My work was somehow rudely interrupted by a mouse. That not so tiny grey furry creature zoomed under the Muskoka chair I was sitting on, and disappeared (nature’s magic). Well, it was really my pouring ‘green‘ thoughts that were interrupted. “What happened to my inside plant? Why did that one tiny fern at the window suddenly …

It is hard to believe that the Aurora Community Arboretum is about two decades old; a beautiful parkland stretch located in the East end of our town. The Aurora Community Arboretum is a unique green park and is accessible from many locations. Each entrance location is unique in its own way. I must say that there was …

He expresses how he feels. “Matthew are you okay? What are you doing?” I asked. “Mom it’s very annoying when you keep asking me all the time,” he replies. “Matthew when you ask me for a toy a million times, that’s annoying too,” I added smiling. “I guess we are both annoying then,” he replied. …

We are currently experiencing heavy May (2017) showers, that according to the weatherman will continue until Sunday. Potential spring flooding. So far, not too cold and not too warm, just perfect temperature for a steady unveiling of spring’s greens. The green picture is being painted as we speak. Today I volunteer in the school. It’s …

It was a beautiful day! The Aurora Arctic Adventure 2017 Family Day event at the historic Town Park on February 20th endured record high temperatures, perhaps even historic temperatures. The banks of snow from last week’s snow fall were big enough failing to melt completely. The ice ring was semi-functional and was not restricted to skates …

Apparently wild turkeys can fly. I saw it finally for the first time and this is my photographic proof and sequel on the sighting of wild turkeys in Aurora. I came back to see them the next day. I never got close to them, as interestingly enough, they kept moving away with every step I made towards …

The only ‘great’ portrait (from a portrait) I ever painted was of Copernicus. I was about ten years old when I had a few unsuccessful attempts to paint a portrait of someone and endured a constant frustration of not getting it right. Then I picked an easy target. Copernicus had a uniquely shaped easily reproducible hair …

We had a major fog day in Aurora that also went reported everywhere in York Region and GTA. It was more evident on the country side roads and less in the urbanized areas. I must say, no real winter wonderland magic lately, just a few times. Hopefully soon it will get a bit colder again and hopefully …
