Living in a condor

"My Grandma lives in a condor," says Granddaughter importantly to her school friend.

A condor? I had to stop and think for a minute. Isn't that a dinosaur?
I googled "condor" and found out it was a new world vulture.
Hmmmmm....I knew that.

Well inside my condor I have an indoor garden.
Come and see....

Evening - the light is softer, caressing the flowers in my garden
Let's move in a little closer for a better look

I'm always excited to see the first signs of new life...
My orange hibiscus rewards me with a bud. She must love the south facing sunny window
First tiny goldfish bloom. Spring must be around the corner, even though it's freezing outside
Shhhhhh, crocus buds are sleeping.

Ahhhhh, the magic of sunshine  
Hello? Anybody out there?
Nope, the street is empty and so is the lake. Good- bye

Winter in Montreal

What's this rectangle doing on the frozen lake?
Let's take a closer look. Hmmm, could it be ice faeries preparing a dance floor?

Nahh, just some school boys making a hockey rink.    
Come on buddy, hurry up and tie your skates. It's not much fun playing alone. 

What better way to spend Sunday afternoon than skating on the frozen lake?

Well that was fun. Time to go home.

Just thought I'd snap a pic of this couple out for a chilly stroll on the lake

   Faerie lanterns in the trees? Naw, it's just a reflection of my living room lights.              
Good Night.
