Lens Artists Photo Challenge – One Single Flower

….thanks to Cee for hosting this week’s Lens Artists Photo Challenge

Not surprising that Cee would challenge us with a flower photo. She is after all the queen of floral photography. My problem is which one to choose, seeing that I post flowers every day (well almost).

Visiting From Afar

….every other week we drive to Hamilton for a procedure at McMaster Hospital and then we drive over to our daughter’s house and visit from a socially acceptable distance

This week our trip to Hamilton allowed us to see our granddaughter and daughter from the porch. Winnie proudly showed off her new bicycle. Fortunately is was a beautiful warm day and we were able to sit outside. We also brought her some new art materials and she promptly made us a picture in her new sketchbook.D76-E1156-982-A-4497-908-E-C17804788-EC9-1-201-a

Soon after she finished her picture she politely excused herself because she had to get things ready for her tea party with her other grandmother, whom she was seeing later that day. At 4 1/2 she seems so mature. It seems like it was only yesterday that I was cradling her in my arms.

Photo a Week Challenge – Fleeting

….thanks to Nancy Merrill for hosting A Photo a Week Challenge

Fleeting

fleet·ing
/ˈflēdiNG/
adjective
“hoping to get a fleeting glimpse of a whale underwater”
Similar: brief, transient, short-lived, momentary, sudden, cursory, transitory
Children grow up so quickly. A newborn quickly transitions from a helpless babe in your arms to an infant trying to push herself up and learning to express herself vocally. These are all the steps that I’m missing because of COVID-19. Thank goodness for the digital world where I can witness these things second hand.

Yesterday for a fleeting moment we saw our oldest granddaughter from a safe distance in front of their home in Hamilton. We were able to finally deliver her Easter gifts. Later in the day her mom sent us a photo of her enjoying her gifts.
