THANKSGIVING IN CANADA!

H2O is the Weekly Photo prompt. How timely to have this focus on Thanksgiving weekend here in Canada!

So vital for our lives on this planet, water is to be treasured as a resource.

Sadly, sometimes, it has been taken for granted, misused, polluted.

Other times, water has been the inspiration for artists, photographers, planners.

After a very dry summer here in southern Ontario, I am thrilled to capture water in a rain barrel at the side of our house. I used that water to sustain perennials in the garden. These little roses are some late bloomers for autumn!

2016 PINK ROSES IN OCTOBER!

I am always excited and amazed to spot raindrops on roses, sometimesjust like the song!

As we ease into the Thanksgiving long weekend in Canada, I am thankful for all our blessings — water, harvest, family & neighbours. Have a good one!

  1. Happy Thanksgiving, Patricia. Timely comments on water. Corporations use excessive amounts of it and the bottled water craze is bad on two fronts, water usage and plastics. The rains have arrived on the Island and I am grateful. The trees need it.
