giggles I heard as I walked by with my dog.

Seeing this swarm of seagulls over that bright blue water of Lake Ontario was a bright spot in my day.
