Weekly Prompts Colour Challenge – Vintage Red

…. thanks to Sue W for hosting the Weekly Prompts Colour Challenge https://weeklyprompts.com/2022/07/02/weekly-prompts-colour-challenge-vintage-red/

Nothing says vintage red to me like red roses, hibiscus, old fashioned mums, poinsettias and cardinals. There is no doubt that the interior of this royal bedroom in Amboise and the mini library are both vintage colours.

A Quick Stroll After the Rain

….walking through the neighbourhood streets

It didn’t look like I was going to get a walk in today but the rain was short lived. When the showers subsided I decided to take a quick stroll along some of the streets in my neighbourhood. The gardens are really starting to come together and the colours are wonderful. I’ve noticed that there is a campaign against hate and some lawns have signs denouncing hate and a number of windows have neon hearts prominently displayed where passersby can see them.

Good Monday Morning – May 16, 2022

….waking up to grey skies

When I woke up the day didn’t look too promising, especially for getting out for a long walk. I quickly got dressed and headed out the door to get a few steps in before the rain started. I managed to complete a few chores in the backyard as well, like putting away the yard waste bags so they wouldn’t get drenched before garbage day, and cleaning out the wasp trap and filling the bird feeder. Here are a few photos I took on my short walk.

About mid-morning the rain started and I drove my husband to the clinic for his bi-monthly shot. On the way back we stopped at the store to replenish our milk, egg, fruit and cheese supplies. Once we got back home we made our first meal of the day.

The rain hasn’t amounted to much so far and it looks like it may have stopped for the day. I might be able to get out for another walk after all but in the meantime I have some paintings to finish. I’m starting to feel better about getting ready for my solo art show at the end of June.

I’m a Fan of …….Spring Blossoms

….thanks Jez for hosting I’m a fan of…..https://jezbraithwaite.blog/2022/05/09/coots-fan-of-155/

This year I experienced three spring seasons. The first was in France where the blooms were out in early April, then in London where the trees were flowering in mid to late April and now in Toronto in early May.
